The Lyrics

Every time I look for tools to start a project I wind up singing the blues.
The drill is gone
It's gone away for good
You know the drill is gone, baby
It's gone away for good
Loaned it to my neighbor
He never returned it like he should

The drill is gone
Same with my saw and hammer too
The drill is gone, baby
So is my construction glue
Can't get no work done, honey
and I am just so sad and blue

The drill is gone
Now my router cain't be found
Yeah, the drill is gone, baby
It's really got me feeling down
And my plumb bob, darlin'?
Well, I think it plumb left town

The drill is gone
And where is my measurin' square?
The drill is gone, baby
I'm sure I left it there
And my socket set, sugar
Just seems to be nowhere

The drill is gone
So is my measurin' tape
Yes, the drill is gone, honey
But one thing I really hate
Is that my reciprocating saw
Just won't reciprocate

The drill is gone
It's gone away for good
Yeah, the drill is gone
It's gone away for good
My neighbor done me wrong
Didn't treat me like he should

I notice that you've just started submitting parodies, and I think you write well, so don't be discouraged by a lack of votes--it's par for the course. If you enjoy writing the parodies, keep doing it--don't stop because people don't vote.
