Homes don't just inspire us to renovate, redecorate, and remodel. They also are just as likely to inspire the lyrics of musicians as well. Over the years thousands of lyrics have been written that reference houses and homes. See if you can identify the title and artist of these songs.
Can You Identify These Songs About Houses?
There's a green one and a pink one/And a blue one and a yellow one/And they're all made out of ticky-tacky/And they all look just the same
They're growing houses in the fields between the towns/And the Starlight drive-in movie's closing down/The road is gone to the way it was before/And the spaces won't be spaces anymore
There's a black man with a black cat livin' in a black neighborhood/He's got an interstate runnin' through his front yard/You know he thinks that he's got it so good
My new house/Keep away from my new house/Wash the drawers of pills/It's got window sills/With lead centered in the middle of them/My new house is no beatnik hang-out
In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home/With a couple of kids running in the yard/Of Desmond and Molly Jones . . . (Ha ha ha ha ha)
I want to be stereotyped/I want to be classified/I want to be a clone/I want a suburban home
Our house, in the middle of our street/Our house, in the middle of our /Our house it has a crowd/There's always something happening/And it's usually quite loud
Home man.. hey.. let's turn this house into a happy home/This for all the homeboys that couldn't get they happy home/Let's turn this house into a happy home/Long as one of us got it, some of us got it/Let's turn this house into a happy home
But everybody's scared of this place/They're staying away/Your little house on memory lane
Our house is a very, very fine house/With two cats in the yard/Life used to be so hard/Now everything is easy/'Cause of you
