She'll hang the baskets on the walls
Don't you know I've seen it all before
She'll hang the baskets on the walls
But I've seen it all before
Heard the slamming of the door
Come summer, come fall, come winter
There'll be baskets on the floor

He'll go to buy her turtle wax
But in his mind he won't be coming back
She'll hang the baskets on the walls
But I've seen it all before
Heard the slamming of the door
Come summer, come fall, come winter
There'll be baskets on the floor

But I've seen it all before
Heard the slamming of the door
Come summer, come fall, come winter
There'll be baskets on the floor

She'll hang the baskets on the wall
She'll hang the baskets on the wall
She'll hang the baskets on the wall
She'll hang the baskets on the wall

    General CommentYes! I'm poppin' this one's cherry. I'll break it down for ya in a nice, simple way.

    "She'll hang the baskets on the walls"
    The guy's gf is loving, caring, in love with the guy.

    "Heard the slamming of the door"
    Argument: One of those times where there's a (not so amiable) "goodbye" but then a week "I can't live without you"...and together again. What's the argument about: anything...cheating, money, blah blah - if you're old enough to know, well, you know :)
    I don't think it mostly implies that repeated "goodbye....(come back)....hello" rather than a final termination. This argument is supported by the "Come summer, winter, fall." If it implied a conclusive end, that lyric would be more like "It's the end. She'll never return."

    As for the turtle wax...you got me :) but that turtle wax and the following like "in his mind, he won't be coming back" means that they're dating/living together but there's no emotional connection anymore. Yeah, I've had a few of those...the relationship just continues b/c you & and the girl are just afraid of going out there, being alone, and playing that *b1tch* of a game called dating.

    My two cents, anyway...

    "There'll be baskets on the floor"
