We always looked forward to Saturday
Because there was no school
We thought we'd have two days to play
But Mother was no fool

After breakfast, the kitchen was cleaned
Any bugs there, we sure got 'em
Scrubbing, mopping and waxing
Cleanest house in Johnson Bottom

Then we moved from room to room
Repeating the same old thing
'Till everything was sparkling clean
Be it fall, summer, winter or spring

Mother took us girls out one by one
Into the old wash house
Picking and combing for hours
As our poor heads got deloused

In the afternoon, when the work was done
Television was the prime
Western Theater and Superman
Then Howdy Doody Time

Supper on Saturday was a treat
Hot dogs set us to squealing
The smell of coffee filled the air
Its aroma so appealing

With fondness, I remember then
It's in my mind to stay
When our family worked together for
Our Johnson Bottom Saturday
