But it's alright
Cause we all need a place to call home
It's alright
Yes we all need a room of our own
I can still remember packed together
Like a can of sardines
No, no, no
Pushin', shovin'
That's when lovin'
Starts to come apart at the seams
Oh no, no, no, no

You've done it now Bubbee!

When I get home tonight I will unleash the power of Bobby Goldsboro!

Also, I forget who did the song with the opening line "I know you don't want this, neither do we". Tonight I'll take the trouble to look it up.

Also: Most nauseating schmaltz from Broadway.

Well he robbed his way from Utah to Oklahoma
and the law just could not seem to track him down


(not much of an answer, but probably about as accurate to the Zodiac Killer as it was to the song's purportive subject)

OK gnome, here goes ... :P



Turns out that wasn't the first line but I found it anyway. Didn't know Glen Campbell covered it, but that version is even more nauseating.



Bobby Goldsboro ...
