I dance around this empty house
Tear us down, throw you out
Screaming down the halls
Spinning all around and now we fall

Pictures framing up the past
Your taunting smirk behind the glass
This museum full of ash
Once a tickle, now a rash

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down, down, down
I'm gonna burn it down

9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun

Echoes knocking on locked doors
All the laughter from before
I'd rather live out on the street
Than in this haunted memory

I've called the movers, called the maids
We'll try to exorcise this place
Drag my mattress to the yard
Crumble, tumble house of cards

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down, down, down

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down, down, down
I'm gonna burn it down

9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun

I'm crawling through the doggy door
My key don't fit my life no more
I'll change the drapes, I'll break the plates
I'll find a new place, burn this f****are down

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, da, da, da, da

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(9, 8)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(7, 6)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(5, 4, 3)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(2, 1)

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down, down, down

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down, down, down
I'm gonna burn it down

    I love this song! And I love pink! This song is about her talking about her marriage when it was separated. She obviously still lives in their house while the husband is gone. She is talking about the present and relating it to the past. How their past is like a haunted memory to her because they were getting a divorce. I am so happy they are bacl together. Lovebug, yeah I agree the music video was definitley eccentric, but I liked it. I thought it was fun. Pink looked like she enjoyed filming it and it explained the lyrics to the song very well. It brought the imagery to life.

    I think the meaning of this song is that she lived with her boyfriend/husband, and they used to get along well, but something happened, & now she just wants out. I know this feeling. I used to live with my bf, but then he F*ked up & all I wanted to do was burn his house down & leave. My favorite part is "pictures framing up the past, your taunting smirk behind the glass" b/c when I had to see the pictures of me & my ex, it was terrible b/c he had a smirk on his face in all of them!

    I think this song means a girl, alone, living in a house that's old, but she calls it home. At a fast pace, she finds out that it's beens takin' over, by evil clowns. It used to be fun to live here, when her parents were still around. Now she has to burn it down, and run away, and find a house that is luxurious fun, modern style. A decent place to live, at the most.
