oh, yeah... canalwheeler is right on...

the song really has two levels... and I remember one home that the owner dared paint some offbeat, vibrant color that "just wasn't done" and had the neighbors trying to change the building code to forbid such horrible behavior in the future.

And then there was the guy who banished his own kids to play in the street or with the neighbors, because his lawn was too precious to use as a yard. Nice to know where the priorities lie.
