The Lyrics

Thanks be to Jonathan for helping me with my first parody!
It won't pass a safety test
Boarded up and filled with nests
Gives the children bad nightmares
Wood is broken damage complete
Why won't they tear down this beast
Cause it's still around

Old house, is crumbling up the street
Old house is nowhere near complete

Old house where cats meow
All the windows keep on breaking
And all the lighting is shut down
At night it makes creepy sounds
A foul odor there is found
On Halloween it draws a crowd

Old house, is crumbling up the street
Old house is nowhere near complete

Our house, is crumbling up the street
(Eyesore tells you)
(That you've got to get away from it)
Old house, will never be complete

Yeah, it needs a lot of work
Plumbing, lighting, paint- the works
I only wish I had some tools
Some materials to work with
Might find a way to get it fixed
But I'm still afraid...

Old house, is crumbling up the street
Old house is nowhere near complete

I remember way back when
It was owned by the Hendersons
We would have such a very good time
Yard was fine
Inside, divine
And I remember how we'd play
On the winding stairway
How we played
But the family moved away
No one bought it to this day

The weather ruined all the rest
Bet it's filled with tons of rats
In a state of unrepair
Looks like a rotting heap
No one there to do upkeep
Condemnation bound

Old house, is crumbling up the street
Old house, will never be complete
Old house, just have to face defeat
Old house, yeah, the place, it reeks
Old house, needs a mop and a sweep
Old house, needs landscaping and new trees
Old house, needs remodeled and upkeep
Old house, looks like where Freddie Krueger sleeps!
