The Ballad of Mao Lee

You came into our house

looking for a home

and now, Mao Lee,

you’re all alone.

Came into our house,

looking for a home.

You got the home;

so alone.

Culkin’s on the sidewalk

gazing in at you,

there’s no marbles on the staircase,

no burglars feeling blue.

We thought we did you a favour

by giving you a home,

then we moved out –

you’re all alone.

Your texts came thick.

Your texts came fast

a lonely ship with a white half mast.

We were just moving house,

you were just moving in,

it’s not quite how friendships begin.

We were just moving house,

you were just moving in.

It not quite how most friendships begin.

Mao Lee’s at the window,

Mao Lee’s at the door,

we were just moving house

but she wanted more.

You came into our house

looking for a home.

Now, Mao Lee, you’re all alone.
