Mason died on monday, we bricked him in the wall
All his children grew and grew, they aint never grown so tall before
They may never grow so tall again

We dug him up on tuesday, he hardly aged a day
Taught us all we ever knew, we aint never known so much before
We may never know so much again

The wall collapsed on wednesday, we chalked it up to fate
Masons children ran and flew, they aint never run so fast before
Swore theyd never show their face again

Mason was a mighty man, a mighty man was he
Always said when Im dead Im gone, dont you weep for me

Thursday came then friday, with buyers tall and bright
Masons children cooked the stew and cleaned up when the feast was through

Take me to the repo-man to pay back what is owed
If hes in some other land write it off as stole
