Lyrics[]

Marita:
Flavio, Flavio, Flavio!
Flavio:
Marita, Marita, Marita!
Flavio and Marita:
What shall we do?
What will become of us two?
The help is gone!
The maid is through!
What will become of us two?
Marita:
I'm calling up the agency to find a new housekeeper
Flavio:
She's calling up the agency to find a new housekeeper
Marita:
A chambermaid, a gourmet chef, a trendy carpet sweeper
Flavio:
A chambermaid, a gourmet chef, a trendy carpet sweeper
Marita:
Why are you repeating everything that I am singing?
Flavio:
Why am I repeating everything that you...
I do not know.
(man humming in tune)
Marita:
Hello, hello? Marita Hippo here
I'm having an emergency
My life is filled with urgency
We need to hire a servant, see!
We need a new housekeeper
(man humming in tune)
Marita:
But- but-
Oh, very well.
Flavio and Marita:
What shall we do?
What will become of us two?
Flavio:
I'll do the windows and push the vacuum
Polish the parlor, scrub out the bathroom
Oh, this is hard.
Marita:
I will not worry, I will not fear
I'll do laundry until help is here
Fold the towels and starch the shirts
And I'll do laundry until it hurts
Ay! This is really not so amusing...
Flavio:
Dinner is easy, simple like a dream
Cleaning the chicken, scrubbing the beans
Add-a two tablespoons into a pot
Stir fry until hot
Perhaps next time we take out Chinese...
Birds:
Poor little hippos, husband and wife
They haven't a clue, they haven't a life
A tragic conclusion, see how they cry
Poor hippopotami
Flavio and Marita:
What shall we do?
What will become of me and you?

(the house crashes)

Flavio:
We realize we've been wrong
We've treated you unfair
How can we make it up and show you how we care?
Flavio and Marita:
Come clean for us, come clean for us
Come back and clean for us
We'll give you anything you ask
Just say you'll clean for us!
She'll clean for us, she'll clean for us
She said she really will!
A happy ending, everyone!
She said she'll clean for us!
