The Lyrics

This spawned from... not quite a misheard lyric, but I just think it just sounds like he could be saying "You are the perfect rug" instead of "You are the perfect drug". Because of the way the consonant sounds collide. So I used that to turn it into a song about buying a new bathroom rug.
I got my tiles, but my cloth is unraveling
Can't keep control, can't keep the stupid thing from tattering
Got my receipt, but it's long expired
This old thing's so worn-out and so tired
I'm driving to every bathroom accessory shop
I shouldn't go, but it's ripping, dragging, tearing up
I walked the aisle until you caught my eye
Your lovely stitching makes me wanna cry!

And I want you
And I want you
And I want you
And I WANT YOU!

You are the perfect rug
the perfect rug, the perfect rug
You are the perfect rug
the perfect rug, the perfect rug

You feel so soft when I feel tense and tight
You are on sale, baby, the price is right
You're going in my shopping cart
Without you my whole bathroom falls apart
My butt just wants to share the room with you
My feet just want to walk all over you
My floor will never be the same again
You really do get the best of me

And I want you
And I want you
And I want you
And I WANT YOU!

You are the perfect rug
the perfect rug, the perfect rug
You are the perfect rug
the perfect rug, the perfect rug
You are the perfect rug
the perfect rug, the perfect rug
You are the perfect rug
the perfect rug, the perfect rug

I'll take you with me...
I'll take you with me...
Without you
Without you, room decor falls apart
Without you
It's not as much fun to go to the bathroom
Without you
Without you, room decor falls apart
Without you
It's not as much fun to go to the bathroom
(etc.)
