Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Funny flooding song lyrics )
FILLING THE TUB
Copyright © 2006 - MickTerry.com
On your way off to work this morning,
you were in- a rush.
Fed the cat, grabbed your clothes,
didn't eat, barely even brushed.
But you'd started water running
to be soak-ing- down your plants.
But it seems you- got distracted.
Out the door you ran.
All day long that old funny feeling:
something you- forgot.
Windows closed. Oven off.
Door was slammed ... but not double-locked!
Yeah, that had to be the item
that had caused- you- such concern.
But it's not 'til- you got home-
that you fin'lly learned ...
You were FILLING THE TUB. Now ev'rything's wet.
You were FILLING THE TUB. How could you forget?
The water's been overflowing
since you hurried out the door.
You were FILLING THE TUB.
_ Four feet higher and it's rising more. _
All your goldfish are now all loving
what you've done with the place.
But your cat's clawed her way
to the top of the tall bookcase.
'Though your dog's not fond of swimming,
he's perfected the Australian crawl.
& the mice that had kept well-hidden
have now fled your walls.
CHORUS ( _ Pretty soon you're going to need some oars. _ )
Your coffee table is floating to another room
with a delicate set of crystal teet'ring to-and-fro.
Your plasma TV, immersed- in aquatic gloom:
& the last two shows you watched:
Finding Nemo and- Jacques Cousteau.
All your plants won't be needing water
for the next- three years.
& it looks like you've got
your own scaled down Katrina here.
FEMA won't rush to assist you.
Dubya Bush- won't be dropping by.
Your insurance- has gone bankrupt,
left you high & dry.
CHORUS ( _ Now it's almost to the second floor. _ )
