The Lyrics

For anyone who tried to fix up their house and failed...
gonna fix my house, gonna make it nice,
won’t stand for leaks, bad paint or mice,
i’ll go to the home improvement store,
and buy myself, a new front door.

ain’t gonna live in a dump no more,
ain’t gonna live in a dump no more,
ain’t gonna live in a dump no more,
ain’t gonna live in a dump no more,

gonna paint my walls, make ‘em clean and bright,
make sure the paint has the lid on tight,
oh no! just tripped when i tried to reach,
and now my carpet’s pale peach.
i’ll light the room, with a chandelier,
dozens of lights, to give the room more cheer,
i’ll install it myself! i’m not some clown,
oh my god! i pulled the ceiling down.
the kitchen is, a horrid sight
new sink and counter will make things right,
the tv show that showed me how,
can’t explain why nothing lines up now.
my home’s for sale, at a bargain price,
it’s all fixed up, and looking nice,
as soon as i sell, it’s off i go,
to live in a maintenance-free condo
