Hey

Disorder in the house
The tub runneth over
Plaster's falling down in pieces by the couch of pain

Disorder in the house
Time to duck and cover
Helicopters hover over rough terrain

Disorder in the house
Reptile wisdom
Zombies on the lawn staggering around

Disorder in the house
There's a flaw in the system
And the fly in the ointment's gonna bring the whole thing down

The floodgates are open
We've let the demons loose
The big guns have spoken
And we've fallen for the ruse

Disorder in the house
It's a fate worse than fame
Even the Lhasa Apso seems to be ashamed
''(You might wanna handle that one yourself)''

Disorder in the house
The doors are coming off the hinges
The earth will open and swallow up the real estate

I just got my paycheck
I'm gonna paint the whole town gray
Whether it's a night in Paris
Or a Fresno matinee

It's the home of the brave
And the land of the free
Where the less you know
The better off you'll be

Cut it
Wooh

Disorder in the house
All bets are off
I'm sprawled across the davenport of despair

Disorder in the house
I'll live with the losses
And watch the sundown through the portiere

Here we go
Alright

Huh, end this thing with style

Does anyone else interpret this song as commentary on the current state of the U.S. and the world as it relates to the U.S. rather than on personal wasting?
this tune just doesn't quite do it for me. I love bad singing, generally speaking, but for some reason I can't get into it with this tune. Also, it's a little too basic and it doesn't really have enough soul to support the weak performance. But not unlistenable
Hey Bill how about you give Zevon a rest for a while..??
This sounds like it should be on the soundtrack to some cheesy 80s teen movie, like some scene where the parents are gone and the kids are partying it up in the living room and zany shenanigans are going on, inevitably resulting in someone falling into the pool in the backyard ...

Funny! Actually Bob Dylan's vocals are far worse.
i love his thought about enjoying every sandwich, and i try to think about that as often as possible, but i can't enjoy my sandwich while listening to this song.

Sounds like Springsteen is the one dying.
How to live. How to die! Yeah!
Very raw and urgent. I like it. Just got the album today, and it\'s a bittersweet work.
I just don\'t get this. I mean, the song itself was ok, but the vocals are just terrible.
Warren's last album....Bye see you next time..thanks for the beat and the humor
Warren is a taste i haven't yet acquired :?
Thanks for the info Skindy.
(Looks at the playlists) Why are the last 5 songs I missed always better than the current ones?
Never heard this before. At first I thought it was actually a Keith Richards song with the rough voice and sloppy guitar.
Great song! Bill, thanks for the ongoing updates on Warren Zevon's illness, and for playing his material in the last several months. Prompted by Bill's info, I did a bit of digging and found that Zevon recorded this album after his lung cancer diagnosis, to "writ and record as many songs as possible in the weeks that lie ahead." Here's a link to a press release on Zevon and his diagnosis, on the Artemis Records web site: Artemis Records press release on Zevon Check out the following page on VH1's web site for info about the Zevon documentary they'll be airing on 8/24/03: VH1 Inside Out on Warren Zevon, Sun Aug 24, 2003 Also, Zevon's home page is here: Warren Zevon's web site
Awright!! Wonderful on first hearing. Springsteen contributes some great guitar work (and background vocals), but it\'s still Warren\'s show. Can\'t wait until next Tuesday\'s release date.
not so good
