A TUMBLE DRYER IS NOT FOR ME







A TUMBLE DRYER IS NOT FOR ME



A tumble dryer is not for me
I like to hang my clothes you see,
I love to see them on the line
Even when the weather isn`t fine.



No matter the weather they always dry
It must be your garden my daughter will cry
I have to laugh but I know she is right
It`s just a fact much to my delight.



She asks `Will you dry some clothes for me`
This makes me as happy as can be,
I love it when it`s the children`s things
A delightful feeling this always brings.



Small pants and shirts and little vests,
These are my favourites I have confessed,
A line full of baby clothes is great to see
It always makes me feel so happy.



They`re put on the line with tender care
All the socks make a matching pair,
I colour code the pegs to match the clothes
The sun then shines and the wind blows.



So a tumble dryer is not for me
It doesn`t have the same appeal you see,
It dries the clothes okay that`s fine
But you can`t beat the old fashioned clothesline.
