One Less Bell to Answer/A House Is Not a Home by Barbra Streisand/Dionne Warwick is a mash-up, featured in Home, the sixteenth episode of Season One. It is sung by April and Will.

They sing it when April invites herself to sleep over. They both sing that they should be happy their respective relationships are over because they were bad (April was a mistress, and Will was lied to). But, as the song says: "all they do is cry."

The song is also a reprise of A House Is Not a Home, that Kurt and Finn sing earlier in the episode.

Lyrics

April:
One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
I should be happy
But all I do is cry

Will:
Cry, cry, no more laughter

April:
Oh, I should be happy

Will:
Oh, why did she go?

April:
I only know that since he left my life's so empty (Will: Oh, oh)
Though I try to forget it just can't be done
Each time the doorbell rings, I still run

April and Will:
I don't know how in the world

April:
To stop thinking of him

Will:
I should be happy

April:
'Cause I still love him so
I end each day the way I start out (Will: I start and end each day crying)
Crying my heart out

Will:
One less bell to answer

April:
One less egg to fry
One less man

Will:
One less man

April:
To pick up after

Will:
No more

April:
No more laughter

April and Will:
No more love

April:
Since he went away

Will:
Since she went away

April:
Since he went away, oooh
A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
Well, I'm not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stair and turn the key
Oh, please be there
Still in love with me

Will:
One less bell to answer

April:
Each time the doorbell rings, I still run

Will:
One less egg to fry

April:
I'm lucky I've got one less man

Will:
One less man

April:
To pick up after

Will:
No more

April:
No more laughter

April and Will:
No more love

April:
Since he went away

Will:
Since she went away

April:
Since he went away

April and Will:
All I do is cry
