The Great Weird Al Word Count

The Plumbing Song

Parody of "Baby Don't Forget My Number" and
"Blame It On The Rain" by Milli Vanilli
New lyrics by "Weird Al" Yankovic

Baby, I sure wish I could lend you a hand
But plumbing's one thing I don't understand
It's true (haven't got a clue)
B-b-b-baby, I can tell you've got a big problem
When I flush the john, then your shower goes on!
(Baby) Now what ya gonna do?
If Drano's a joke and your plunger is broke
Baby, call the mensch with the monkey wrench
(Baby) He'll be there for you
Shower's backing up (up, up)?
Water won't go down (down, down)?
Ba ba-b ba, ba ba-b ba baby
Don't forget my plumber
Ba ba-b ba, ba ba-b ba baby
Sink's been plugged up all summer
Ba ba-b ba, ba ba-b ba baby
Better call the plumber
He'll know what to do

Pipes been blowing up
Pipes been breaking down
And the carpet's soaked . . . right through
Ba ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba kitchen's flooded, too
Ba ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba, girl, you know it's true

B-b-b-betcha this guy makes more than my lawyer
If he works for one day, costs you half a year's pay
(Baby) He can be here by two
So if you've got cash, he'll be there in a flash
Makin' service calls in his overalls
(Baby) He'll do his best for you

Sewer's backing up (up, up)?
Got you feelin' down (down, down)?
Ba ba-b ba, ba ba-b ba baby
Don't forget my plumber
Ba ba-b ba, ba ba-b ba baby
Leaky pipes are a bummer
Ba ba-b ba, ba ba-b ba baby
Time to call the plumber
Maybe call a few

Gotta problem with plumbing?
Gotta blame it on something
Blame it on the drain that was cloggin', cloggin'
Blame it on the faucet that drips all night
If hairballs, grease and goo
Won't let the water through
Blame it on the drain, yeah, yeah

When I flush the john, now when I flush the john
It turns the shower on
(Roto-Rooter 6-5000 [six five thousand])
Ba ba-b ba baby
Baby call my plumber
He'll know what to do
