The Lyrics

The cost of living in California is outrageous. Homes are the worst. I only hope I can afford a home when I have a good job.
Oh give me a home where the buyer's not boned
Where I don't pay a fortune to stay
Where cash that I earned buys Me more than a turd
And the roof doesn't leak any day

Home, home in my range
Where I don't pay a fortune to stay
Where cash that I earned buys me more than a turd
And the roof doesn't leak any day

Oh give me a loan to buy my new home
Though it's only a tenth of the debt
And over the rise I can open my eyes
To the most expensive homes yet

Home, home in my range
Where I don't pay a fortune to stay
Where cash that I earned buys me more than a turd
And the roof doesn't leak any day

Oh give me a state where living cost rate
Doesn't climb like the Apollo 12
Where bankers unheard don't get mad and unfurled
When they don't make a pile for themselves

Home, home in my range
Where I don't pay a fortune to stay
Where cash that I earned buys me more than a turd
And the roof doesn't leak any day

(H) I liked the Apollo 12 line, but I think the repetition of some lines detracts from it somewhat, Scathe

(ABC) Great song!

Humorous parody, Scathe. You know what they say, it's all about inflation, inflation, inflation!
Arwen - July 05, 2005 - Report this comment
ABC--I never thought I could enjoy a parody so much that repeatedly used the word "turd," but, alas, you have proven me wrong, Scathe. This was great!

Very clever sub and continuously clever and funny subs throughout, Scathe. It's good to have dreams, but your property taxes probably won't support them. Very good and funny stuff. Not sure why, but it reminds me of one of Garfield's 'life' metaphors:
"Life is like a Ferrari: It goes too fast, but that doesn't matter because you can't afford it anyway."

Well done...almost as bad over here on the east coast, but not quite.
