Liner Notes: 

This is the last song. Finally. I have waited for this moment for six years. I'm so happy that I made it and also I'm relieved that's it's over. Now my thumbs get the rest they deserve. They've been aching every once in a while because of all that playing of instruments and using computer keyboard and mouse.

Thanks to John @oneslowtyper for the lyrics. His support and easy-to-put-into-music-lyrics have been invaluable. Thanks to all collaborator-lyricists and especially big thanks to those musicians who demoed my lyrics. You know who you and they are. Just look at the song list on my profile page and they're there. I couldn't have done it without you all.

I'll be around to reply the comments for the next couple weekends. I've given 451 comments now and I might be crazy enough to try to make it 500. 50 songs done and 500 comments given. It has a nice symmetry to it. Smile

Big thank you for all who have listened and commented on my songs. I've been concentrating on winning and I haven't been able to reply to every comment but I still appreciate every single one them and every single one of you. Hugsy hugs to everybody. And kissy kisses to Eric, Jenny and Burr and everyone on the 50/90 team that has made this all possible.

Lyrics: 

Klaus is in the House

There’s stacks of dirty laundry
And the beer is running dry
The sink is full of dishes
And the wife’s about to cry

The food has all been eaten
Not a crumb left for a mouse
There has to be a reason
It’s cause Klaus is in the house…

KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!
KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!
KLAUS IS IN THE
KLAUS IS IN THE
KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!

The T.V. has one channel
And it plays sports all the time
The yard outside needs mowing
All the grass is now sky-high

You can not blame the children
And you can not blame the spouse
There has to be a reason
It’s cause Klaus is in the house…

KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!
KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!
KLAUS IS IN THE
KLAUS IS IN THE
KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!

( "High-energy" solo )

When he’s making music
He needs so much time to play…
He may forget to pay some bills
And stays up way too late

And he might just reach 50
If his thumbs will just hold out
The music is real pleasin’
not that Klaus is in the house…

KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!
KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!
KLAUS IS IN THE
KLAUS IS IN THE
KLAUS IS IN THE HOUSE!!

This is infectiously fun. The lyrics are very funny and self-aware, and I love the energy.

Well done on the song. Well done on the target. Commiserations to the spouse.

LMAO!! This was just the perfect way to celebrate your achievement, Klaus. I had such a big smile, listening along to this happy, happy, funny, funny song!
I'm so glad you made it to 50, after all the hard work you put in!
I said I would raise a beer to your success... and I'm doing that right now, as I type away.
Cheers,
John

I guess klaus is in the bonza clouds as we speak. I really dig your stuff and I will definitely go back to see what you did this summer. I don't really want to know what goes on when the klaus is out of the house.

Oh, this begins like a triumph. I'm listening to the chorus now..sounds legendary already..coming again, yes! You made it to 50 songs and you end in style. Reading the lyrics now the song is over... I find that line 'there has to be a reason' to be very funny in the context of the whole song. Yeah, this is very nice, I love it all the way through.
