House That Jack Built
This is the house that Jack built, y'all Remember this house! This was the land that he worked by hand The was the dream of an upright man This was the room that was filled with love This was a love that I was proud of This was a life of a love I planned Of a love and a life we loved Of the house that Jack built. Remember this house! There was the fence that held our love, There was the gate that he walked out of This is the heart that is turned to stone This was the house, but it ain't no home This is the love that I once had In a dream that I thought was love, This is the house that Jack built, I'm gonn' remember this house! Oh oh what's the use of crying? You know I brought it on myself There's no denying But it seems awful funny That I didn't understand Was it a house of an upright man Up on the hill There's a big stand still In the house that Jack built Gonn' remember this house Listen! I got the house I got the car I got the rug And I got the rack But I ain't got Jack And I want my Jack back! I turned my back on Jack He said he wasn't coming back I turned my back on Jack He said he wasn't coming back Oh, Jack You oughta come on back Oh Jack You oughtha come on back To the one where you live Back to the thing that you built You oughtha come on back I didn't understand until I lost an upright man
