Devo Spice Put It Away 
There are a lot of things I love about being a parent. Getting my kids to clean is not among them. That usually results in me yelling at them to pick up individual toys, repeating myself, screaming, and repeating myself.

During one such screaming/cleaning match this song idea popped into my head, and I spent the rest of the cleaning session alternately yelling at them and giggling to myself.

All three of my kids appear on this song in the background doing some very convincing whining, yelling, and fighting. I'm hoping that now, for future cleaning sessions, I can just put this song on and play it at high volume rather than yelling at them to pick up their toys.

lyrics, vocals: Tom Rockwell
music: Jeff Dutton
background vocals: Lauren, Darren, and Jeremy
mixed and mastered by Jeff Dutton

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Did you ask your kids to screem in the background or did you just record them one day?

Awesome song. So glad to know we're not alone in our cleaning experiences.

No, they were willing participants.

Recording with the kids.

Since my wife and I don't have kids, I can't really identify with this. But it's a GREAT parody and it cracked me up!! And if someone walked into our house, they might think that we have 8 or 9 kids, based on the amount of cleaning up that is needed.

This is my wife's new anthem, but she's singing about me more than the kids. Fantastic song!
