Our House Lyrics

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep

    It’s about homelessness and lamenting the perfect middle class life that was before a lay-off or other financial catatirophy that put the family on the street hence the past tense at the end and the double meaning of living “in the middle of the street”.

    "The knocking-on-the-door bit where somebody comes out, goes, 'Where are they?' and the others sneak in and close the door… That's The Flintstones. We stole lots of ideas from the Keystone Kops and Benny Hill." (most interpretations from songfacts) No need to know
