Small Two-Bedroom Starter lyrics

The house stood empty on a corner

Waiting for a brand new owner

A soldier off to war who had to leave his bride alone


She couldn't buy too many nice things

On a GI bill and daydreams

But she tried until they told her

He was never coming home


Small two bedroom starter

Needs a little fixing

A great big yard for kids and pets to play

This one won't last too long

It's close to schools and churches

Owner leaving town

You better hurry down today


Bought by the high school teacher

Sold it to a baptist preacher

Who couldn't pay his taxes

Cause his flock had gone astray

So the banker fenced the yard in

Planted trees and half a garden

The man from Dallas kept it up

Till he moved away


Small two bedroom starter

Needs a little fixing

A great big yard for kids and pets to play

This one won't last too long

It's close to schools and churches

Owner leaving town

You better hurry down today


You and I we built the playroom

For the baby that came too soon

Spent money that we didn't have

Trying to make this place our own


Lord it makes me feel like dying

After all these years of trying

Honey we'll just bought this house

That we can't seem to make a home


Small two bedroom starter

Needs a little fixing

A great big yard for kids and pets to play

This one won't last too long

It's close to schools and churches

Owner leaving town

You better hurry down today


Small two bedroom starter

Waiting for a brand new owner
