OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Sadie the cleaning lady
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady

Allemande in the alamo style, balance out and in
Swing thru, go forward two and swing thru again
A grand right & left, go walkin' round the ring
Swing your Sadie round and promenade her
Can't afford to get bored dear old Sadie
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands and go
Find the corner lady, dosado her
Swing thru and then boys trade and boys run
Couples circulate, chain down the line
Pass the ocean here and recycle
Swing that corner girl and promenade her
Scrub your floors, do your chores dear old Sadie
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady

Sadie, The Cleaning Lady
 
 

Sadie, the cleaning lady
With trusty scrubbing brush and pail of water
Worked her fingers to the bone, for the life she had at home
Providing at the same time for her daughter

Ahh Sadie, the cleaning lady
Her aching knees not getting any younger
Well her red detergent hands, have for years not held a man's
And time would find her heart expired of hunger

Scrub your floors, do your chores, dear old Sadie
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady
Can't afford to get bored dear old Sadie
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady

Ahh Sadie, the cleaning la-ady
Her female mind would find a way of trapping
Though as gentle as a lamb, Sam the elevator man
So she could spend the night by TV, napping

Ahh Sadie, the cleaning lady
Her aching knees not getting any younger
Well her red detergent hands, have for years not held a man's
And time would find her heart expired of hunger

Ahh, scrub your floors, do your chores, dear old Sadie
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady
Can't afford to get bored dear old Sadie
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady

Ahh Sadie, the cleaning lady
Her Sam was what she got, hook, line and sinker
To her sorrow and dismay, she's still working to this day
Her Sam turned out to be a nervous figure

Ahh, scrub your floors, do your chores, dear old Sadie
Looks as though you'll always be a cleaning lady
Can't afford to get bored dear old Sadie

Lyrics by Raymond Gilmore, David White, and John Ernest Madara.
Recorded by John Farnham.
