When I was twelve
While checkin' the mail
I was admiring the car
Of the man next door
And thinking to myself
One of these days
Gonna have me a house like that
With a big red door
And his lawn was mowed
And his grass was green
And the driveway was edged
And all the shrubs were trimmed so perfectly
I had a crush on his wife
And I played ball with his son
I pondered how much money he made
Went inside and turned the TV on

And he was layin'
In an overflowing bathtub of red water
The first and the last time he ever relaxed
And they said
He had a smile on his face
His final offer
The steam on the mirror said one more thing to say

I was watching TV
Watching one of Mom's famous rice krispie treats
Watchin' Tom and Jerry
I heard a car horn beep
I ran to the window
His wife and son were home
With bags of stuff they got at the mall
I went in my room and got my glove and ball
I leapt off the steps
And asked his son could he played
And his son looked at his wife and his wife told his son
I guess it'll be ok
That beautiful woman
She walked in that beautiful house
When I realized I forgot my hat I said I'll be back and turned around

And he was laying
In an overflowing bathtub of red water
The first and the last time he ever relaxed
And they said
He had a smile on his face
His final offer
The steam on the mirror said I got one more thing to say

There was screaming
There was crying
There was sirens
I thought I was dreamin'
And the sun was shinin'
It was a beautiful day
The wife was talking to an officer
And through the noise I heard her say

And he was laying
In an overflowing bathtub of red water
The first and the last time he ever relaxed
And they said
He had a smile on his face
His final offer
The steam on the mirror said
I got one more thing to say

And he was laying
In an overflowing bathtub of red water
The first and the last time he ever relaxed
And they said
He had a smile on his face
His final offer
The steam on the mirror said

And he was laying
In an overflowing bathtub of red water
The first and the last time he ever relaxed
And they said
He had a smile on his face
His final offer
The steam on the mirror said I got one more thing to say
