lyrics

I was washing some pots and pans
I was washing em with me hands
But me hands were getting slightly wrinkly
And me fingers were a little crinkly

So I walked across the floor
And I looked inside a drawer
And I took out a pair of gloves
And I stuck em on me hands over me cuffs

I was scrubbing away
It was the 27th of May
But I scrubbed too hard if truth be told
Cos the thumb just came off my left marigold

Well the water started seeping in
To the inside of the glove within
And the water weighed me fingers down
And the whole thing made me wear a frown

Well I took off me broken glove
And I showed it to my beloved
And she looked at me in a way
That it would be rude of me to say

I was scrubbing away
It was the 27th of May
But I scrubbed too hard if truth be told
Cos the thumb just came off my left marigold

I was scrubbing away - scrubety scrubety scrub
It was the 27th of May - Mayety Mayety May
But I scrubbed too hard if truth be told
Cos the thumb just came off my left marigold

Oh I scrubbed too hard if truth be told
Cos the thumb just came off my left marigold
