And he sings when he mops
Seems to help him a lot
Where there's uneven stairs
Mr. Landlord is there

Well, he mops all day
Can't get away too long
And when he's through
There's windows too

Then Nellie comes to see him
With a straight face, she comes to see him
And taking her favorite pen from her pocket
She writes it down, the things that she's found

And he always, sometimes gets a little nervous
'Cause he'd like for her to stay for a day

Would you care for a drink
"This is business", says she
Tell me where are the vents
For these apartments

So they go upstairs
To inspect air
The air is good
It's really good up there

She's glad that he cares so much
About the safety of electrical outlets
And taking her favorite pen from her pocket
She writes it down, the things that she's found

And she always sometimes gets a little nervous
'Cause she'd like to stay with him for a day
