(omitting the background "chorus")

I'm workin' on a building, I'm workin' on a building,
I'm workin' on a building, for my lord, for my lord.

If iiiiiiiiiiiiii were a drunkard, tell you what I'd do,
I'd quit my drinkin', and work on a building too.

Chorus:
I'm workin' on a building, I'm workin' on a building,
I'm workin' on a building, for my lord, for my lord.
It'a a holy ghost building, it'a a holy ghost building,
It'a a holy ghost building, for my lord, for my lord.

If iiiiiiiiiiiiii were a gambler, tell you what I'd do,
I'd quit my gamblin', and I'd work on a building too.

Chorus

If iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii were a preacher, tell you what I'd do,
I'd keep on preachin', and I'd work on a building too.

Chorus
