The Lyrics

Watch out
Roof has some rotten rafters
Floor's wavy
You could be in danger
What a nightmare I did buy
Termites in the house

Flyin' around all over
Spray baygon think I better
Wish they would all just go away
Termites in the house

Kitchen ceiling has a sag, porch deck has ten rotten boards
Exterminator is here
Termites are a nasty bug, there's some underneath the rug
Munchin' on some wood fiber

Six legs
They're crawlin' 'round all over
Spray down
Bugs swarming in the skylight
Wish they would just stick to dead trees
Termites in the house

Thought it looked like a nice place, but now I could just hang myself
Damn bugs fly in my face
Builder did some shoddy work, no one came here to inspect
Should just put it to flame

My house
S'out of the ordinary
That's right
Wish I could sue somebody
Now fixing it up will not be cheap
Termites in the house

Dinning room floor has no support and you have not seen nothing yet
Bathroom wall's not much better
Those darn bugs have no respect, boring into my TV set
Munchin' on some wood fiber

Termites in the house

Termites in the house

Termites in the house

Nice parody (5/5/5), but the original artist is TALKING Heads.
Johnny D - November 30, 2004 - Report this comment
555, and I thought "Taking Heads" was the "Band Of Scottish Highlander Immortals" who perform covers of Talking Heads' songs.

All 5's - for the parody and the unintentional band name (Taking Heads - don't know if I want to go to their concert).
