The Lyrics

I think you're trying to unscrew it
When you should try to make it tight
I think you're trying to unscrew it
When you should turn it to the right

It's gotten dark, light bulb's out
I need some friends to help me out
I climb up, hold the bulb
Now you turn the ladder around

I think you're trying to unscrew it
That ain't the way to change a light
I think you're trying to unscrew it
When you're supposed to make it bright

I've been sitting in my dark dark room
To change the light bulb, end this gloom
But I can't stick it in the hole
I don't have no motor control

I think you're trying to unscrew it
This may be leading to a fight
I think you're trying to unscrew it
I hope this doesn't take all night

I think you're trying to unscrew it
When you should try to make it tight
I think you're trying to unscrew it
This ain't no way to change a light
