Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.

Shirts, socks, pants and underwear
Fall from me in a sweaty mess
And rest in piles upon the floor
I gather them into a bag.

Towels and bedding also, plus
Detergent and some dryer sheets,
And make my way out from the house
Down to the laundromat.

Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.

Images of pretty girls
Who lounge before me with their blinking eyes
They seem to summon me
Across the laundromat.

Ideas linger like a stubborn
Stain around a shirt collar;
The pretty girls just blink
Then make their way across the laundromat.

Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.

Sounds of laughter, as they ask
If I would like to share a dryer
Inviting and exciting me...

Prospects of undying love, the
Chance to save a buck or two,
Are things that cause me to say, "Sure!"
Across the laundromat.

Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soak, wash, rinse, spin.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.
Soon Išll get to change my clothes.
