The Lyrics

The only thing worse than the obnoxious representative of the local Home Owner's Association is the obnoxious representative of the local Home Owner's Association that only exists in their head.
I fin'lly have a house of my own
The only rules I have to follow are mine
Well, until you appeared to make it known
That I need to keep my garden real short in height
And I would obey except you have zero sway
Don't you see that I don't need you right now?

Just a lawn, no fancy plants to overgrow, it's true
Just a lawn, no massive trees to block anybody's view
Just a lawn, just grass I need to sheer and that's what I'd do anyway
So now I must say: piss off, you

If I had known 'bout you before
I decided to move here, I would refuse
'Cause you will not get off of my front porch
Still demanding I do the dumb things you want me to
You won't walk away, offended at my display
Have you even looked around you right now?

Just a lawn, no secret holdings of home-grown produce
It's just a lawn, your giant list applies to jack-all, it's true
It's just a lawn, some grass I'm gonna sheer when I have spare time in the day
Is that not okay? No? Screw you

All this H.O.A bother, don't think the neighbours
Comply either, yeah-ee-yeah-eah
Because I see a mob of them start to approach, rollin' eyes before they all pull out their phones
Think you'd better leave, no manager with which to speak, yeah-eah-eah

Just a lawn, I haven't parked my car upon it, true
It's just a lawn, don't even know if it's real grass, got no clue
It's just a lawn, pre-emptively came here, had no time to wreck my landscape
Your life must be lame, pity you, mmm-mmm-mmm

Man, this song came right after "Girlfriend"? Talk about whiplash.
