The Lyrics

Ah, the old bucket-of-water-over-the-door gag. God, that'd get annoying after the fifty-bajillionth time, y'know?
It made me giggle the first few times, man
But it's run its course, so please stop this crap
Sick of gettin' drenched I when forget to upwards glance
Geez, buddy, how can you still laugh?

A prank that one often sees on a cartoonish farce
The first time it happened to me, I was shocked, it seemed so bizarre
I asked you "Why did you need to do this dumb thing, you arse?"
Claimed it was simply a one-off, a stealth test, that's all
Quite stupidly, I believed ya, got new clothes on
Almost got a few abrasions with how hard I rubbed my hair cause
I was late for my shift, had to depart
Should've then thought to look up, too rushed by half

You're lucky my boss giggled when I explained, man
That I was late cause my friend is a prat
Hindsight, I'll admit that it was worth a little laugh
But buddy, I'm sick of this crap
Puttin' buckets on my doorway perch
Water buckets on my doorway perch

I share the blame here in part, it's clear I must be a fool
Because I'm keepin' my doors open to let all the air through
But I still say the fault should mostly belong to you
Since you are the one crazy enough to bring two
Huge, mostly full plastic buckets just to dump on me
Ev'ry time you're at my house, I think that's three times a week
Oh, when I see you there wavin' when you see a soaked me
Somehow ignore my fumin' glare, the swear words I speak

Just cause one time I giggled at your dumb prank, man
Doesn't mean I want more, it's such a drag
Even when I check to see if this door will backstab
My "buddy" rigs the next three, damn
Puts buckets on my doorway perch
My, my, my, my, my, my, my doorway perch
My, my, my, my, my, my, my doorway perch
My, my, my, my, my, my, my doorway perch

This gag has outstayed its welcome, wastin' all my time
Tryna force it to land 'fore the door opens wide
You dope, just cause it's Coke in it this time
Doesn't give it enough variation, it's still shite
Whole wardrobe's soaked, I'm still naked inside
You're lucky I don't need to leave except to check my mail, right
I swear I'm gonna push you off the next bridge I find
And then my doorway perch will be free from shite

Your constant giggles when I spring your trap
Adds another punch for the time I snap
All my thorough checks have so far meant absolute crap
Look, buddy, not impressed by that
Hate buckets on my doorway perch
My, my, my, my, my, my, my doorway perch
My, my, my, my, my, my, my doorway perch
My, my, my, my, my, my, my doorway perch

Could not find any lyric sheets that had the "aye-diddle-aye" outro nonsense, so let's just say that part is the singer mumbling in a rassafrassa kinda way with a bucket on his head.
