They Might Be Giants – I Am Not Your Broom lyrics

Now broom you must now sweep for me
The dust it fills my room

No john i will not sweep for you
For i am not your broom

What nonsense are you speaking broom?
My words you must obey

Another life awaits me
And im leaving you today
I am not your broom
I am not your broom
I've had enough im throwin off
My chains of servitude
I am not your broom
I am not your broom
No longer must i sweep for you
For i am not your broom

    Tmbg will always be remembered as a ground breaker in music, doing what they wanted and felt was right, as opposed to caving in to inane demands from record companies. Every song is more intelligent, creative, and often even funnier than it at first appears. This small example is no exception. Although they themselves are very modest, I have no problem stating the obvious. They might be giants changed what we think of as alternative rock from the moment they became known. The john's are, in a word, brilliant.
