There is a new house in Orleans
Way back of Baker's Pond
And it's been the project of many a grown man
And God, I know I'm one

If I hadn't listened to what Tricia said
I'd have a home today
Way out yonder, way out west
Seattle, WA

Instead we build and build and build
I've learned a whole new trade
I'll paint your walls, I'll frame your deck
As long as it's pre-paid

Go tell my bigger sister
Not to do what I have done
I laid the tile, Tricia changed her mind
We've only just begun

My mother was a singer,
She sang with the big bands
My sweetheart teaches yoga, has a Masters Degree in counseling
and is a massage therapist
And I work with my hands

I used to play the folk guitar
Now I hammer and I screw
Don't let your twisted minds go there
I'm talkin' nails and glue

There is a new house in Orleans
Way back of Bakers Pond
It's been the project of many a grown man

And God, I know I'm one
