Mousetrap
(Lyrics by Pat Gibson, Music by Mother’s Oven)

Well, it’s so easy going for the
Cheese when you’re a mousetrap
Stuck at the bottom

Well, it’s so breezy, we’ll roll in the leaves
As the summertime turns into autumn
As it turns into autumn

But you, like to spend your winter days
As your excuse to hibernate
And I hope you don’t lean on tradition

I tried my best to compromise
But I can see it in your eyes
And I hope that it fades

Well, it ain’t easy, looking for your keys
When you’re locked out
And you ain’t got ‘em

But it’s so easy to squash all the mice
When you’re on top
And they’re on the bottom
When they’re on the bottom

But you like to go your separate way
As your excuse to instigate
But I hope you don’t take it too far

Cuz’ I did my best to compromise
But I can see it in your eyes
And I hope that it fades
I hope that it fades

Now I think I’ve found a way
Through the maze, been lost for days
Cuz’ it’s so easy to get lost
In this godforsaken place

Through all the traps and turns
I keep going, never knowing
What’s in store

But I still burn for my cheese
And will forever more
Now and forever more

Well, it’s so easy to go for the
Cheese when you’re a mousetrap
Stuck at the bottom

Well, it’s so breezy, we’ll roll in the leaves
As the summertime turns into autumn
As it turns into autumn, yeah, aww
