The Lyrics

Potpourri explosion
Lots and lots to clean
I can't just bring a hose in
That might ruin the floor's sheen

Potpourri explosion
Flowers on the wall
I have part of a rose in
My eye - not good at all

We don't play with matches
That's what I often say
The next time that I catch this
Type of stunt I will make you pay

Potpourri explosion
Shavings in my soup
Got negative emotions
Might take days to regroup

(Unintelligible grumbling builds up into a cathartic scream)

Potpourri explosion
Should've put away
The flammable ammonia
After I cleaned today

And what's more, you ruined one
Of my most treasured bowls
With all that has been strewn, son
To clean should be among your goals

Potpourri explosion
And I'll clean the rugs
As long as you're not smoking
Illegal, deadly drugs

(More grumbling)
