Story Behind the Song

I promised my wife to write her a song every year during [February Album Writing Month], and this year she wanted me two write an ode to her new favorite green sweater with a sled embroidered on it. The original hook went "sled-sweater, you're the one for


she's got the jigsaw down
and there's carnage of plywood all around
paint-spattered shirt & jeans for an evening gown
be that as it may
with the living room in total disarray
i still love you girl, and your mess is AOK

how many guys can say they got themselves a girl
who can tell a Bosch from a Ryobi?
and all she wants for christmas is a 12-volt power drill
dust goggles, you're the one for me

she squares off every inch
she's got her vice grips and her socket wrench
girl, i want you more when you're leaning at the bench

how many guys can say they got themselves a belle
who can use a drill press and table saw?
and when the dust has cleared still look as hot as hell
in threadbare overalls

how many guys can say they took themselves a wife
who knows her MDF from her PVC?
chisel, chalkline, dremel, blowtorch, pliers, and a putty knife
dust goggles, you're the one for me...
