John FarnhamSadie (The Cleaning Lady)

Sadie , the cleaning lady With trusty scrubbing brush and pail of water Worked her fingers to the bone For the life she had at home Providing at the same time for her daughter CHORUS: Ah Sadie , the cleaning lady Her aching knees not getting any younger Well her red detergent hands Had for years not held a man's And time would find her heart expired of hunger Scrub your floors , do your chores , dear old Sadie Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady Can't afford to get bored , dear old Sadie Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady Ah , Sadie , the cleaning lady Her female mind would find a way of trapping Though as gentle as a lamb , Sam the elevator man So she could spend the night by TV napping CHORUS Ah , Sadie , the cleaning lady Her Sam was what she got hook , line and sinker To her sorrow and dismay She's still working to this day Her Sam turned out to be a no-good stinker CHORUS from: Scrub your floors , do your chores etc
