The Lyrics

When I plugged it in
I knew that it could make lights dim
But when it did
It didn't want to keep them on

When I hear the phone
All the lights start blinking in my home
It drives me crazy
I wasn't tryin' to turn them off

No, it didn't want to keep them on

I clap my hands
Or even if I drop some pans
They all turn off
I didn't want to turn them off

I know they're
Recommending just one lightstand
I blew the fuse
Now I'm needing a helping hand

It drives me crazy
It wasn't me that turned them off

Take my advice
Not a bargain even half priced
Too much even half priced
No, you'll never want to turn them on

You know I could cry
Get upset when they don't stay
Upset cause they won't behave
I didn't mean to turn them on
No, I didn't mean to turn them off

When I plugged it in
Just didn't know I'll never win
I dropped my glass
But didn't mean to turn them off

No, I didn't mean to turn them on

I didn't mean to turn them off
I didn't mean to turn them on
I didn't mean to turn them off
I didn't mean to turn them on
I didn't mean to turn them off
I didn't mean to turn them on
I didn't mean to turn them off
I didn't mean to turn them on
