Lyrics

Saw the agent take down the sign

Paula pours a glass of wine

Keeping watch the house sits empty

She embraces her role as the neighborhood sentry

She decided to skip the cul de sac cookout

The chair on her porch makes the perfect lookout

As the sun starts to set around the corner she sees

A pair of headlights, and she starts to wheeze

The vehicle pulls into the driveway next door

She jumps from her chair as her glass hits the floor

Grabs the megaphone that the cheerleader lent her

Gotta warn the neighbors about the renters

The renters are coming

The renters are coming

Waddling down the street, shouting her warning

The renters are coming

The renters are coming

Storm clouds are already forming

Don’t let your children play with the kids of the renters

You never know for sure just why they were sent here

The ones from last year, it was easy to tell

They must have been a part of a terrorist cell

When buyers move in she always bakes them a cake

But with renters she knows that would be a mistake

They usually can’t afford to take care of their lawn

After wrecking the house, you know they’ll be gone

So it’s

One if by van

Two if you see

A car jam packed with some poor family

The renters are coming

The renters are coming

The renters are coming

Rolling down the street, shouting her warning

The renters are coming

The renters are coming

Fearful opinions are already forming

They buy all their stuff from the goodwill centers

She knows all about the problems with renters

Renting lets them live well above their station

They think of it like an extended vacation

The renters are coming

The renters are coming

Stumbling down the street, shouting her warning

The renters are coming

The renters are coming

Superior feelings are already forming
