This old place well it's seen some sights, well
It's been a sharehouse for fifteen years

And I don't know if it's time to go
Or if I should stay here for one more year

I can't sleep coz the walls are shaking
My housemates keeping me up all night

The roof is leaking, the doors won't close
But at least we know we're in Collingwood

The doors are banging and creaking, the walls and the paint are peeling
We can't really afford to stay but we'll stick around for one more day
I just wanted some shuteye, but I'm not getting much sleeping
I can't keep from losing my socks but we're all living in Collingwood

I tried begging and I tried reason
They're yelling and moaning and turning on the lights

The walls are thin, I can't block the din of my
Housemates keeping me up all night

I'm like Noah Taylor in an crusty old sharehouse
In Queensland, but it's a whole lot more cold

And raining, the rent that we're paying
It's about a thousand bucks a minute
That's why we have to play this song so fast

But we're real close to where all our friends live
It's all the rage here in Collingwood
