I am in the basement
I am on a green rug
I am singing my song yeah!

Theres a pulse drumset
and a casio keyboard
and a genz benz amp yeah!

Theres a big shelf with
lots of stuff on it
like a broken harmonium

and upstairs theres a dog
he has lots of claws and he likes to go
Tap Tap Tap Tap Tap Tap!

I see you out on the street
We have stop and chat
(Oh Yeah!)

You say I am fine, Yes!
I say I am fine, Yes!
Then we go our separate way

Its so weird that I feel so sad
We could of talked much longer
but i'll see again at the party
maybe no...maybe yeah!

I am so sad when you are gone
I don't know what to do with my life
But I guess I'm doing it but it doesn't mean
That I miss my wife

Maybe it just...means that I
Shouldn't...go on...with my life seems theres a price
When you have no life
