Landlord's Lullaby


Close your eyes my sleepy tenants
As you sign your rent contract
Kiss goodbye your rent deposit
For you'll never get it back

Go to sleep my little tenants
Though the gas is leaking fast
Lay your head upon the pillow
This night's sleep may be your last

Though the roof is rather leaky
And paper's peeling off the wall
And there's plaster on your bedspread
Be thankful there's a wall at all

Though the furnace is erratic
And the wiring seems decayed
Come the morn you'll be evicted
And your homestead blown away
