The Lyrics

Who can change a light bulb, who can clean the flu
Who can fix the toilet and have it done by noon
The Handyman
(The Handyman)
The Handyman can
(The Handyman Can)
The Handyman can cause he
Fixes it with love and makes the toilet work good

Who can fix a window, who can fix a drip
Open up the door when you're locked out like a dip
The Handyman
(The Handyman)
The Handyman can
(The Handyman can)
The Hanyman can cause he
Fixes it with love and makes the toilet work good

The Handyman takes everything you break
Brings it back in good condition
He'll try to get to all your wishes
He will sometimes wash the dishes

Who will come tomorrow, fix your broken door
Take apart your doorbell and replace the wire that's wore
The Handyman
(The Handyman)
The Handyman can
(The Handyman can)
The Hanyman can cause he
Fixes it with love and makes the toilet work good

Nice parody, but a small pacing problem on this line:

Fixes it with love and makes the toilet work good

You could have substituted "Can" for "Toilet" which would have paced it better. Not going to ding you on pace though because different people read a line differently. I have 555 broken things at my house. When can you show up?

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I know it's not perfect. Cheated a bit on the rhyme of flue and noon, and a couple pacing things.

How many fingers does a handman have? 5's!! Even though I can't believe you didn't replace love with glove. I am still scratching my head on that one...
