Lyrics

1
When I got home from work,
I wanted to go to bed,
But I wasn’t allowed to go 
I had to work instead. 

Chorus
There’s so many things we’d love to learn,
But we don’t know how,
We’ve got to buff these knives and forks,
It’s got to be done now. 

2
When we go to work each day,
It’s so very hot,
Even when we have a break,
We never eat a lot.

3
We dream of big posh houses,
And marrying Dukes or Earls,
But we don’t get what we want,
We’re simple Buffer Girls. 

4
We wear brown paper aprons,
To keep our dresses clean,
But the dust gets up our nose,
And makes us want to scream. 

5
Our hands are always dirty,
Our faces often black,
I’d love to leave this awful job
I never would come back!
