Lyrics

Don't Buy A House From A Man That Sells Cars
©2005 JJ Williams/Loft Music

{Bridge}
The tiles cracked, the doors don't close,
the windows leak and the floors are bowed
but we call it home cause it's better than a lean to


{Chorus}:
What was I thinkin?. What was I Thinkin?.
Why did I buy a house from a man that sells cars


You buy a house with a dream and a hope
that the scope it will be, what you wanted

You work hard every day, slaving away
just to save enough money to get started.

When you find that house of dreams, though it seems it's just right,
you might find it not to be what it's supposed to

You give the man your money, and kiss your little honey,
and carry her through the door before it comes loose

{Chorus}

Be careful when you buy a house, beware of all the tricks
that louse, up you life beyond imagination

There's nowhere that I'd rather stay, than in my house that's all been paid,
but not if all the walls can fall around you


{Bridge}


What was I thinkin?. What was I Thinkin?.
Why did I buy a house from a man that sells cars

What was I thinkin?. What was I Thinkin?.
Why did I buy a house from a man that sells cars

Why did I buy a house from a man that sells cars

Interesting harmonies and chord progression, unique lyrics.
