Allegorical house

lyrics

I stumbled upon a little house
It was an allegorical house
There upon the door I saw a sign
It was my name on the door
No one was home
No one was home
So I broke in
Oh I broke in

Ooh I muck about trashing it up
And I jump for joy on the beds
Peeling all the paper from the walls
And smashing the windows
Not a care at all
Not a care at all
As I rifle the drawers
As I rifle the drawers

One long forever later I was hit
By a tidal wave of regret
Why did I defile a special place
That could have been my home?
Not cool at all
Not cool at all
Is it too late for me
Is it too late for me

To fix this place up
Give it all of my love
To fix this place up
Give it all of my love
To fix this place up
Give it all of my love

I'll paint the fence
Tend to the lawn
Clean out the nooks
Go to the shop
Scrub all the floors
Re-hinge the doors
If there was a bar
I'll raise it up

I stumbled upon a little house
It was an allegorical house
There upon the door I got a sign
I got my name on the door
Hung my dreams on the walls
Hung my dreams on the walls
I'm moving in
I'm moving in

I stumbled upon a little house
It was an allegorical house
There upon the door I got a sign
I got my name on the door
Hung my dreams on the walls
Hung my dreams on the walls
I'm moving in
I'm moving in
I'm moving in
I'm moving in
