Tear The House Down (The Fables)

This world is either spinnin' way too fast or way too slow,
And you gotta keep your head above confusion;
Gotta get a job, I guess it'll be Ontario,
From the quiet bays to endless noise pollution.
You're caught up in a brain drain,
Can't live your life like a plain Jane;
And you hear the ghetto war blastin' on the radio.
It's Yonge Street from Burkes Lane,
Let's put 'er up one more time before we go,
And tear the house down.

Boys in boots, and women with no shoes upon their feet,
Time is flyin' till the early light;
Tickin', tockin', now she's rockin'... dancin' in the street,
Put your troubles out of mind and out of sight.
But pocket change, nickel and dime,
Common sense ain't worth the time;
It's the same old, same old, wrapped in lily white.
Let's shoot from the blue line,
And put 'er up one more time tonight;
We'll tear the house down. Tear the house down.
Tear the house down... Tear the house down.

Let's round up all the crowd,
Loosen up the joint;
Three sheets to the wind,
Where else ya gonna go tonight.
Dance your feet down to your knees,
Wake up the girls next door.
Let's dance upon the roof,
What odds about the kitchen floor;
We'll tear the house down. Tear the house down.
Tear the house down... Tear the house down.
Tear the house down. Tear the house down.
Tear the house down... Tear the house down.

Yee-haa!
