You have... scratch you head in wonder, at some of these,
houses that were built, they had someone to please;
every shape, size and color, each one is unique,
that's what I'm going to show you, care to have a peek?

Some are made of stone, or in stone I might add,
but of these that are none, that I wish I had;
but they sure are different, each one has it's charm,
so, let's go and take a look; aww, what's the harm?

Top: In a rock!  That must be one long ladder hanging down, not for me.
Middle: The Pineapple House, it's in Scotland.
Bottom: This one is way up there; but I don't know where, Peru or China maybe.

Housing is...

...a specialty, I now realize,
some built in grand style, and whatever size;
in all shapes and uses, I'd never known,
but it's all true, as you will be shown.

Houses in shapes to individual tastes,
some of them I'd consider a waste;
but they're unique, as you will see,
so, I guess, whatever will be, will be.

Top: In South Korea, this house was built to resemble a toilet.
Middle: In Michigan, the Pickle Barrel house - Michigan packs more pickles than any other state.
Bottom: Fit for a czar?  I don't know, this one is in Utah.

We all....

...have to live somewhere, a house or a home,
so I've picked some places where you'd never need to roam;
nice peaceful houses, built with much care,
so why would these places, cause people to stare.

I'll admin they're not ordinary, like some houses are,
but if you could have one, sure you'd be a star,
the talk of the neighborhood, would be a likely bet,
so just pause and take a look. You ain't seen nothing yet!

Top: in Japan, and not by accident, the door is under the chimney.
Middle: in China, the door is in the cello, a man is on the steps inside.
Bottom: Thrown together in Russia, without explanation.

The truth... stranger than fiction, that's what we say,
and I have some strange things for you today,
some caused by nature, some caused by man;
it easy to see, who don't give a damn.

Leave things are they are, it's better that way,
don't try to beautify, so, what do you say?
Leave things to nature, then if by chance.... come out real good, I'll ask you to dance.

Top: Now you know why I said leave things alone!
Middle: That cloud is strange, or just a little different.
Bottom: A house between a rock and a hard place.

What.... the world is that thing,
fall from space, for Jupiter's ring?
Who made that, and what it is?
Strange stuff that among us is.

Fouled my speech up there I guess,
that's alright, unless I forget to dress,
thought you'd like to see some things,
that defy description, what the camera brings.

Top:  Any guess?  I think, but not for sure, it's retired aircraft at Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona, military planes, another guess, because of the difference in sizes.

Middle: A Russian tractor, is it for digging up trees?  Actually it's not real, it is the work of animators.  But it sure looks real to me.

Bottom:  There is a line or streak from top-left to bottom-right (at the point you see a flame or flash at the waters surface.  It's there if you look hard, scientist can't answer, may lightning, or a meteor, but something fell and hit the water.

If you....

...think I'm putting off finding a new subject,
you may be right.  Or just using this one is the object...
...I can't decide so I procrastinate too,
just trying for something to introduce you to.

It's really quite a subject, and very complex,
because I never know what I will find next;
because when you look for something, it's always very hard,
and it's always in the last place that you looked that makes it hard.

Why not start there in the first place, it could be right in view,
but we never start at the finish because we don't have a clue,
besides maybe it easier just to put it off,
and who are we to care, if the neighbors scoff?

Greeting cards even?

There's always...

...tomorrow, that is what I say,
Rome wasn't built in a day, I could use that 'play',
but I probably won't just say, I don't want to do it,
it's just a lot more fun to say, I'll get around to it.

They make those you know, little round ones of wood,
with "TUIT" printed on them, I guess to show you should,
so we can't use that phrase anymore, we'll have to change,
when we get a round TUIT, we need a new exchange.
