Leak to Leak       

 Lyrics by Dave Davies

(To the tune of “Cheek to Cheek”

Irving Berlin 1935)

 

Inspecting, we’re inspecting -

And we’re looking for a cracked and broken joist

Or anything in general that is moist

When we’re out inspecting leak to leak to leak.

 

Inspecting, we’re inspecting -

And we sigh when we can find a GFI

Those saggy rafters want to make us cry

When we’re out inspecting leak to leak to leak.

 

          Oh the plumbing is mind numbing

          Do I see another leak?

          Maybe I’ll just check my file

          I think I saw this place last week.

 

          Oh the agent’s got a cousin,         

          Whose ex-wife has a sister-in-law

          Who is waiting rather breathlessly

          To see if we will find a flaw.

 

             Oh, come with me

                   to all the darkest places -

                   Cobwebby crawlspaces

                   we think that you’ll love -

 

Inspecting, we’re inspecting -

And the kind of things we find may make you weep

But our long report may just put you  to sleep

Yes we’re out inspecting leak to leak to leak.
