alexthomasdavis – Laying It On The Lines lyrics

There's a man who built his house on sand
What of it now
What of it now

There's a man who only plays on clay
What of him now
Wimbledon bow

There's a man who lives in dirt and filth
What of him now
Just like a sow

There's a man who built his house on sand
What of it now
What of it now
A second hand shirt from Kurt Cobain
A superman hug for Louis Lane
A beautiful swing from Tarzan to Jane
A dutiful nod from from a great dane
There's a man who layed it on the lines
Who if I may
Did it that way
There's a man who built his house from card
What can I say
Washed all away

There's a man who ate his way through life
Pass him a tray
Big mac a day

A walk in the wild from that lou reed
A pint of best mild keep crued meed
A higher love malting from a blue seed
A great dane bolting on a crued leed
There's a man who built his house on sand
What of it now
What of it now

    I could have sung this song at talking level, a few octaves lower (hey! I know what an octave is! Thtas about my musical limit though!) It would have been less strained then, but hey it makes the album go somewhere different. Not one of my best songs, so don't know why its the title track, I guess someone might like it - probably a relative
