The insect-headed worker-wife will hang her waspies on the line;
The husband burns his paper, sucks his pipe while studying their cushion-floor;
His viscous poly-paste breath comes out,
Their wall-paper world is shattered by his shout,
A boy in blue is busy banging out a headache on the kitchen door

And all the while Graham slept on,
Dreaming of a world where he could do just what he wanted to

No thugs in our house, are there dear?
We made that clear,
We made little Graham promise us he'd be a good boy

No thugs in our house, are there dear?
We made that clear,
The insect-headed worker-wife will hang her waspies on the line;
The husband burns his paper, sucks his pipe while studying their cushion-floor;
His viscous poly-paste breath comes out,
Their wall-paper world is shattered by his shout,
A boy in blue is busy banging out a headache on the kitchen door

And all the while Graham slept on,
Dreaming of a world where he could do just what he wanted to

No thugs in our house, are there dear?
We made that clear,
We made little Graham promise us he'd be a good boy

No thugs in our house, are there dear?
We made that clear,
