Our House - Madness
=============================
INTRO . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Fa-ther wears his Sun-day best

Moth-er's tired she needs a rest
The kids are play-ing up down-stairs

Sis-ter's sigh-ing in her sleep
Broth-er's got a date to keep,

He can't hang a-round

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our...

Our house, it has a crowd
There's al-ways

some-thing hap-pen-ing
and it's us-ual-ly quite loud

Our mum she's so house-proud
Noth-ing ev-er slows her down

and a mess is not al-lowed

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our...

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our...

Fa-ther gets up late for work
Mo-ther has to iron his shirt

Then she sends
the kids to school

Sees them off with a small kiss
She's the one they're going

to miss in lots of ways

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our...

I rem-em-ber way back then when
ev-ery-thing was true and when
we would have such a ve-ry

good time, such a fine time
Such a hap-py time....

And I re-member how we'd
play sim-ply waste the day a-way

Then we'd say no-thing would
come be-tween us two dream-ers

Fa-ther wears his Sun-day best
Moth-er's tired she needs a rest
The kids are play-ing up down-stairs

Sis-ter's sigh-ing in her sleep
Broth-er's got a date to keep
He can't hang a-round

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our...

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our...

Our house,
was our cas-tle and our keep

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
That was where we used to sleep

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our...

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street

Our house,
in the mid-dle of our street
