All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put us back together again.
We huffed and we puffed,
And we blew this house down.
We tried. Yeah, we tried.

The sticks and the stones were breakin my bones,
And the names that were said kinda hurt us.
Riddle me this and riddle me that.
What went wrong? What went wrong?

When did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why,
But I remember once upon a time.

Sometimes I wish upon a star
To give you a reason to give me your heart.
Rock-a-bye baby, you rocked me goodbye.
Tell me why. Tell me why.

When did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why,
But I remember once upon a time.

All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put us back together again.
We huffed and we puffed,
And we blew this house down.
We tried, yeah, oh, we tried...
Oh, you know we tried...

When did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why,
But I remember, yeah, I remember.

When did the sun, when did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why,
But I remember once upon a time.
Once upon a time...
