Doug Wintch: Music

T. H. D'peau

You know how folks use the pronunciation "Tarjay" to lend an air of faux class to their purchases from Target?Same deal... T. H. D'peau = The. Home. Depot.  Get it?

I stole the idea from an old girlfriend...seems like she also inspired a song about digging up some roses.

I’ve never seen such a space age toilet

Didn’t I tell you we got a bidet

Squirts warm water, right where it oughta

Jack and I went all the way

And who put in that sky light

Is that alder around the mirror

I love your granite, who helped you plan it

It’s just Formica dear

     The job was over Ace’s head    

     We had to keep the cost down low

     We’re working with a new designer

     By the name of T.H. D'peau

Dale and I should do our bathroom

Our tile’s starting to stink

The kids need closets...you ought to see the moss

That’s growing underneath our sink

You can’t tell me that’s Pergo

It looks like the real Bamboo

It’s called Manitoba Maple

Jack and I installed that too

   Chorus

     You couldn’t have done this by yourselves

     It looks completely pro

     Maybe I could get the number

     Is T.H. anyone I’d know?

Well, there’s Forrest, he’s in lumber

And Stanley in the tool corral

Amber the saint, mixed our paint

And there’s Tiffany the lighting gal

And Octavio he speaks plumbing

In windows you want Buck

The smile and the orange apron

Always seems to say good luck

     The job was over Ace’s head

     We had to keep the cost down low

     We’re working with a new designer

     By the name of T.H. D'peau

     Whom I hope by now you know
