The Lyrics

Here comes the brand new plumber
He never goes away
Tries to fix the toilet
But just gets in the way
How many leaks he's failed
To fix only today...

and If I had a toilet plunger...
If I had a toilet plunger...
If I had a toilet plunger
it would be fixed today

I don't believe he passed at college
I don't believe he passed first grade
I don't believe he works hard
His job isn't first rate
But when I talked with his superiors
They say he passed every grade

And if I had a toilet plunger...
If I had a toilet plunger...
If I had a toilet plunger...
He'd never get payday

It's his day of doom
$100,000
is what I'm gonna sue
He's done inhumane things
I've cried about my bathtub
And sobbed over my sink

And if I had a toilet plunger...
If I had a toilet plunger...
If I had a toilet plunger...
That would be rather great

I'll never forget his voices
but at least I'll try to try
Everytime I see my kitchen
Water rises to my eyes
Now I'm getting desperate
I'm going to the store

And I'm going to buy a toilet plunger
I'm going to buy a toilet plunger
I'm going to buy a toilet plunger
Only thirty-three forty-five
