lyrics

The good people built those houses with their hands

And taught their daughters to play on tin drum sets

While an old man put a grandkid on the piano

And they played chopsticks until their hands went dead

And cats were thrown off the backs of trucks and ambled up the yard to us

Singin' all I want is a bed to lie in lovin' arms for me to die in

And the garbage man took the cans he can with Mrs. Van Holzer

If he wants to no he can't, no he can't 'cus he's a married man

And if Mr. Van Holzer found out, with his short temper

You know what he will do?

And she was singing true but the garbage man's the only one can dance real blue

And pretty soon the fire trucks and ambulance were singing too

They were singin Ooo...

They were singin Ooo...

So if you move out west it's best to keep a very close eye on your kids and pets

Cus big birds have been known to dive

And carry those precious things to heavy heights

And drop them in a field

While sad sisters all come down to kneel and hold their hands to their hearts

They've learned to lock all of the things they love up

Yeah they were cryin

They were lyin in the fields

They were singin from the places where they kneeled

Yeah they were singin

They were singin

They were singin Ooo...

They were singin Ooo...

Someone in my head said when all you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat

All you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat

When all you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat

When all you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat

And the garbage men, and the ambulance

Oh lovin sisters, tin drum sets

Married women and their men

They all were singin

They were singin Ooo...
