The Lyrics

Sometimes someone's taste in interior decorating flat-out sucks.
Place looks tacky, I-I'm surprised that I'm the first to tell you
Don't you remember all the-e ti-imes I've said this isn't cool?
"It's unique" Same old excu-use
And one that you've overu-used
No, tacky is what I would ca-all your deco-o-or
The stripe patterns are a-a joke
With all the colours of the rai-ainbow
And the worst part: neon, makes my-y eyes hurt

The mishmash of styles arou-ound this place, tryna hide your age?
Ancient mahogany ta-able contrasted with plastic?
There's bein' all "nu-retro"
This is takin' the piss, you know
So tacky's still what I would ca-all your crap deco-o-or
You flank the grand pia-ano
With green lava lamp pillars? He-ell no
It's plain weird, not in a cool way, you should cu-ut it out

Don't pull that "remodel" stuff with me, I know it's crap
You'll just end up with another butt-ugly fixer-upper, so hear me-e out
No-o more paintin' the floor red
Cause it's a carpet, you great du-underhead
Yeah, tacky's all that I can ca-all your deco-o-or
Not all your lights should be-e strobe
Don't put in stairs, you've got one floo-oor, dope
You silly arse, your architect degree-ee's a-a lie

Just pick a new house out of a book, I'll lend you cash, it's cool
But promise me that you won't pull this whole bullshit again, you fool
Don't touch that place in any way, ma-an
Apa-art from clea-eanin' cra-ap
Your tacky-ass habits need to go awa-a-ay
May be "modern" to you, but to me?
It's the ugliest thing that I-I'll see
Don't be a-an arse, let the art deco-or stuff stay

Tacky's you-our whole thing, that would be okay
But I li-ive here too-oo-oo, might go insa-a-a-ane

I was originally gonna make this about tacky taste in clothes, but I did a parody like that fairly recently. If it'd been a year ago, like the last parody I did about terrible home design, then I would've been fine.
