The Lyrics

Summer is coming! Perfect time for DIY!
When its time for the DIY job
Sanding the floor
I will be plastering the cracks in the walls
Paintin' ceilings paintin' the hall?
If I'd been out buying some varnish
Shall I hang the door?
I will need some nails, to put up the rails
From the hardware store

It will be good too
And if I paint the fence
And shall fix the loo

I could be leccy. changing the fuse
When the wiring shorts
Even hang a plasma by the fireside
Sunday today visit Ikea
Digging the garden, killing the weeds
Now I'll lay the floor
I will need some screws, to mend my old shoes
From the hardware store

Every weekend we can buy a table from Ikea in town
If its not to cheap
We shall nail and sand
The brand new shelf fittings
Glue, Screw And Cue

Put the new shelf up, carpet the stairs
Stunning point of view
Indicate precisely the measurements now
Put up the new light, stick in a bulb
More for evermore
I will need some nails, to put up the rails
From the hardware store

This parody is a real fixer-upper with a lot of potential. I'd start with the pacing, where there are several rough spots. Then I'd nail in some LOL lines to make it funnier. Finally, I'd weed out one of the two mentions of Ikea as it's redundantly repetitive. I'd love to see the fixed up version!
