Shop Vac

We took the freeway out of town....we found a place to settle down

We bought a driveway and a swing set and a dog

You got your very own bathroom....I got my very own workshop in the basement


We sit around staring at the wall-to-wall, take field trips to our favorite mall

Waiting for the day when all the kids grow up and leave us here


If you need me, I'll be downstairs, with the shop vac

You can call but I probably won't hear you...because it's loud with the shop vac on

But you'll be OK, ‘cause you'll be upstairs, with the TV

You can cry and I probably won't hear you, because it's loud with the shop vac on


We hung a flag above the door, checked out the gourmet grocery store

I bought a mower I can ride around the yard

But we haven't got real friends, and now the fake ones have stopped calling


Maybe if you forget to hide the keys, I'll take a ride to Applebee's

I'll come home drunk on daiquiris and throw up in the neighbor's pond



I like the Starbucks here that's better than the other one

Because the other one's not as good

They really need to put a light there cause it's hard to turn

It's hard to make a left turn...solo


And when it's time to go to bed...I'm still awake inside my head

I'm floating up above the house and looking down

I guess I gotta go back there, I guess there never was any other answer


And as the freeway hums the cars go by, the headlights roll across the sky

Many miles away but I can see them speeding through the dark


chorus, out
