Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired, she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs 
Sister's sighing in her sleep 
Brother's got a date to keep he can't hang around 

Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our

Our house it has a crowd 
There's always something happening 
And it's usually quite loud
Our mum she's so house-proud
 Nothing ever slows her down and a mess is not allowed 

Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our
Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our (something tells you that you've got to get away from it)

 Father gets up late for work
 Mother has to iron his shirt 
Then she sends the kids to school 
Sees them off with a small kiss
She's the one they're going to miss in lots of ways

Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our

I remember way back then when everything was true and when
We would have such a very good time such a fine time
Such a happy time
And I remember how we'd play, simply waste the day away
Then we'd say nothing would come between us
Two dreamers 

 Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired, she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs 
Sister's sighing in her sleep 
Brother's got a date to keep he can't hang around 

Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our

Our house, was our castle and our keep
Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, that was where we used to sleep 
Our house, in the middle of our street 
Our house, in the middle of our street, our house
