The Lyrics

I work in the basement of a 70 yr old building. Most of the plumbing predates me. Once in a while we have issues. My sincerest apologies to the late great Patsy Cline
Pipes fall to pieces
In my workplace now and then.
Tripe smell displeases
Gut wagon buzzard upend.

Sewage backs up when something's gone amiss.
A clog round bend won't fit
Causing the seam to split.
Presently will we all be knee deep in it.
Up must wipe when pipes fall to pieces.

Pipes fall to pieces.
Maintainence is not to blame.
Wryly facetious
"Shit happens" is what they claim.

They tell me so old are the pipes above,
Any and all could spew
Putting us deep in doo
And each time we get slimed we spout language blue.
Fume,sulk, gripe when pipes fall to pieces.
It gets ripe when pipes fall to pieces.
