Better Get Up Them Stairs (Tommy's Blues) © Nigel Quin [Verse 1] I was walking round the house one morning When I thought I heard a little noise So I decided to investigate ‘cause I’m one of the boys I saw a bit of fluff in the corner So I gave it a little shove Then two beady eyes turned to look at me And I thought “Heavens above…… - It’s a mouse!” [Chorus 1] I better get up them stairs I know it’s the place to be Better get up them stairs Don’t want no rodent hassling me [verse 2] Later I was out in the garden Sleeping under a tree When out came the Mommy Monster With some food that’s not for me So I sneaked right up behind her And pretended I was Robin Cook Then I trod on something slimy But I was too chicken to look…. – “It’s a slug!” [Chorus 2] I better get up them stairs I know it’s the place to be Better get up them stairs Don’t want no mollusc following me [Middle] That night I went out the back door Just a coupla hours before dawn There was a spooky owl sitting on the fence And a fox on the lawn Suddenly I felt a kick up the backside And an arm around my neck Then I realised I’d been dreaming In the Mommy Monster’s bed So I went back down to the sofa And tried to make myself a little den Then two beady eyes turned to look at me And I screamed “Oh not again….. It’s that mouse!” [Chorus 1] I better get up them stairs I know it’s the place to be Better get up them stairs Don’t want no rodent hassling me [Chorus 3] Oh, I better get up them stairs Where I’ll be safe and sound I better get up them stairs Even though I’ll still get kicked around
