lyrics

Separate the darks
Pull apart the whites
Lucky if the others
Ever come out bright
A box of all safe colors
a strip of fabric softener
It's laundry day again
without her

Waiting at the coin-op
Spin cycle hasn't spun
Married With Children on the TV
Forever in re-run
If I had a quarter
For every time she said "we're done."
I'd have fifty cents

The lint is tumbilng
Static clings to the air
An abandoned sock in Drier 6
It's always hard to keep them paired
And though I might regret it
I leave all she left right there

She smiles as I fold
People here don't often speak
They come here with their own troubles
I see them every other week
No laundry day's not for winners
but for those of us who've lost
The mismatched, the resistant
the pre-shrunk and the stretched out
the worn out the wrinkled
and the lost
