From the series “Diary Of An Unemployed Youth”

Can you lock the door after me?
It’s actually not a request
You’ve got no choice
You’re the only one left in the house

Come and open the gate
I’m going out, I won’t be late
Make sure your phone is on
When I’m back I’ll give you a call, uhn?

Keep your ears open
Someone is coming over
If you hear a knock on the gate
Dash there, don’t hesitate

With an unemployed guy around
We don’t need a gateman
He’s literally housebound
He’s our very own handyman.
