lyrics

It’s costing a fortune the house of your dreams
Deceptively spacious with through lounge and beams
Then you drive out to view but it's not what it seems
They never tell you that

It’s next to a pig farm, it leans to the right
The quarry behind it is worked day and night
And the new power station’s a wonderous sight
They never tell you that

It’s tasteful, proportioned, and sought after too
Charming and rural and smart
Executive home with exceptional view
Its garden will soon win your heart

But the pleasure of weeding easily cloys
Dogs from next door were born to make noise
And the doors and the windows are painted turquoise
They never tell you that

Herbaceous, vivacious, audacious and sweet
Delicious, auspicious, ambitious, a treat
But it’s right where the bypass and motorway meet
They never tell you that

But still we go hunting for oak and for beam
The agents still sell us the hope and the dream
It’s a dwelling of status to bring us esteem
Have we seen the fishpond, the gurgling stream?
So we buy their nightmare and they get the cream
They never tell you that
Try renting a flat
