One Saturday night in mid June
My hubby and I cozy in our room.
On the Web we searched for a house to buy
Seven months of looking, it's true, no lie.
A new listing we were excited to come across
Call the realtor now, we can't bare another loss.
A bank-owned home that was priced to sell
And everything about it looked really swell.
This house we saw, this house we loved
The bidding war is on and push came to shove.
We lost the bid to someone with cash
Our dreams were gone, they were gone with a flash.
But then we heard there really wasn't any doe
Our bid is back in and here we go!
Our offer was the highest, yes it's true,
The joy in our hearts, it grew and grew.
Praying and hoping everything would work out,
With it in the bank's hands we had some doubt.
We waited for months or maybe just weeks
Our friends prob'ly thought we were really big freaks.
And finally last Thursday on August thirteenth,
WE CLOSED, HORRAY! Before the fourteenth.
And now some remodeling to the house we will do,
A makeover of such, so it looks brand new!
The packing I started and hope to have done
By the time we move, this part's not so fun.
By Labor Day we hope to be in our new home
Hello Glendale, ready or not, and here we come!
