play Some Houses

from What Kind Of Cat Are You?!

SOME HOUSES! SOME HOUSES! SOME HOUSES! SOME HOUSES!

Some houses are made of wood; bang on them and they sound good!
I live in a big kalimba; bang on them like a big marimba!
They come from trees, which came from seeds, which grow out of THE
GROUND!
Which lives in a house that's spinning 'round and 'round
If you get dizzy, get out into the sun
And bang on the door of the house where your house comes from!

Some houses are made of metal; bang on them they sound incredible!
I live in a big tin can; bang on them like a steel drum band!
They come from iron, which came from ore, which came from mines,
which came from rocks, which came from THE GROUND!
Which lives in a house that's spinning 'round and 'round
If you get dizzy, get out into the sun
And bang on the door of the house where your house comes from!

Some houses are made of plastic; bang on them they sound fantastic!
I live in a styrene dome; bang on them and call 'em home!
They come from plastic, which came from petrochemicals,
which came from oil, which came from Saudi Arabia, which came
from THE GROUND!
Which lives in a house that's spinning 'round and 'round
If you get dizzy, get out into the sun
And bang on the door of the house where your house comes from!

Some houses are made of cloth; rub on them they might fall off!
I live in a cotton weave; rub on them like the rustling leaves!
They come from cotton, which came from plants,
which came from seeds, which came from THE GROUND!
Which lives in a house that's spinning 'round and 'round
If you get dizzy, get out into the sun
And bang on the door of the house where your house comes from!

Some houses are made of flesh; bang on them and speak gibberish!
I live in a house of skin; squeeze yourself like an accordion!
You came from your parents, who came from their parents,
who came from their parents, who all came from THE GROUND!
Which lives in a house that's spinning 'round and 'round
If you get dizzy, get out into the sun
And bang on the door of the house where your house comes from!
