Handy Man

I roll up my sleeves and embrace a brand new day

my hands obey the brain, in the rain

I hear her call but I'm not stopping

she says I'm gonna' carve my own coffin

but it's my fundamental instinct, it's my way to leave an imprint

showing my love through sweet completion, sweet completion.

 

To simplify my lady's labour and remain within her favour

to guarantee my lady's comfort, let her lead her life unhampered

glory in the home, glory in the marriage handy man and home mechanic

glory in the home, glory in the marriage I'm a handy man, that's my dynamic

 

our home is snugly warm or pleasantly cool

at the mere turn of a knob and according to the season

when she uses them knobs I lose all reason.

A folding horse for her finer garments, a handy shelf for the storage of parchments,

not to mention the crazy paving that I'm still laying

 

I know that idle ways are sinful that is why I've had a skinful

it's a message from my great grandfather, something I just hold in my genes

you'll only reap just what you sew, that is what my mum once said

I'll skin the bark right off a tree I'm the king of husbandry

glory in the home, glory in the marriage handy man and home mechanic

glory in the home, glory in the marriage I'm a handy man, that's my dynamic

all for the view of sweet completion...
