The Lyrics

"Taykmai" is supposed to be pronounced "Take-My" (obviously for comedic effect). If you have any home repairs that need done, call ANYONE but these guys. Original Song
You got something that’s broken
That’s when I come along
Come to your home, we’ll fix it like no other
And it will not take too long
We’ll do our best to fix it
Past cust’mers say “Don’t listen!”
Can’t help but think that they are right
I hope, I pray that no one dies!

We are Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools

Floors that creak, splinters that pierce your feet
Fix it in eight weeks! Please call us!
Taykmai Tools, we are
Taykmai Tools

Your back screen door is messed up
Rain gutters as well
Hit with sledge hammer, “Fixed it, there!”
Then I’ll give you the bill
Took crowbar to cupboard
Fixed the steps one time
Said, “That’s it!” But then you tripped,
And nearly broke your spine!

Call us, Taykmai Tools
Someone Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools

TV turns on when flushed the john (aahhhh)
I don’t know much, but think that’s wrong! (ahhh)
My belt goes on, hope I’m not lost (aahhhh)
My tool belt on, but I’m so lost
My tool belt on, but I’m so lost
Don’t know what’s wrong, can’t be too hard
I so messed up, make up a cost!

You think we’re totally lost, but we are...
Taykmai Tools
You think we’re totally lost, but we are...
Taykmai Tools

Youwsa, youwsa, youwsa

I got it all together now
I was clueless, but now I know, yeah!
Retiled your kitchen and unclogged your drain
Why’d the floor collapse? Who knows?

Ask me to fix something
But I fixed it yesterday...
Your house now filled with smoke
Overflowing sink
But I’ll get this right, someday!

Someone Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools
We are Taykmai Tools

Someone Taykmai Tools!
We may look totally lost, but we are
We may look totally lost, but we are
We may look totally lost, but we are
We may look totally lost, we’re Taykmai TOOLS-ah!

Hey darlin'...wanna help me out a sec?
Lookin' for circuit breaker! Where is it!?
Wait a minute...I've got it...that the…*electric shock*
Huh? I blew it!?
Hey, where’s my nails? Oh no, don’t need them...
Your place looks fine!

(Artistry)Fixed it up and did it pretty good here, Abbott.

Doesn't need any repairs. You built this one from the ground up. Well done craftsmanship here.

(Artistry) I'm guessing Taykmai Tools are closely affiliated with the law offices of Dewey, Cheatem & Howe? Brilliant parody here, fantastically built. 555!
Max Power - December 31, 2013 - Report this comment
Well built, like a fortress. You did it with a box of scraps in five months!

(Artistry) It kind of confused me that this was somewhat of an ad for this company, yet they are showing how inept they are. It bothered me a little bit, although made for a funny spoof sir, so I guess I'm just being stupid or something.
