The Lyrics

I ain't got no money,
But I wanna built myself a house in town
So you know what, honey?
Gonna build it with no money down.
I have been encouraged
By the many rounds of gin I pour
In lieu of my lunch, babe, yeah
I'll soon have a front door, yeah.
Gonna used pressure-treated beams, babe,
So here is what I'm going to do:

I'm gonna steal your lumber
Yeah, you can just think of me as a Robin Hood of wood
I'm gonna steal your lumber
I'm gonna saw it up, nail it down; short boards, long; hammer-pound
Your lumber, yeah.
I'll do it 'cause your lumber's unencumbered.

I'm gonna need a plumber
All I've got is a plunger; the rest comes from you
Along with lumber
While I'm at it, maybe lift your car too.
And I get encouraged
When I see that huge lumber pile.
I am gonna go wild, yeah,
And build Frank Lloyd Wright style.
I'll increase the water pressure, baby, so
There'll be waterfall in living room.

I'm gonna steal your lumber
I'm gonna do it on the sly, so you won't come gunning
I'll do it while you slumber
I'm gonna take it all, clean you out, make you bawl, make you pout.
That lumber, yeah,
Unencumbered, has now become my lumber.
