"Watching the Clothes" as written by and Chrissie Hynde....
Oh, Saturday night
Mmm, everyone's having fun
I'm down at the laundromat
Trying to get my washing done
Like I done before
Time and time again
Watching the clothes go 'round
Another week sees its end

Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round

Oh, I've been working hard
Mmm, trying to make some money
"would you like sour cream
On your potato, honey?"
I been kissing ass
Trying to keep it clean
Serving the middle class
Yeah, it's a clean routine

Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round

There go the whites
Mmm, getting whiter
There go the colors
Getting brighter
There go the dedicates
Through the final rinse
There goes my Saturday night
I go without a fight

Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round
Watching the clothes go 'round

    General CommentI heard an interview with Miss Hynde where she discussed her initial fame. She described it like this: I have a Top 10 song, Brass in Pocket, I'm booked to play Top of the Pops, and I find out my roommate just died. I took his clothes to the laundry that night. That's what I remember about my week of being famous.

    I came here to see if there was a connection in the lyrics. Probably not.
