JustForPun and ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Doing work to the tune of music. Disney musicals love this one: "Whistle While You Work" practically defines it. Could go all the way back to using drums to synchronize rowers in galleys, depending on your definition of music.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' features a few examples. [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E11WinterWrapUp "Winter Wrap-Up"]] has the eponymous song, with an instrumental version of said song playing as the Ponyvillers finally get organized with Twilight Sparkle's help. [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E9AppleFamilyReunion "Apple Family Reunion"]] has the song "Raise This Barn", which Applejack and her family sing as they work together to rebuilt the wrecked barn at Sweet Apple Acres. Also, whilst it's her profession not housework Rarity's Song "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E14SuitedForSuccess Art of the Dress (Stitch by Stitch)]]" is very much as case of this, especially the reprise section as she isn't enjoying it at that point as the other ponies are so demanding, and have a much poorer sense of design.

* The first song in ''TheBraveLittleToaster'' is all about cleaning the cottage. (Though it's not totally part of this trope since they're simply cleaning the cottage to Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti")

* "Brazzle Dazzle Day" in ''Disney/PetesDragon'' isn't about the chore of whitewashing the lighthouse, but that's what they're doing as they start singing, and the dance break of sorts is based around characters breathing on the windows so the other characters can clean them.
