The Lyrics

I saw my realtor and she said to paint them white
No red and black rooms now, they should all be plain white
She said most buyers want to see dull, boring walls
And if I don't comply, I'll not get any calls

The realtor looked in back and said to clean the yard
And after seeing it, she said it would hard
All the plants are overgrown, the weeds have run amok
That big mess must be removed or I'll have much bad luck

I guess I should get rid of that roach family
It's for the customers -- bugs never bothered me
There's a pungent smell around from my cats, which number ten
I should have bought some litter boxes way back when

So many people say the place sure looks like hell
There is a lot of work to do before I sell
I'll put more effort in and try to get on track
At least I got rid of the meth lab in the back

I saw my realtor and she said to paint them white
No red and black rooms now, they should all be plain white
She said most buyers want to see dull, boring walls
And if I don't comply, I'll not get any calls

I have to do it, paint them, paint them white
White so bright, white and bland
I'll have to see the floors for the first time in years
I have to do it, paint them, paint them, paint them, paint them white!
Aaaaaargh!

Good job, Mari, but it sounds like you and Rick needed a realty check.

Sounds like a real meth! I mean mess... :-D

Wow! I'm amazed at the response this one has gotten -- thanks! A realtor did tell us to paint some rooms white when we sold our old house five years ago. I had painted the bathroom green because the toilet was that color.

5-5-5. Great job. I've got a pink living room (wifes choice) is that a problem?

This isn't a Michael Jackson parody?

I'm purchasing a white bedroom
Vibrant and int'resting it ain't
Though I'm still enduring
The scent of cats' urine
Nearly masked by smell of paint
I'm purchasing a white bedroom
Looks more like a building site
May your colour schemes be bland and bright
And may all your rooms be painted white

;-) Phil

Great work Mari!

I really appreciate everyone's comments and contributions. A pink living room? Really? Phil, I especially like the line about cat urine.

Mari D - Wow! I almost missed this one and I don't know how. Great job of building up the hilarity ladder; the roaches, pungent cat smells and meth lab verses had me rolling. This one has to land near the top of the "amiright" dung pile by the time all the votes are in . I just found three "fives" under all the debris in my room (That would actually be if I were home instead of visiting some very fastidious folks). I'm gonna give them to you now before I lose them.

Mari, congratulations on making it into the monthlies. Good job on this parody. Maybe someday you'd like to hear my version from the elder Bush years: "It's My Supreme Court, Now I Need Someone Who's Black." d;:^)
