lyrics

It’s early in the morning
My family’s sleeping still
Quiet, calm, and quiet content
Beneath the soffit sill

In a moment they’ll awake
With no reason to exclaim
They’ll begin another boring day
Where everything’s the same

Nothing ever happens underneath the water spout
Life’s about as entertaining as a brussel sprout
Noone wonders, noone dreams, noone ever doubts
Cause nothing ever happens underneath the water spout

The same old breakfast everyday
The same old boring games
The jokes are stale and so mundane
Because they’re all the same.

Noone’s really happy
But noone’s ever sad
And while thing’s could be better
They’re never really bad
Cause nothing ever happens underneath the water spout
You’re never up-and-at-‘em but you’re never knocked-about
“Be happy where you are”
Is what my family likes to tout
Cause nothing ever happens underneath the water spout

And so hours go by
And days go by
And weeks go by
And years go by
And centuries and centuries and centuries and centuries

And noone ever changes
And nothing ever will
Everything remains the same
Beneath the soffit sill

Sometimes it drives me crazy
And makes me want to shout
That nothing ever happens
No nothing ever happens

Nothing’s ever gonna happen
Underneath the waterspout
