Alan Price – The House That Jack Build lyrics

Brother Nigel paints the stairs with the signs of the Zodiac
Throws mink in the mirror as he stands in his plastic bag
My sister Emma rises ever round and round the garden
Spends the whole day saying, "I beg your pardon"
Oh my, my, my, my, my, my, my, it makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby, and it reaches up into the sky
Uncle Joe cracks walnuts in between his toes for fun
And looks through coloured glass at the dark spots on the sun
And Mary she believes that her mother was a queen
Keep saying you just missed him, King Solomon's just been
Oh my, my, my, my, my, my, my, it makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby, and it reaches up into the sky

Oh my, my, my, my, my, my, my, it makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby, and it reaches up into the sky
Cousin Festus writes a letter each and every single day
He believes that writing letters keep the Asian flew away
I got a reservation, now it's given it for free 'cause I killed all the flies in the State of Tennessee
Oh my, my, my, my, my, my, my, it makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby, and it reaches up into the sky

I'm coming
I'm coming
Please save a place for me
Oh, I'm coming babe
Oh, I'm coming babe
Oh, I'm coming babe
