The front door is a funny purple colour
And the back door lock is stiff
The hot tap leaks and drips all night
And there isn't a bath at all.
But there's you and me and a fire
To keep us warm when it works
And a pile of saved-up shillings
To spend on smiling in the hall.
There's a squeaky bed with a lumpy mattress
And a light that you have to get
Right out of bed for the switch
And a draught at just the wrong height.
But it's our little flat for
Five pounds a month on Monday
All all that we want is right here.
And it's your turn to turn off the light.
