Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired, she needs a rest, the kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep (aaaah)
Brother's got a date to keep, he can't hang around

Our house in the middle of our street
Our house in the middle of our...

Our house, it has a crowd
There's always something happening and it's usually quite loud
Our Mum, she's so house proud
Nothing ever slows her down and a mess is not allowed

Our house in the middle of our street
Our house in the middle of our...
Our house in the middle of our street
(Something tells you that you've got to move away from it)
Our house in the middle of our...

Father gets up late for work
Mother has to iron his shirt, then she sends the kids to school
Sees them off with a small kiss (aaah)
She's the one they're going to miss in lots of ways

Our house in the middle of our street
Our house in the middle of our...

I remember way back then when everything was true
And when we would have such a very good time
Such a fine time, such a happy time
And I remember how we'd play, simply waste the day away
Then we'd say nothing would come between us - two dreamers

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired, she needs a rest, the kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep, he can't hang around

Our house in the middle of our street
Our house in the middle of our street
Our house in the middle of our street
Our house in the middle of our...

Our house was our castle and our keep
Our house in the middle of our street
Our house that was where we used to sleep
Our house in the middle of our street

Our house in the middle of our street
Our house...
