Christian Kane - The House Rules Lyrics

So you're tired and you're beat
And you 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 and laughs and gets high.
It's a country music
A little soul,
It's a rock 'n roll rodeo.
We don't tolerate no sittin' around
Everybody's dancin', groovin' and gettin' on down.
So before you come in here with some kinda attitude
You better read the house rules.

Around 11 o'clock
When the front door locks
And the boys start raising the bottle,
Where the girls do the thing with the Mardi Gras beads
Yeah you know they're gonna show 'em if they got 'em.
And 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... (hahaha)

Welcome to my house
Buckle up tight
Everybody sings and drinks and laughs and gets high.
It's a country music
A little soul,
It's a rock 'n roll rodeo.
We don't tolerate no sittin' around
Everybody's dancin', groovin' and gettin' on down.
So before you come in here with some kinda attitude
You better read the house rules.

There's 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.

One, two, three!

Welcome to my house
Buckle up tight
Everybody sings and drinks and laughs and gets high.
It's a country music
A little soul,
Man, it's a rock 'n roll rodeo.
We don't tolerate no sittin' around
Everybody's dancin', groovin' and gettin' on down.
So before you come in here with some kinda attitude,
Boy before you come walking in here
With any kinda attitude
Lord, you better read the house rules!
Oh son you better read the house rules!

Two, three, JAY!

You better read the house rules.

'Cuse me,
Excuse me,
I'm gonna need to see some i.d. on that girl right there (hahaha)

    Devil’s Daughter


  13. Zim zimmer

    Any time I think of Leverage, I come here for my 5 minute fix.

  14. DeAnne Hilton

    I like this video better.You and T.J. Courtney should play golf and talk.

  15. John Mesic


  16. Jonathan Bingham

    I love your music my wife loves you never stop

  17. Games & Entertainment Animator & Fiddler

    Dang! Two minutes Six seconds for that opening Steadicam shot! Great work on the video all around. The man has so many skills! Some folks spend decades to master any ONE of'em. I've been a fan of Chris Kane's Acting for years, but once I got started in the industry I was putting in a lotta hours & only got to see his work occasionally, sometimes long after initial release. Working on the peripheries of productions w steadicam, cranes, lights & all, makes me ask: How did they get the CRANE into that space?!?!? Disassembled then reassembled?? Then repeat to Exit...

  18. Zachary Williams

    Christian said fuck transphobia with that gender neutral bathroom

  19. Mara natha

    I love this.... I miss Leverage.

  20. t2delan1

    Hmmm the director’s cut looks about the same as the original cut.

  21. Anna Albright

    Met him and he is actually shorter than me and doesn’t talk much lol.


    Yeah, but a total sweetheart, right?

  22. Leaisnotonfire 16

    It should be illegal to be this sexy

  23. Anna Albright

    I love Portland

  24. Denise Hedden

    Awesome video Awesome job guy's 🖤🔥🖤

  25. My Dog Nose

    The fact that the opening shot up to the point that Kane walks on stage is a single, continuous steadicam shot impresses me every time I see this video. Not only was the camera work flawless, to be able to fill up the bar complete with dancers in cages in just a single minute is incredible. This is my favorite Kane song.


    Took 4 takes to get it, which everyone said was astonishing given the logistics. But Kaniacs can do a lot when they get together. Lol

  26. Beanie Clapper

    How Christian is not a mega star is beyond me, the dude is amazing

  27. VALERIE Ehrlich

    Then why is not in mainstream country music.......or don't they know talent when they see it any more these days in country music he is fantastic

  28. Lawrence Rosen

    By the way, I absolutely loved "Leverage" including the entire cast.  Thank-you for such a great show.  Wishing you the very best that the world has to offer!  Take care.

  29. Lawrence Rosen

    A Great Video!  Did you ever thought about doing a Christian movie including your singing.  You are indeed multi-talented and an outstanding singer with a lot of passion.  I hope to hear from you. Take care and God Bless!

  30. themushbaby

    timothy hutton aka nate directed th music video

  31. Lawrence Rosen

    You are truly a great artist of all times.  I love your music.  I miss you on "Leverage" that was a fantastic show and you are indeed a very talented actor.  I love you and God Bless.  Please let me know when you come to Arizona, especially Tucson.  Keep it up!  Timothy Hutton is an excellent Director.

  32. Simon J. Worrall

    Rule # 7 I can definitely get on board with :P

  33. Steven

    Just wondered why no one noticed the blond in the daisy dukes and boots is Parker.


    Because it's not. Beth was there, but she was taking photos.

  34. john davis

    I was an extra in this video. Wife and I are down front in the crowd. Took 8 hours to film this. Timothy Hutton directed it. We filmed it at Dantes Sinferno in Portland Oregon. Beth Riesgraf was there taking pictures all day but wasn't in the vid. Got to meet all of them. That night he did a full show after filming was done. It was cool how the Leverage cast spent the day supporting him, and it was cool to work for Tim Hutton for a day.


    I was there too. I was in the middle near the post with the projector. Flew in to do this because we filmed on my birthday.

  35. Proud Father

    Damn I remember when this first came out. I can't believe it's been 7 years holy shit.

  36. bslmbslm

    Sexiest man west of Idris Elba.


    Totally agree, luv them both

  37. Joseph Dixon

    this proves even though they might not be filming leverage they are true friends

  38. Nika Lee

    Was that parker up there dancing? hahaha Love the video!

    draven di angelo

    i think so

  39. Mary-Elizabeth Bandow

    Wasn't that a mix of the Brew Pub and John McRory's???


    You mean the film location? This was shot in Dante's in downtown Portland, OR.

  40. Samara Sena

    Why did the band break up ?

    lisa roloff

    It didn't really break up. He just had other projects to work on. He doesn't put the music. When he did he said it got to be like a business and he started to lose the joy of the music. No worries, he is planning on getting back to it. :)

  41. O N

    I LOVE HIS SONGS he also plays eliet on leverage

  42. Tonya Ripke

    Christain is the TOTAL PACKAGE for sure !!

  50. Uday Thambimuthu

    I can't be the only one who really wants to go for a beer or twenty with Christian Kane and Aldis Hodge.

    Charles Goodroe JR

    Uday Thambimuthu Nah brother, I so want to do that too.

    Kimmie D.

    Uday Thambimuthu I think it'd be cool to have a beer or 2 with the whole cast of leverage.

    Yvette Moore

    You guys grab a beer with Aldis and CK, I'll take the director to dinner ;)

  51. Uday Thambimuthu

    Your house sounds like fun bud

  52. Sharolyn Wells

    Christian, I found out you could sing from Leverage. Then I saw you on Second Hand Lions. You are one of my favorites.

  53. Kathy Leake

    My house rule #1 is - you gotta love this man. From Lindsey on Angel to Eliot on Leverage - he could sing the phone book and make it work! And look sexy doing it!

  54. melissa coleman

    loving me some Christian Kane!!

  55. Sandy G.

    Mind blown! Christian I didn't know that you were a singer and a musician too!
