Country House

In the style of

Blur

Lyrics

so the story begins
city dweller
successful fella

thought to himself
oops i've got
a lot of money
caught in a rat race
terminally

i'm a
professional cynic
but my heart's not in it
i'm payin' the price
of livin' life
at the limit

caught up
in the century's
anxiety
yes it preys on him
he's getting thin
try the simple life

he lives in a house
very big house
in the country
watchin'
afternoon repeats
and the food he eats
in the country

he takes
all manner of pills
and piles up
analyst bills
in the country

oh it's like
an animal farm
lots of
rural charm
in the country

he's got
morning glory
and life's
a different story
everything's going
jackanory
touched with
his own mortality

he's reading balzac
knocking back
prozac
it's a helping hand
that makes you feel
wonderfully bland

oh it's
the century's remedy
for the faint at heart
a new start
try the simple life

he lives in a house
a very big house
in the country
he's got a fog
in his chest
so he needs
a lot of rest
in the country

he doesn't drink
smoke laugh
takes herbal baths
in the country

you should
come to no harm
on the animal farm
in the country
in the country
in the country
in the country

blow
blow me out
i am so sad
i don't know why

blow
blow me out
i am so sad
i don't know why

oh he lives in a house
a very big house
in the country
watchin'
afternoon repeats
and the food he eats
in the country

he takes
all manner of pills
and piles up
analyst bills
in the country

oh it's like
an animal farm
lots of
rural charm
in the country

oh oh he lives
in a house
very big house
in the country

he's got a fog
in his chest
so he needs
a lot of rest
in the country

he doesn't drink
smoke laugh
takes herbal baths
in the country

you should
come to no harm
on the animal farm
in the country
ooh la la la
i wanna be
i wanna be
