Badfinger – Knocking Down Our Home lyrics

Your heart is in your home they say
Your home's where you belong
But someone stole my heart today
So listen to my song...
I heard the news today
They're going to move us far away
Seems that our home must go
They're going to build a motorway
It isn't fair, nobody cares
They're knocking down our home
Ruining all we own
They're knocking down our home
Please help us
Don't let them take our home
Ma's cooking at the stove
Where she's cooked for thirty years
Ten thousand meals she's cooked
But now her eyes are filled with tears
It isn't fair, nobody cares
They're knocking down our home
Ruining all we own
