The Lyrics

My room isn't quite this messy.
I was out dating, paid for both entrees
Dinner was lovely, but she wouldn’t stay
Because my floor
Is full of supermarket receipts
And wrappers for eaten sweets
All of this seems appalling,
Awful to her

My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
If it were filled then that would be a good start
My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
But it’s empty just like the hole in my heart

Can’t sit on the sofa, there’s several months of mail
Much too much to fit in the bin, this is beyond the pail
I stubbed my toe
Since I just didn’t see the chair
The folding one buried there
And now I fear I’ll fall and,
Fall and get hurt

My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
Filling the bin will barely make a real dent
My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
But at this point I think I need a trash tent

My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
I should begin to use it, throw things away
My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
I’ll circle back to that objective one day

I don’t like cleaning, in case you couldn’t tell
It’s so much more mess than I’d like, so I’m thinking oh well
I guess I’ll go
Dedicate an afternoon or nine
To get this closer to fine
Because this seems appalling
Falling here hurts

My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
I’ll fill the bin and put the trash in a bag
My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can
I’ll do it soon, so soon you don’t need to nag
My bedroom has a cylindrical trash can…
