Affordable Housing Lament
My Dad said he'd buy me a condo, My Mom thought that would be nice But he changed his mind in a hurry When he got a look at the price!
Bring back, bring back, affordable housing to me, to me Bring back, bring back, affordable housing to me!
Sometimes I just park out at Stilson (up at Taggart?) And sleep in the back of my van The john there is certainly handy And I shower whenever I can.
There’s 500 jobs in the paper There’s only 6 places to rent Their prices are really outlandish So it’s either my van or my tent.
I deliver the paper at sunrise, I’m a liftee - during the day I work as a waiter all evening But I still have no place to stay!
Perhaps there's no simple solution But last night while smoking some grass The answer came to me quite quickly Dig a big tunnel under the Pass!
I wish I could buy a small camper And park it where ever I want So then I could have my own bathroom And dump out the tank at Gros Ventre.
