He don't need no sedatives
To ease his troubled mind
At work he is invariably
Unpleasant and unkind

Why should he care
If he is hated in his home?

'Cause he's got a house in the country
And a big sports car
He's got a house in the country
And a big sports car
But he ain't gotta home, oh no

And he's as wicked as he can be
'Cause he's got a house in the country
Where he likes to spend his weekend days
Oh yeah, oh yeah, well, all right

Well, he got his job when drunken Daddy
Tumbled down the stairs
From that very day this boy
Is more than having his share

One of these days I'm gonna
Knock him off of his throne

'Cause he's got a house in the country
And a big sports car
He's got a house in the country
And a big sports car
And he's oh so smug, oh yeah

He's got everything he needs
'Cause he's got a house in the country
Where he likes to spend his weekend days
Oh yeah, oh yeah, well, all right

And he's oh so smug, oh yeah
He's got everything he needs

'Cause he's got a house in the country
And a big sports car
He's got a house in the country
And a big sports car
But he's socially dead, oh yeah

And it don't matter much to him
'Cause he's got a house in the country
Where he likes to spend his weekend days
Oh yeah, oh yeah, well all right

House in the country
House in the country
House in the country
House in the country
House in the country
