There’s a Hole

fixer upper

I can’t stop humming this old song from my childhood tonight.  You might know the lyrics from “There’s a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea. ” (Here is a link to the original song if you aren’t familiar with it…)

I have changed the words to suit our home tonight…

There’s a wall at the top of my stairs,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs
There’s wall,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs.

There’s a hole in the wall at the top of my stairs
There’s a hole in the wall  at the top of my stairs
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs.

There’s a pipe in the hole in the wall at the top of my stairs,
There’s a pipe in the hole in the wall at the top of my stairs,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs.

There’s a crack in the pipe in the hole in the wall at the top of my stairs,
There’s a crack in the pipe in the hole in the wall at the top of my stairs,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs.

There’s a flood in the basement from the crack in the hole in the wall at the top of the stairs,
There’s a flood in the basement from the crack in the hole in the wall at the top of the stairs,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs.

There’s a plumber in the flood in the basement from the crack in the hole in the wall at the top of the stairs,
There’s a plumber in the flood in the basement from the crack in the hole in the wall at the top of the stairs,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs.

There’s a hole in our checkbook from the plumber in the flood in the basement from the crack in the hole in the wall at the top of the stairs,
There’s a hole in our checkbook from the plumber in the flood in the basement from the crack in the hole in the wall at the top of the stairs,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall,
There’s a wall at the top of my stairs.

So let’s,
write the check,
pay the plumber,
clean the flood,
fix the crack,
patch the hole
in the wall at the top of the stairs.

cause no one wants a hole in the wall at the top of the stairs!
