Murky Dishwater Song (From the Bright Report)

Murky Dishwater

The Bright Report’s music journalist, Arden Stanswabble, wrote a feature on the Rock World’s newest voices, Murky Dishwater. This garage band have taken the airways by storm with hits like Spincycle and Asparagus. Despite their songs may be banned in most countries, the band has only grown in popularity.

According to some, Murky Dishwater songs are cursed. Cursed how? Well, you’d have to read the full story to find out.

By popular demand, here is one of their songs. Warning: the songs are safe when presented in written form like this, but please proceed with caution. Perhaps don’t sing it out loud or – worse – put it to music.

‘Milk In First’ by Murky Dishwater

 
 
 
 There’s a sleepy doggie on my pillow,
 There’s a sleepy little dog on my pillow.
 Night is quite gone, and time’s gone by
 And it looks like get-up o’clock and I sigh:
  
 Oh, the milk’s in first,
 The milk’s in first!
 Can’t drink ye’ tea,
 With the tea in first.
  
 The sun’s gone up in the sky,
 The night gave up and said bye.
 Can’t start your day with off-yellow,
 What’s the point my dear fellow.
 Because:
  
 Oh, the milk’s in first,
 The milk’s in first!
 Can’t drink ye’ tea,
 With the tea in first.
 [Guitar solo]
  
 There’s a sleepy doggie on my pillow,
 (Sleepy doggie – sleepy doggie – such a sleepy doggy)
 There’s a sleepy little dog on my pillow.
 Night is quite gone, and time’s gone by
 And it looks like get-up o’clock and I sigh:
  
 Oh, the milk’s in first,
 The milk’s in first!
 Can’t drink ye’ tea,
 With the tea in first.
  
 Now don’t be a barbarian,
 Or you’ll seem vegetarian.
 Put the milk in first,
 Or you’ll be the worst.
 Because:
  
 You can’t drink ye’ tea
 [Drum roll]
 With the tea in first!
