cyder_drinker Lyr Req: There's a Spider in the Bathtub (Wurzels) (23) RE: Lyr Req: There's A Spider In The Bathtub (Wurz 08 Dec 05


After a big dredge of the memory (I learned this when I was about 10 cause I borrowed the "Golden Delicious" album of the kid next door) I can come up with this. The words are 99% right, but possibly the verses are in the wrong order. Hope it helps.

THERE'S A SPIDER IN THE BATHTUB
The Wurzels

There's a spider in the bathtub
a cockroach in the sink
The toilet seat is broken
the chain hasn't got a link
(can't remember this line, sorry)
there's rubbish on the stairs
The state this place is getting in
it seems nobody cares

But with housing such a problem
It seems a crying shame
A man should have to suffer
When he is not to blame
But I must keep up me standards
cause if things do not improve
I may find meself
obliged to move.

The larder's getting empty
The ashcan's getting full
The windows are so filthy
don't see the sun at all.
The last lightbulb is broken
No need to pay the bill
And it won't disturb the nest of mice
beneath the windowsill

But with housing such a problem
It seems a crying shame
A man should have to suffer
When he is not to blame
But I must keep up me standards
cause if things do not improve
I may find meself
obliged to move.

The garden is a jungle
of nettles and of weeds
a few hours would take care of it
that's really all it needs
But no-one seems to give a damn
and no-one gives a cuss
The grass is high enough to hide
a double decker bus

The front door's off it's hinges
the tiles are off the roof
That the place is falling down
is getting near the truth
How can people be so thoughtless
to let this state exist
I think I'll have to put me name
down on the housing list

But with housing such a problem
It seems a crying shame
A man should have to suffer
When he is not to blame
But, I must keep up me standards!
