The Lyrics

Wasn't there something I was supposed to do today? Shit! Gotta clean my apartment!
How the hell could I-I let this slip my mi-ind?
It's just the most vital day of the week
That's when my landlo-ord looks around my apartme-ent
To see if my place has been kept neat
Plain forgot, don't think I could get dumber
Better get all the cleanin' underwa-ay
Grab the mop and flamethro-ower and go-o to to-own
I-I ha-ate inspection day

So-o much crap around I've left o-o-on the-e ground
No time to sort it out into stacks
Just sweep it u-up no-ow, cover with a-a to-owel
Or put it all in cardboard boxes
So-ome collected, mo-ost gets to-ossed
Right out the window to be blo-own awa-ay
Cause I have no-o dou-oubt that my time might run ou-out
I-I'll fai-ail inspection day

Clea-ean all my shi-i-it, 'fore six o'clo-ock hi-i-its
I'm a la-azy schmoe-oe, but toda-a-ay
That stance wi-ill be a-reversing
Scrape the mould ri-ight o-o-o-off, toss that stroga-ano-o-off
Throw my pla-ans awa-ay, things to clear to-oday
Cause it's inspection day

Here it comes the deadli-ine, the landlord comes by-y
And he looks over what I have done
Can't read the notes he ma-akes, but I-I think they're grea-eat
Because he says "looks good here, Joe"
With my left forearm, I then wipe my sweat o-o-off
And thank him for his ti-ime toda-ay
Might just make a re-esolutio-ion
A-Abou-out inspection day

Ma-ake sure to clea-ea-ean way more freque-uently-y-y-y
And put e-ev'ry da-amn dish awa-a-ay
End my poi-ointless-ass panicking
Don't just put i-it o-o-o-off, clean around the-e clo-o-o-ock
Nah, I'll be-e oka-ay, kickin' round a-all day
Until inspection day
Think I'll be-e oka-a-ay until inspection da-a-ay

And he proceeds to learn NOT A DAMN THING. Just like your average sitcom character, then.

Entirely unintentional, Jonathan, Memorial Day's not a thing in Australia so I wasn't aware.
