Hardware store

Queen lives in a palace
Nick holes up in a cave
the King lay down in Graceland
Bobby Ewing on a Ranch
my dream of cosy living
is a hall of steel and stone
where I fullfill my passion
steadily working on my home

I wanna live in a hardware store
singing with the saws a b-minor chord
ain’t a better home for my handcraft soul

sleeping on concrete cushions
I cut my nails with saws
my meal is made of sawdust
my pants of fiberglass

I wanna live in a hardware store
dancing though the hall in a rockwool coat
ain’t a better home for my tinker soul
hardware store born

drilling, dragging, screwing, sawing, cutting, clipping, building, bonding, painting, pulling, hammering, handling, nailing, knocking ... living

I wanna live in a hardware store
flying through my home on a cargo rope
ain’t a better ride for my hardcore soul

I wanna live in a hardware store
barbecue my meat on the parquet floor
sleeping in a bed out of plasterboard
wake up in the morning with a hammer blow
paint on the wall “home steel home”
bore into the floor “my home is my store”
do it for myself cause I’m born to bore
hardware store whore
