The Lyrics

Look, I'm a PHILOSOPHER, not a handyman!
Needed new gutters on the place
So the rain could be controlled
This was my first project
But I was feeling bold
So I got some gutter adhesive
Put it in the caulking gun
Thought it was gonna be easy
Thought it was gonna be fun
But I got it on my fingers
I got in on my face
I got it on the baby
I got it all over the place
The only thing I could think to do was to wipe it on my pants
You might say I should wash it off
But I'm telling you I just can't
It's true
Tangled up in glue

I ran a gasline to the stove
Knew it was gonna be rough
One thing I hadn't counted on:
The supply line wasn't long enough
So I went down to the hardware store and told the man my woes
We searched all around the place but only found a garden hose
So I went out to the Home Depot where all the suburbs flock
I had just got there when, with a blank stare, she said 'Sorry, we're out of stock'
So I laid down in the plumbing aisle and I became withdrawn
Curled up in a fetal position...I just could not go on
I was blue
Tangled up in glue

I looked at my carpet and I became dismayed
It was looking really dirty
It was looking really frayed
I decided to lay me a hardwood floor
Got me a nailing gun
Brought it home, plugged it in, turned the damn thing on
But I shot it through the sofa
I shot it through the cat
I shot it through the TV
Shot off my neighbor's hat
I self-inflicted several wounds
Before I was finally through
I must admit I was a little uneasy
When I shot it through my shoe
I'm telling you
Tangled up in glue

I must admit I couldn't believe it when I read the words of the song.. Cause every time I start a project it ends up really wrong, Guess I'm like you... Man I've done that too
