The Lyrics

You ever had a neighbor you just wish wouldn't fix things himself?
I Said You wanna be breaking something
We can't ever take you out there
Because you always knocking stuff over
You break it you buy it out here

You broke your new suit case (Yeah, Yeah)
And your Neon's old brakes (Yeah, Yeah)
You've cracked all your dentures (Yeah, Yeah)
And you've got twelve fractures (Yeah, Yeah)

You've ripped all your clothing (Yeah, Yeah)
Your stomach is bloating (Yeah, Yeah)
Pool leaks a little (Yeah, Yeah)
And your plates are brittle (Yeah, Yeah)

I thought perhaps it's bad luck
Knocked things over, with a big ol' butt
When you stood up on your feet
Your couch seems ripped right apart

Microwave is frying
Car is always dyin'
breakin', dropping', stompin'
Sayin' You always just be breakin' somethin'

I Said You wanna be breaking something
You always be breaking something
and now your dell is over-loading
Your hard-drive has started smoking

It's too hard to live near you (Yeah, Yeah)
You have stock in Ace Glue (Yeah, Yeah)
Duck tapes on your window (Yeah, Yeah)
Sat on Nintendo (Yeah, Yeah)

Your cat's always screaming (Yeah, Yeah)
She's stuck in the ceiling (Yeah, Yeah)
You borrowed my hammer (Yeah, Yeah)
now it won't hang banners (Yeah, Yeah)

Your knowledge of repair's no good
So please don't lift your car hood
and I really am not a hater
But your yard is a disaster

Think your house is falling
and then I see your crawling
Dangerous, Smoking, Tumblin'
You've got the whole town running

I Said You Wanna Be Breaking Something
You always be breaking something
You said it's not your fault stuffs breaking
You say the grounds been shaking

Can't blame it on thunder (Yeah, Yeah)
This all was your blunder (Yeah, Yeah)
You're right in the middle (Yeah, Yeah)
and you made us shudder (Yeah, Yeah)

You can't deny your actions (Yeah, Yeah)
Are a news van attraction (Yeah, Yeah)
House split just a little (Yeah, Yeah)
And we're all reacting (Yeah, Yeah)

***Following Lines are Echoed once***
You're an animal
You're an animal
Still live by you
You're an animal
You're up real late
Blowing up plates
I'm scared of you
***End Echoed Lines**
You're an animal

We hear all your glasses breakin
Every time we are awaken
Spend all day inside Home Depot
Even broke a bag of Fritos

Still you sit there tryin
to fix rather than buying
Cheap Skate, Doors you're prying
Sayin' You Just Wanna Be Breakin' Something

I Said Still gonna be breakin' something
Why are you still breakin' something
I think you need to just hire someone
Why won't you just hire someone

You just cannot fix it (Yeah, Yeah)
Instead further break it (Yeah, Yeah)
It was broke a little (Yeah, Yeah)
but now it's fully split (Yeah, Yeah)

Pride's hard to get over (Yeah, Yeah)
So instead you'll look dumber (Yeah, Yeah)
You think you can fix things (Yeah, Yeah)
And you aren't a plumber (Yeah, Yeah)

***Following Lines are Echoed once***
You're An idiot
You're A damn moron
Still they mock you
You're An idiot
You're just a big flake
You're An idiot
They get laughs from you
***End Echoed Lines**
Till ya explode the place



Oh S**T . . BOOM!

If you can't fix it Frankie (Yeah, Yeah)
Then don't fix it Frankie (Yeah, Yeah)
Call someone maybe (Yeah, Yeah)
If You Can't fix it Frankie (Yeah, Yeah)

See your ceiling crumblin
Your house is kinda slumming
Dipping, breaking, cracking
Your house will soon be falling

I Said You're gonna be breaking something
You always be breaking something
I said I hear your car always stallin'
and your filter has no suction

You've destroyed your Lawn Mower (Yeah, Yeah)
Can't borrow mine no more(Yeah, Yeah)
You stepped on a whistle (Yeah, Yeah)
Even broke your car door (Yeah, Yeah)

You 'fridge won't get colder (Yeah, Yeah)
You say "cause it's older" (Yeah, Yeah)
You won't spend a little (Yeah, Yeah)
Instead break your shoulders (Yeah, Yeah)

Lift your wrench up high
Like you can fix the world
This is no longer fun
Hear sirens and I curl

I hear a really loud ow
and see lights flashing blue
Yes, I'm begging you please
Do not fix it you stooge.

Do not fix it
Owie oo,
Owie ouch, you hurt yourself
Owie oo,
Owie ouch, you hurt yourself (to outro)

Ha-ha, Dave, Ha-ha-ha, what a great fun song, Aggy say 555, what a great fun song...

That was AWESOME!!! 5s. but with the way the title was written I thought you were saying the song Wannabe by the Spice Girls was making you want to break something LOL

Mr B.A.D. this is just too cool ! It wobbles & cabos, ~Muy Caliente~ , Hombre !! . . . Loved the line: "Stock in ACE Glue" and pool jokes are always welcome, Sir !

Thank you very much Agri, Jack and LL-Management ;) Fun to write also--most certainly!

You can't cook, and everything you own you break.... Man, I feel sorry for your roommate.
Below Average Dave - May 21, 2008 - Report this comment
Well, sometimes if you combine the two you can call it art (My bad cooking has given me so many great parody ideas, thus it has served me great purpose:)) Oh, and congrats on your two entries into this week's Badave Top 20. More and more artists are joining that site with recordings, so it's getting harder to get on the chart, so it's more of an accomplishment each time it happens.

(SOTM) I think I said it elsewhere that you really seem to shine on really hard tunes.
Jason - June 10, 2008 - Report this comment
(S.O.T.M.) Fragile this parody certainly isn't. Well done.
Matthias - June 10, 2008 - Report this comment
Wow.... I can't believe I submitted this beast into the Epic 40, and soon I'll have to parody it. I think we really under rated this one Dave, because even if you have a very solid idea it's going to take a hell of a lot of thinking to fill up all that repetition, and still make it funny. You excelled at this song, and I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't another Gold SOTM for you.
Gianni Parmesiani - June 12, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I echo the wow, but more because you "old timers" have the tenacity to take on such long original songs. I got tired following though this, but enjoyed the ride. Haven't we all broken something along the way? Rules? Bones? Whatever?
Below Average Dave - June 12, 2008 - Report this comment
You think this is long, you should see the ones of Desolation Row Gianni:) I think that's the first time I've been referred to as an old timer among AmIRight, I remember like yesterday when I was brand new, thanks for the comment; and Matty: thanks a lot, that is pretty epic praise.

Itcould've been worse, you could be Jackie Chan at the end of the first Police Story film
Guy - June 28, 2008 - Report this comment

The last thing you want to say to this guy is "gimme a break". May be famous last words. HA HA. This one took imagination and some work, it is so evident. I like it.
bobpiecheese - June 29, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Didn't see THAT one coming from the title. Still, you nailed this one, this should get high points for sure! $555 in repairs!
Peter Andersson - June 29, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM - This was great. Not the kind of guy you'd want as a neighbout, unless you're in jail, then you could tag along when he's to break out for sure...
Red Ant - June 29, 2008 - Report this comment
First off, great call on not trying to do the minute's worth of outro vocals. You did far more with the OS and topic than I would have. Pretty solid write: I can't wait for the recording. 5s
Phil Alexander - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Never could stand the OS (like most MJ songs, I have to admit).. this one reminded me of "Leopold Alcocks" by Jack Thackray - that's high praise, as you'll find out if you can track it down. Final verse:

Leopold Alcocks, my distant relation
Has finally gone after his visitation
I glimpsed waving bye-bye this last minute
Waving his hand with my door-knob still in it
Jeff Reuben - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Wow, I never realized this song was that long until reading this! Brilliant idea for the song. Lots of great lines.
Invisible Boy - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
I live next door to this guy. Great job Dave. You took on this monster of an OS and you...Beat It.

This song is my Dad right to the last line....Fantastic work, had me in tears due to the similarities. Well done.
Dr Music - October 01, 2008 - Report this comment
I love this song. The person you describe it Dave kind of reminds me of Billy from the Grim Adventures And Mandy and also a little bit of Mr Bean. It's like that old saying "like a bull in a china shop".
Glen S - November 21, 2008 - Report this comment
Indeed well done. In hindsight, some onomatopeas would have complemented this one well, but hindsight is 20/20. Thanks for leading the way, and doing an excellent job in the process.
