There's a house at the top of a tree
There's a house at the top of a tree
In the house there's a room
In the room there's a chair
And sitting in the chair is you

There's a nose at the end of a snout of a dog
With his head out the window of a car
That's driving away from the tree

And at the top of a tree there's a house
And in the house there's a room
And in the room there's a chair
And in the chair is you

There's a plan to eat the house
In the mind of a mouse in the woods
And the mouse in the woods has a smell that's detected
By the nose at the end of a snout of a dog
And the dog has his head out the window of a car
And the car is driving away from the tree

And at the top of a tree there's a house
And in the house there's a room
And in the room there's a chair
And in the chair is you

There are no more potato chips left
In the empty bag in your hand
And the crumpling sound of the empty bag
Makes the mice get mad and when the mice get mad
It leads to a plan to eat the house

And the plan's in the mind of the mouse in the woods
And the mouse in the woods has a smell that's detected
By the nose at the end of a snout of a dog
And the dog has his head out the window of a car
And the car is driving away from the tree

And at the top of a tree there's a house
And in the house there's a room
And in the room there's a chair
And in the chair is you

And the reason there are no more chips
In the empty bag in your hand
Is that the crumpling sound of the empty bag
Makes the mice get mad which leads to a plan to eat the house

But just in time the dog arrives to give to the mouse
The potato chips that you took from the bag
And gave to the dog to deliver to the mouse
So the mouse would not eat you
