16 Easy Songs for Drill & Banjo - In My House

in my house
my very fine house
rats were nesting in the walls
so i chipped off the plaster
and lath, and now all
those rats have gone
and there are no walls
in my house my house
my very fine house

in my house
my very fine house
a litter of kittens
lived under the floor
so i took up the carpets
and tore up the boards
and i drowned them kittens
now there are no floors
in my house my house
my very fine house

in my house
my very fine house
there was a possum
in the chimney breast
so i dug out the mortar
and the bricks and the rest
and i ate that possum
now there’s no chimney left

in my house my house
my very fine house
in my house
my very fine house
there were pigeons
up in the loft
so i got on the roof
and took the tar paper off
now the pigeons have flown
and i see stars above
in my house my house
my very fine house

in my house
my very fine house
there’s a lover
who lives with me
i tried once
to get her out
she said “darling i’ll leave you
but i’m taking the house
your house your house
your very fine house”
