My house is sliding into the sea 
Skies are grey, since you've been away 
The chickens aren't laying eggs no more 
It can only mean you left me for sure 

But I still think of you when I'm alone 
How can I ever repay you for what you do to me

How can I ever repay you for what you do to me 

La do dah la do dah dah la do dah 

My trees are all turning brown 
The sun won't shine, now you're no longer mine 
The rats are crawlin' up me back 
It can only mean you're never coming back 

But I still, think of you when I'm alone 
Oh how could I ever repay you for what you do to me 
And I still, think of you when I'm alone 
Oh how could I ever repay you for what you do to me 

La do dah la do dah dah la do dah 
Wooh! 

My bed is leaning to one side 
You know I can't sleep now that I've lost my pride 
The flies are swarming in like bees 
I even have to share my clothes with fleas 

But I still, yeah think of you when, I'm alone 
How can I ever repay you for what you do to me 
And I still, yeah think of you when, I'm alone 
How can I ever repay you for what you do to me 
Come on!
