VP_001265 Verse 1Down in my cellar, down in my cellar, I've been changing ev'rything around, I've a secret hidden there, I'll guard it with my life, There's only one mistake I made I told it to my wife. Chorus 1Now ev'rybody wants a key to my cellar, my cellar, my cellar, People who before wouldn't give me a tumble, Even perfect strangers are begining to grumble, 'Cause I won't let them have a key to my cellar, They'll never get in just let them try. They can have my money, They can have my car, They can have my wife If they want to go that far, But they can't have the key that opens my cellar, If the whole darn world goes dry. Verse 2Down in my cellar, down in my cellar, I've been having parties ev'ry night, People that I never knew come up and talk to me, They're trying hard to find out where I hang my cellar key.
