The Lyrics

Happens every springtime, happens every falltime
Extension of ladder..from the shed, retreives
Putting on the yard gloves..nasty job of all time
Working on a roof edge..cleaning out the eaves

Cleaning out the eaves, cleaning out the eaves
There is no rejoicing..cleaning out the eaves
Cleaning out the eaves, sometimes, fight the heaves
From the stuff, I'm finding..cleaning out the eaves

Seeds and leaves of Maples, rusty nails and staples,
Fry bags from McDonald's..fishin' worms and fleas
Remnants of a birdnest..printed page from MapQuest
Krackerjacks, a toy thing..sticking in the eaves..

Cleaning out the eaves, cleaning out the eaves,
Small tree spouts and soiling, knitting needle weaves,
Cleaning out the eaves..ball cap, looks like Steve's
Crazy junk discovered..cleaning out the eaves

Pinch bugs, spiders creeping..Willow buds, still weeping
Fishing bobber, duct tape..pair of BVD's..
Bobby pins, used condoms..T shirt that says, "Bite Me!"
What a hairy harvest..cleaning out the eaves..

Cleaning out the eaves, how my spirit grieves
Western Union T-gram..and some old car keys
Cleaning out the eaves..half a can a' peas
Fin'lly find a dollar...cleaning out the eaves..

Fin'lly find a dollar...cleaning out the eaves

Always hated doing this - got some special gutters that keep leaves out. Now, if only I could figure out how to keep from raking the darn leaves, I could just watch football.

Conjurs up wonderful mental pictures of Americana it all it's glory...a rite of passage to be sure. We don't do eave-cleaning in the UK; mores the pity. 555

No wonder your mind's been in the gutter of late... Did you happen to find it, too, while you were up there? (hahahaha... no joke-- this was marvelous!)

Ugh, we had to clean the gutters yesterday, after cleaning the inside of our house. I swear my parents works the whole family like dogs! But I understand she works so hard all night with long hours as a nurse, so its harder on her than it is on us! Cleaning out 555 debris and leaves from the eaves!
