Once upon a marriage in a corner of the world.
I knew happiness, I had a girl.
The one day the world turned black.
I can fell you know you're on my back.
I can fell you know you're on my back.
One afternoon I saw the truck.
Gone went you're apron.
Goodbye went luck.

How did it feel with my eyes against the world.
It felt pretty much like a wooden world.
It felt pretty much like a wooden world.

Take these tables, take these chairs.
Left by the windows, left by the stairs.

Second hand furniture.
Second hand furniture.

So what did I do with the rest of my life.
I wandered around missing my wife.

How did it feel with my eyes against the world.
It felt pretty much like a wooden world.
It felt pretty much like a wooden world.

Well, once upon a winter in another town.
I walked around against what I found.
There in the window in a naked light.

I saw our bed in the window light.
I saw our bed in the window light.

Take these tables, take these chairs.
Left by the windows, left by the stairs.

Second hand furniture.
Second hand furniture.

There were four chairs my mamma left me.
There was a Persian carpet with its weave gone bare.
There was kitchen utensils sitting out getting rusty.
One bookshelf all painted blue.
Something all the way from Kenya made out of Mahogany.
There was a kitchen stove of the Kelvinator variety.
There was four front steps.
There was five back steps.
There was a linoleum floor with geometric arrangement of colors and lines.
There was two lampshades and a door that wouldn't open on the front door.

Take these tables, take these chairs.
Left by the windows, left by the stairs.

Second hand furniture.
Second hand furniture.

Oahu home sweet home.
Oahu home sweet home.
Oahu home sweet home.
