The Lyrics

got a screwdriver,
asked you for the plans
or to lend a hand, oh
that bit should go that way
that bit should go that way

we had no idea
plans did not explain
unscrewed bits again, oh
these pieces look the same
these pieces look the same

never was a joiner
I can't read that
guides? can't understand them
take this thing back

I bought a new shelf,
for my new tape deck,
I try, but I've found,
it's hard to erect,
I made these pieces,
fit in the wrong way,
and put the shelf up,
but it would not stay,
this part here you see,
s'not supposed to fold,
the guide it beats me,
lies useless below,
the parts i've not used,
or should'nt be glued,
or broke, in two

stoppped doing D.I.Y
i bought some stuff today
nails and wood and paint, oh
they won't fit together
they won't fit together

never was a joiner
I can't read that
guides? can't understand them
take this thing back

I bought a new shelf,
for my new tape deck,
I try, but I've found,
it's hard to erect,
this part here you see,
s'not supposed to fold,
the guide it beats me,
lies useless below,
I make it someday,
when I can release
my hand from this vice
so i'll have two free
I bought a new shelf,
for my new tape deck,
I try, but I've found,
it's hard to erect,
