"My New House" as written by and Mark E Smith....
My new house
You should see my house
My new house
You should see my new house

No rabbit hutch about it
I bought it off the baptists
I get the bills
And I get miffed
At the damn polyester fills
The interior is a prison unconscious
The interior is a prison unconscious

My new house
You should see my house
My new house
Keep away from my new house

Wash the drawers of pills
It's got window sills
With lead centered in the middle of them
With lead centered in the middle of them

My new house
Is no beatnik hang-out
My new house
You should see my house

That Halifax copter
Sure dropped me a cropper
That Halifax copter
Sure dropped me a cropper

My new house
You should see my house
My new house
You should see my new house

Sometimes I think I'll ring Swine-Tax
And go back to my flat
Sometimes I think I'll ring Swine-Tax
And go back to my flat

But my new house
I do love the mad things about it

According to the postman
It's like the bleeding Bank of England
According to the postman
It's like the bleeding Bank of England

Creosote tar fence surrounds it
Those razor blades eject when I press eject

My new house
You should see my house
My new house
Could easily crack a mortal, it

The spare room is fine
Though a little haunted
By Mr. Reagan who had hung himself at number 13
Mr. Reagan hung himself at number 13

It'll be great when it's decorated
My new house
You should see my house
My new house
You should see my house

    General CommentFor more info and clarification into how this New House was "bought off" the Baptists, "I get the bills/and I get miffed", or what kind of agency "Swine-Tax" is to us Yanks, the Fall has an unofficial Fall Lyrics Parade linked to their website. Just Google, or use Yahoo (or my personal fave search site, Dogpile) "The Fall Lyric Parade" to get a direct URL to it! ps--the webguys who maintan the lyrical accuracy of that site are very receptive to users who can provide history or clearer lyrical content; for instance, I noticed a line from "Cruiser's Creek" that they had done as "Great sex behind steel cabinets..." that I've always heard myself go, "I crave sex behind steel cabinets", having that album, "This Nation's Saving Grace", in my collection I treat as a "top 10 selection at The NW Penthouse Near You" (my apt.) it gets played so much! So I emailed them with my hunch and on a visit to that site shortly after my email--lo and behold, the webguys must have seen that line in a different light, because they changed the wording in my favor! Sweet!

    General CommentSome old prison ?
    Some guy is going to prison ?
    The prison, the new house, is better than his home ?

    Good song.
