We always wanted a big two story house
Back when we lived in that little two room shack
We wanted fame and fortune and we'd live life the way the rich folks do
We knew somehow we'd make it, together me and you

With dreams and hopes of things to come we worked and never stopped
Not much time for you and me, we had to reach the top
We bought that big two story house and soon became the envy of the town
With all our work behind us we'd finally settled down

Now we live (yes we live) in a two story house whoa, what splendor
But there's no love about

I've got my story and I've got mine, too
How sad it is, we now live in a two story house

The house is filled with rare antiques, there's marble on the floor
Beauty all around us like we've never seen before
There's chandeliers in every room, imported silks and satin all about
We filled the house with everything but somehow left love out

Now we live (yes we live) in a two story house, oh what splendor
But there's no love about

I've got my story and I've got mine, too
How sad it is, we now live in a two story house
How sad it is, we now live in a two story house
