For millions of years, in millions of homes
A man loved a woman, a child it was born
It learned how to hurt and it learned how to cry
Like humans do

I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out
So slip inside this funking house
Dishes in the sink
The tv's in repair
Don't look at the floor
Don't go up the stairs

I'm achin'
I'm shakin'
I'm breakin'
Like humans do

I work and I sleep and I dance and I'm dead
I'm eatin, I'm laughin and I'm lovin myself
I never watch tv except when I'm stoned
Like humans do

I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out
So slip inside this funking house
Dishes in the sink
The tv's in repair
Don't look at the floor
Don't go up the stairs

I'm achin'
I'm shakin'
I'm breakin'
Like humans do

I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out
So slip inside this funking house
Wiggle while you work
Anybody can
The rain is pourin in on a woman and a man

I'm achin'
I'm shakin'
I'm breakin'
Like humans do
I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out

    General Commentyeah it is "TVs in repair"

    anyway... i was in school last year and had to do a power point presentation on the conservative and liberal ideas of family for a political science course and i was looking for audio files and this thing popped up. and its about some family so i decided to be an ass and get a laugh so i played this thing thorugh the entire presentation.

    i kinda like it. the teacher pissed her pants listening to it. especially the kissing with tounges part. haha. i dont know.
