The Lyrics

Well I have seen a lot of DIY on the TV
and I thought to myself well that looks so easy
I'm filling in some cracks and now I'm building a rack

Before the tools come out I will be using hand gestures
and I think that flooring is the wrong dimension
I think I better move that fern
I think that looks handsome

I will estimate some more and wait
but I must do these chores

Turn on the light so you can see
Reading the plan is too easy
Open up the box
and you'll find gloves gloves gloves gloves

Turning on some music and I wish the phone would ring
I just need a cup of tea
And these are way too tight, these gloves, gloves, gloves, gloves, gloves

No I will estimate some more and wait
but I must do these chores

There's no need to estimate that pine is short
Please can they wait, these chores

Do do do do, do do do do
But this doesn't want to come on
Put that down over here
And I really need a beer

Do do do do woah woah

I've been spending too much time just looking at the mirror
So I better get it finished now because I want some dinner
So I filled myself a glass
And I saw a new chore and I laughed

I guess all I'm doing is thinking of a good reason
If there is such a thing as DIY is it out of season?
I wish that it was true, but got jobs to do

I will estimate some more and wait
but I must do these chores

There's no need to estimate that pine is short
Please can they wait, these chores

(I will estimate)
Turn on the light so you can see
(What a chore, what a chore)
Reading the plan is so easy
Why don't you be smart and see that you can do these chores
(They cannot wait, these chores)

So please don't, please don't, please don't
(There's no need to estimate)
There's no need to estimate
(Your time is short)
Cause your time is short
(It is very late)
It is really getting quite late
These chores

Really liked it! Perfect parody for this song. I'd like to hear a recording of this. Used to watch DIY but haven't recently. 5's
