Leverage House Rules – Season 1

House Rules

Some music videos are just a given. That’s what I thought after hearing Christian Kane’s “The House Rules” and watching him as Eliot on the Leverage TV show.

A friend pointed me to Christian Kane>‘s website where you can get “The House Rules” mp3 for free. After listening to it a couple dozen times, it was obvious this should be a Leverage> mv.

I only used scenes from Leverage Season 1, and plan to cut another mv to this song using scenes from Leverage Season 2, once it is available on DVD. And again for Season 3, since they have been renewed for another season (yay!)

And for any Leverage fan who doesn’t know about it, the convention Con-the-Con> is coming up in mid-March in Portland, OR. Actors, writers, executive producers and professional confidence men are gathering for a weekend of fannish fun in support of this fabulous TV show. Come join us!

Special thanks to Christian Kane for the song, and Dean Devlin for the show.

LYRICS:
So you’re tired and beat
And you’ve worked all week
And you need a place you can let it go.
Where the girls go wild
And the boys play hard
And you need a little more than just the radio.
Well here’s your open invitation
With just a couple regulations.
Let me warn you son, only come to have fun
We don’t take kindly to serious.
So leave your troubles at the door
Unless you want some in here.

Welcome to my house, buckle up tight
Everybody sings and drinks, laughs & gets high.
It’s a country music, a little soul, it’s a rock ‘n roll rodeo.
We don’t tolerate no sitting around
Everybody’s dancin’, groovin’ and getting on down.
So before you come in here with some kind of attitude
You better read the house rules.

Around eleven o’clock when the front door locks
And the boys start raising the bottle.
Where the girls do the thing with the Mardis Gras beads
Yeah, You know they’re gonna show ’em if they got ’em.
No matter what your story, a good time is mandatory.
Well rule number 7 says don’t touch the women
But they can grab whatever they want to.

Welcome to my house, buckle up tight
Everybody sings and drinks, laughs & gets high.
It’s a country music, a little soul, it’s a rock’ n roll rodeo.
We don’t tolerate no sitting around
Everybody’s dancing,’ groovin’ and getting on down.
So before you come in here with some kind of attitude
You better read the house rules.

No such thing as last call.
We pick’ em up when they fall .
We share the same bathroom stall,
Says the sign on the wall. (1, 2, 3)

Welcome to my house, buckle up tight
Everybody sings and drinks, laughs & gets high.
It’s a country music, a little soul, it’s a rock n roll rodeo.
We don’t tolerate no sitting around
Everybody’s dancin’, groovin’ and getting on down.
So before you come in here with some kind of attitude
Boy, before you come a walkin’ in here with any kind of attitude
You better read the house rules.

You better read the house rules.
