The Lyrics

Right now our apartment building has been declared "unfit for human habitation" by the city. If repairs aren't made by Monday, we could have to move out. I'd rather laugh than go insane, so I wrote this parody.
I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
Landlords that know the meaning of a
Hey, fix the hallway!

Water leaks through the walls up and down
Cockroaches racing across the floors at night
I'm so confused, my mind is indifferent
I'm sick of gnats, somebody shut off that light

Electricity runs through the frayed wires
And I watch it from this hole I call home
The mold makes me sick, it makes me perspire
I call the hotline
But they've shut off the phone!

I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
A place where screwballs don't come out and play
I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
Landlords that know the meaning of a
Hey, fix the hallway!

Well I'm wiped out by this communal life I'm living
I'm gonna get my deposit back, or head back home
The rental agency just cannot be forgiven
I just can't face shakin' in this bedroom
With the mice, all alone!

I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
A place where screwballs don't come out and play
I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
Landlords that know the meaning of a
Hey, fix the hallway!

I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
A place where screwballs don't come out and play
I need some housing that won't drive me crazy
Landlords that know the meaning of a
Hey, fix the hallway!

Won't pay rent now
