When you find that there are routine maintenance tasks to be done at home ,,,,you have quite a job to find anyone!!

Why is it when....

Why is it when you want a job done
You will find that your life is far from fun
Maybe you'll find a leak in your sink
You thumb yellow pages and stop to think

Now can I recall what he was like before
Can't remember when he was last at my door
I remember he drank loads of sugary tea
Then he charged me the earth oh deary me

I am going to buy myself a tool kit
For that will keep me healthy and fit
I will come round your house and do any job
You can trust me my friend your purse I'll not rob

I will mend anything that needs a repair
Window or door or a broken chair
Then if things go wrong tomorrow or when
I will vanish ....not to be seen again!

You think it's easy to vanish with my money. I'll search heaven and earth to find you and get my money back. I;ll do whatever it takes to find you.
Just kidding. Enjoyed this piece.
