Clothing Blues

You may remember when I rapped about our guard – the Fresh Prince. I’m at it again, only this time it’s to the tune of Babysitting Blues from Adventures in Babysitting. I don’t know how to articulate music sounds, so I made up my own – as you’ll see below.

Hi my name is DeAnna Anderson
Duh da da da (this is the guitar part)

I live in Cameroon, that’s in west central Africa
Duh da da da

One day while hanging out laundry my flip flop gave out
Nuh nuh nah (this is the piano part)

See I’ve been trying to make my clothes and shoes last until furlough
Duh da da da

But then my flip flop broke and now my foot’s falling out
Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum (this is the bass part)

I need furlough
It’s only a couple more weeks
I’ve got the clothing falling apart blues

A couple of month’s ago I discovered ants were eating my underwear
Duh da da da

One of my favorite shirts had a cockroach egg attach and made a tear
Duh da da da

My socks have lost all elasticity and my shoes are barely there
Duh da da da

I have bleach spots on most my clothes and I’m ashamed to wear them anywhere

I need furlough
It’s only a couple more weeks
I’ve got the clothing falling apart blues
I’ve got the clothing falling apart blues

David socks all have holes
Duh da da da

All our shirts pits are hard as rocks
Duh da da da

I can’t wait to buy new clothes
And use dryers to make them soft
I’ve got the clothing falling apart blues

broken flop

    You and your flip flop woes…remember the flip flop incident when you went bike riding in your younger years? Let’s go shopping when you get home!!! Love the shirt pits reference. You’re a great parody song writer/rapper!
