The Work Song (Cinderella)
Cinderella, Cinderella, All I hear is Cinderella
From the moment that I get up,
Till shades of night are falling
There isn’t any let up
I hear them calling calling
“Go up and do the attic and go down and do the cellar
You can do them both together, Cinderella!”
How lovely it would be If I could
Live my fantasy
But in the middle of my dreaming
They’re screaming at me
Night and day it's Cinderelly
Make the fire, fix the breakfast
Wash the dishes, do the mopping
And the sweeping and the dusting
They always keep her hopping
She goes around in circles
Till she's very, very dizzy
Still they holler
Keep a-busy Cinderelly!
We can do it, we can do it
We can help our Cinderelly
We can make her dress so pretty
There's nothing to it, really
We'll tie a sash around it
Put a ribbon through it
When dancing at the ball
She'll be more beautiful than all
In the lovely dress we'll make for Cinderelly
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Gonna help our Cinderelly
Got no time to dilly-dally
We gotta get a-goin'
I'll cut with these scissors!
And I can do the sewing!
Leave the sewing to the women
You go get some trimmin'
And we'll make a lovely dress for
