    Maintenance Man

    Excuse me…
    Is this the Maintenance Man?
    I found your listing in the phone book
    And I was wondering if you could do some work for me?
    You see I have a lot of repairs to make
    And I need an expert
    The last man I had take a look at the problem,
    Well, he kind of botched it and
    Broke a lot more than he fixed
    I’ll try my best not cast my low expectations on you
    Because of the job he did
    This will be a labor intense undertaking and will
    Require much of your time and patience

    As you can see my faith in the opposite sex has been shattered
    I have a spirit that has been trampled on
    My mind is weary from all the games that were played with it
    I need a new smile to replace the frown I always wear
    My eyes can’t seem to stay dry because tears escape through an unidentified leak
    My heart…well I can’t diagnose it on my own
    But I know that’s where most of the damage is

    I know that it sounds like a lot of work
    You might have to put in some overtime
    To even begin to heal the invisible scars
    But I heard you were the best
    And the best is what I deserve
    So, Mr. Maintenance Man
    When can you start?
