A Wifely Song

This is to the tune of Uncle Moishy's Jumping Song. I'm trying to find a link to the tune for those of you who don't know it, but it's eluding me. If anyone finds it, can you post it in a comment?

This is a washing song, a washing song, a washing song,
Washing, washing dishes, being careful as I do
This is a washing song, a washing song, a washing song
Washing, washing dishes until I am quite through

Chorus:
אשת חיל מי ימצא
Let’s go about our day with love
אשת חיל מי ימצא
And make our home one to be proud of

This is a sweeping song, a sweeping song, a sweeping song,
Sweeping, sweeping, sweeping all the dirt into one place
This is a sweeping song, a sweeping song, a sweeping song,
Sweeping, sweeping, sweeping until there is clean space

Chorus

This is a mopping song, a mopping song, a mopping song
Mopping, mopping, mopping slopping water all around
This is a mopping song, a mopping song, a mopping song
Mopping, mopping, mopping until no dirt is to be found

Chorus

This is a laundry song, a laundry song, a laundry song
Sorting, washing clothing so we have what to wear
This is a laundry song, a laundry song, a laundry song
Drying, folding clothing so we will not go bare (I’ll do it with flair)

Chorus

This is a supper song, a supper song, a supper song
Cooking, cooking supper so we’ll have what to eat
This is a supper song, a supper song, a supper song
Cooking, cooking supper so we can stay upbeat

Chorus

This is a Shabbos song, a Shabbos song, a Shabbos song
Cooking, cleaning, setting so we can greet the Shabbos queen
This is a Shabbos song, a Shabbos song, a Shabbos song
Cooking, cleaning, setting until everything’s pristine

Chorus

This is a wifely song, a wifely song, a wifely song
Smiling, laughing happily as we get it all done
This is a wifely song, a wifely song, a wifely song
Building a home for our families is our goal long-run

Chorus

Very cute... but I think I've got the wrong tune in my head. It's not the one about a boy from France who knows a simcha dance, is it?

Very cute Musing Maidel!

Malka, the song she's using goes:

This is a jumping song, a jumping song, a jumping song,
Jumping, jumping, jumping, til I feel that I am through...

Chorus:
Ivdu es Hashem b'simcha
Let's be filled with life and joy
Ivdu es Hashem b'simcha
Let's be happy Jewish girls and boys

Ha! And again ha! Thanks for the giggle.

Malka, I know the song you mean too; Uncle Moishy now has at least three jumping songs that I know of. My youngest is currently into this one, as was my oldest. It's a fun way to tire them out.

Which is pretty appropriate for this version you've created for us, MM.

no offense to you, especially because i know you meant it to be cute...but this post made me cringe...i'm not a big fan of any of those "wifely" things, and aishes chayil is my least favorite song of all time...

@colloquiallyspeaking - I don't really like doing those tasks either. I was actually just trying to give myself something to sing while I was doing them to make them more palatable. It works a little bit, but I still don't look forward to doing them.
