I woke up this morning, I had slept on the floor,
I opened one eye, there were beer cans galore;
My head, oh, she pounded, my whole body shook,
Well I nearly got sick when I got up to look,
At the burns on the canvas, the stains on the mat,
Sure, there wasn't a window where one should be at;
There was beer in the dish that was left for the cat,
But oh, what a wonderful time.

So you grab the dustpan and I'll grab the mop,
And you clean the bottom while I clean the top;
Oh, break out the Lestoil and tear up a rag,
To clean up after the time.

I went to the kitchen to grab me a drink,
There were glasses all rottin', heaped up in the sink;
There was half bowls of moose soup all strewn 'round the place,
And sure, half-eaten cold plates took up all the space.
There was unopened homebrew still left from the tear,
Three odd pairs of shoes left, some strange underwear;
An accordion still smoking, a part in the chair,
But oh, what a wonderful time.

So you grab the dustpan and I'll grab the mop,
And you clean the bottom while I clean the top;
Oh, break out the Lestoil and tear up a rag,
To clean up after the time.

Then I went to the bathroom to grab me a scrub,
We were all out of arse wipe, still beer in the tub;
Now the toilet was plugged up and filled to the rim,
And sure, bluebottle flies were lined up for a swim.
Well the mirror was broken, the shower curtain tore,
I don't think 'twas water that wetted the floor;
Well some inpatient knocker left holes in the door,
But oh, what a wonderful time.

So you grab the dustpan and I'll grab the mop,
And you clean the bottom while I clean the top;
Oh, break out the Lestoil and tear up a rag,
To clean up after the time.

So you grab the dustpan and I'll grab the mop,
And you clean the bottom while I clean the top;
Oh, break out the Lestoil and tear up a rag,
To clean up after....
To clean up after the time.

Intro: [G] [C] [G] [D] [G] [G] [C] [G] [Em] [D] [G]

I [G] woke up this morning, I had slept on the floor,
I [C] opened one [G] eye, there were [Em] beer cans [D] galore;
My [G] head, oh, she pounded, my whole body shook,
Well I [C] nearly got [G] sick when I [Em] got up to [D] look,
At the [C] burns on the canvas, the stains on the [G] mat,
Sure, there [Em] wasn't a window where one should [D] be at;
There was [G] beer in the dish that was [C] left for the [G] cat,
But [C] oh, what a [D] wonderful [G] time.

Chorus:
So [G] you grab the dustpan and [C] I'll grab the [G] mop,
And [D] you clean the bottom while [G] I clean the top;
Oh, [G] break out the [C] Lestoil and [G] tear up a [Em] rag,
To [D] clean up after the [G] time.

I [G] went to the kitchen to [C] grab me a [G] drink,
There were [D] glasses all rottin', heaped [G] up in the sink;
There was [G] half bowls of moose-soup all [C] strew 'round the [G] place,
And sure, [Em] half-eaten cold plates took up all the [D] space.
There was [C] unopened homebrew still left from the [G] tear,
Three [Em] odd pairs of shoes left, some strange [D] underwear;
An [G] accordion still smoking, [C] a part in the [G] chair,
But [C] oh, what a [D] wonderful [G] time.

Chorus:
So [G] you grab the dustpan and [C] I'll grab the [G] mop,
And [D] you clean the bottom while [G] I clean the top;
Oh, [G] break out the [C] Lestoil and [G] tear up a [Em] rag,
To [D] clean up after the [G] time.

Then I [G] went to the bathroom to [C] grab me a [G] scrub,
We were [D] all out of arse wipe, still [G] beer in the tub;
Now the [G] toilet was plugged up and [C] filled to the [G] rim,
And sure [Em] blue bottle flies were lined up for a [D] swim.
Well the [C] mirror was broken, the shower curtain [G] tore,
I [Em] don't think 'twas water that wetted the [D] floor;
Well some [G] unpatient knocker left [C] holes in the [G] door,
But [C] oh, what a [D] wonderful [G] time.

Chorus:
So [G] you grab the dustpan and [C] I'll grab the [G] mop,
And [D] you clean the bottom while [G] I clean the top;
Oh, [G] break out the [C] Lestoil and [G] tear up a [Em] rag,
To [D] clean up after....
To [D] clean up after the [G] time.
