Once upon a marriage in a corner of the world
I knew happiness, I had a girl
The one day the world turned black
I can fell you know you're on my back
I can fell you know you're on my back
One afternoon I saw the truck
Gone went you're apron
Goodbye went luck

How did it feel with my eyes against the world
It felt pretty much like a wooden world
It felt pretty much like a wooden world

Take these tables, take these chairs
Left by the windows, left by the stairs

Second hand furniture
Second hand furniture

So what did I do with the rest of my life
I wandered around missing my wife

How did it feel with my eyes against the world
It felt pretty much like a wooden world
It felt pretty much like a wooden world

Well, once upon a winter in another town
I walked around against what I found
There in the window in a naked light

I saw our bed in the window light
I saw our bed in the window light

Take these tables, take these chairs
Left by the windows, left by the stairs

Second hand furniture
Second hand furniture

There were four chairs my mamma left me
There was a Persian carpet with its weave gone bare
There was kitchen utensils sitting out getting rusty
One bookshelf all painted blue
Something all the way from Kenya made out of Mahogany
There was a kitchen stove of the Kelvinator variety
There was four front steps
There was five back steps
There was a linoleum floor with geometric arrangement of colors and lines
There was two lampshades and a door that wouldn't open on the front door

Take these tables, take these chairs
Left by the windows, left by the stairs

Second hand furniture
Second hand furniture

Oahu home sweet home
Oahu home sweet home
Oahu home sweet home
