Liner Notes: 

I came late to the Nonet Challenge.

But here it is.

[EDIT] I don't know when the term "Dish Pig" came into being, but it's the basic insider name for the scullery maid/man throughout the Australian restaurant industry or what's left of it with COVID

Dishwasher. Loading the crockery,
Grotty and dripping forks and plates.
Dish Pig, that's what they call me.
It's a job. Pay's not great.
But if it's done wrong,
That's my one dread:
Poisoned food,

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Pretty essential job then! Succinct, packs a punch!

Not only is this tremendously funny it has also introduced me to a term that I had never heard before. Yet clearly when I had a summer job at the local Wimpy Bar back in my teenage years, I was clearly a dish pig.

Great response to the challenge, Tim - thank you!

Love this. The piano is so jaunty, the punchline is a kicker. Terrific.
