Terri Hendrix – My Own Place lyrics
I want a vintage bathtub with a circular curtain rod
Make it porcelain with brass claw feet
I want a shower that gushes a toilet that flushes
And I think I need a sink that doesn't leak
I want central air and central heat
In a good neighborhood on a good lil street
don't want no crack in my foundation or my neighbors doin crack
Make it everything I have and everything I lack
When this whole world is in my face
I want to shut the door and hide in my own place
I want instant credit give it to me honey
How am I gunna get it if you don't loan me the money
How am I gunna get it my american dream
If you give me the ice and you keep the cream
Your concrete world has gotta cut me some slack
I gotta climb out from between the cracks
With your interest rates this high high high
How am I ever gunna own what I buy
I want kitchen tile and hardwood floors
A brand new roof and a wrap around porch
I want a wooden deck underneath some trees
On a hill with a view I want to do what I please
Your concrete world has gotta rise from the dead
I gotta wake up in my own place in my own bed
With all the doors unlocked with all the windows open
With not a not a care not a not a care
Not a not a care inside of my head
Oh here I am you have to have been here to understand
You have to have been here and done this to see
That I need a payday I need a windfall I need to get the key to
My own place my own place
I want to shut the door and hide
In my own place
