about

This song didn't make the album but I still find it pretty fun so wanted her out.

lyrics

[Bridge] x 2
I bought a lovely house down in funky town /
But only stuck around a month cos it was fucking loud /

[Verse 1]
I wouldn’t mind a place to live near a dentist and newsagent /
So I can read the newspaper whenever my tooth’s aching /
It’s just practical plus I can have it rolled up /
And hit the doc for charging 400 for Panadol /

I told my real estate I want something affordable /
Is sorta new, has a water view and a sauna too /
With a place around the corner I can order food /
And somewhere warm so I don’t fucking slip on the morning dew /

I gotta pet gorilla and I’ve kept him in a /
Big dusty crate and he just sits there all day /
And whenever I let him out he just rips up the place /
So make sure its friendly for pets that are 6’ fucking 8” /

And I plan to make it big in music, I’m certain to make it /
But if I don’t I could work in an apron, serving or baking /
Cursing and hating cos I barely earn the repayments /
But if I make it I’ll be chirpy and gracious /

When she said it might be hard to find the perfect location /
I replied “you’ll be right love, I’m sure that you’ll find one” /
Cos if you don’t I’ll probably run you down in a hire truck /
And read in the paper at the dentist that you died young /

[Chorus x 2]
Cos every little thing that goes around ya /
It always comes around /
It always comes around /
Which means I’ma get mine /

[Bridge x 2]

[Verse 2]
I almost bought a place to live where there was nowhere to eat for miles /
And my next-door neighbor was a fucking pedophile /
I wasn’t into the way he’d like to treat a child /
Still I was tempted cos the bathroom had heated tiles /

Apparently Parliament House wasn’t for rent /
I had a quick chat to the PM then got me some head /
Then we jumped into bed and she showed me what her mother gave her /
Making Julia Gillard cum now that was fucking labor /

She asked me for some advice that would stun the people /
I said keep guns illegal but make gunja legal /
Whop, I got a little side tracked, my bad /
Back to the search for a nice pad /

It got me thinking of the days where I finally get a house /
Think of all the things I can do when I settle down /
I might start a rumor that I mastered tuba /
And then spread that people who aren’t into brass are losers /

I might find a cow paddock that is suitable /
Bring a fucking tuxedo along and try to suit a bull /
And I need a place that I could put my pot plants /
I also need a place that I could put my pot plants /

Yeah I got plans and if it’s in God’s hands /
He’s probably thinking “God damn that’s a lot man” /
But I’ll be counting my money in my Calvin Klein undies /
In a house with nine dunnies out in mountain bike country, yeah /

[Chorus x 2]

[Bridge x 2]
