The Lyrics

Ever had to deal with a bad roommate?
My roommate Joe makes a mess
Eats all my food too
He barely pays the rent
And he likes to snooze!

Farts and eats, smelly feet
Breath is bad, which is sad, gonna lose a tooth
Yes, Joe makes me feel
That he's breaking our deal
This place is run like a zoo!

Joe's a burden
For the bathroom, must stand in line
Joe's a burden
In the Unemployment line
Is never on time

He nevers cleans the bath tub
Toilet- I'm aghast
I honestly don't know what to do
This arrangement can't last

Joe whines and is unkind
BO strong, and always sick as a dog
I want to throw him out
Hell yes, I want to shout
If the truth be told...


Oh, Oh, Oh
He makes me soooo mad!

Blows my mind, unrefined
Yet this lease will expire in time
Joe has no appeal
And no working zeal
Still, he bums lots of rides!

To the liquor store, to the pool hall...


Joe's a burden, oh yeah
Joe's a burden
Such a pitiful sight
And he's not debt-free, collectors calling, and he's leeching off of me!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
It's crazy!
Gonna ditch him in a heartbeat
So stressed, can't unwind
But I don't want to be unkind

30 Day Notice, pal...
