Go jump in the lake
Go ride up the hill

Get out of this house

It's a house of your making
It's a house of ill will

Get out of this house

Go listen to Buddha
Go listen to Joe

Get out of this house

If anyone asks
You tell them you don't know

Get out of this house

I spent eleven long years
In a hot house zone
I spent twenty-nine more
Tryin' to get home

Well, I never got home
But I did what I did
And I got myself this house
And you can't come in on, yeah

Get out of this house
Get out of this house

I'm the queen of my castle
I'm the king of my room

Get out, get out of this house

I got more than I need
More than I ever could use

Get out, get out of this house

I spent seventeen years
Trying to save my soul
I spent twenty-three more
Down in the hole

Now my soul is alright
But I might get found out
And I got myself this house now
And I can't get out, out

Get out of this house
Get out of this house

If I see you again
It will be in my head at the end of a cloud
If you see me again
It will be in your head telling you to get out

You act like a baby
You talk like a fool

Get out of this house

Go back to your mama
Go back to high school

But get out of this house

Go jump in the lake
Go jump out the door

Get out, get out of this house

I've had all I can stand
And I can't stand no more

Get out, get out of this house

Get out of this house
