The Lyrics

The original song has one of my favorite spoken intros.
OK so your wall broke.
Your nail gun is missing
You're crying, crying
Say it's not even worth trying?
Well, before Home Depot takes all your cash
Dig this:

Every cilp-on belt needs tools
Some time
Measure twice cut once—a rule
Listen baby
A level and a plumb are true
'Cause every cilp-on belt needs tools

Putting up sheetrock is no easy thing to do
And there's no guarantee that the workmanship
Is gonna show through
Level walls they cannot see
So carry everything you'll need
On "This Old House" they say it's true
If you mess up a contractor will do

Every cilp-on belt needs tools
Some time
Measure twice cut once—a rule
Listen baby
A level and a plumb are true
'Cause every cilp-on belt needs tools

How can you help it when you're on a job all day
And your ability to hammer is swept away
Oh, if all of your tools are close at hand
You get the job done, you're the man
And now you pry the wood away
Good thing you brought your crowbar today

Every cilp-on belt needs tools
Some time
Measure twice cut once—a rule
Listen baby
A level and a plumb are true
'Cause every cilp-on belt needs tools

The one big advantage of renting: no home maintenance work required...I can spend all my free time tinkering with my stereo equipment (and PC) instead...5's...

Intro was great; loved the chorus too. Well done.

Thanks Arwen, Johny D, Ashkickass, John Barry, and Claude. Paul Robinson--the key to home ownership, if you're a spaz like me, is to find, then meticulously care and feed, a good handyman. :-)
