(Buck Maxwell - Ruth Maxwell - Rosella Larue)

One, one, one grain of sand
One, one, one grain of sand.

Just one little grain of sand
Can change your life and ruin your plans
Undermine your house of love
Bring it tumbling down
One, one, one grain of sand.

Once upon a mountain top a castle stood
Carved out of rock and stone, iron and wood
Then one day a grain of sand grew into an iron latch
Undermine the mountain side and the castle tumble down
One, one, one grain of sand.

A lover spoke an angry word that left the tears
The tears led to a quarrel, love disappeared
That word was like a grain of sand
That undermined the things they've planned
It shook up the house of love
And brought it tumbling down
One, one, one grain of sand.

Just one little grain of sand
Can change your life and ruin your plans
Undermine your house of love
Bring it tumbling down
One, one, one grain of sand.

One, one, one grain of sand
One, one, one grain of sand...
