Man About the House

She needs a man about the house someone who can do a proper job
A sensitive yet sensible example not a helpless good for nothing slob
What good’s a man about the house when all he does is get under your feet
Go to the football and to the pub you can pick one up like that on any street
A broken dream machine that’s way beyond repair
No good to anyone oh how she must despair

She needs a man about the house someone who won’t get under her skin
Tells herself she’s the only one stupid enough to live with him
The only person he loves is himself he never does a blessed thing
Locks himself away inside his room create some idea…berate some idea
One night with Pamela Sigourney or Jennifer
A Harley Davidson trip across America

To get things done around her you might as well do them yourself
In the time that it takes him to think
You could have painted the fence
Wallpapered the living room
You could have fixed that kitchen sink

A broken dream machine that’s way beyond repair
No good to anyone oh how she must despair
One night with Pamela Sigourney or Jennifer
A Harley Davidson trip across America
