    Notes: The Fall cover

    My new house
    You should see my house
    My new house
    You should see my new house


    No rabbit hutch about it
    I bought it off the baptists
    I get the bills
    And I get miffed
    At the damn polyester fills
    The interior is a prison unconscious


    My new house
    Keep away from my new house


    Wash the drawers of pills
    It's got window sills
    With lead centred in the middle of them


    My new house
    Is no beatnik hang-out


    That Halifax copter
    Sure dropped me a cropper


    Sometimes I think I'll ring Swine-Tax [1]
    And go back to my flat


    But my new house
    I do love the mad things about it


    According to the postman
    It's like the bleeding Bank of England


    Creosote tar fence surrounds it
    Those razor blades eject when I press eject


    My new house
    Could easily crack a mortal, it


    The spare room is fine
    Though a little haunted
    By Mr. Reagan who had hung himself at number 13
    Mr. Reagan hung himself at number 13


    It'll be great when it's decorated
    My new house
