I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down
Paul Young

You think you've got it all set up,
you think you've got the perfect plan
to charm everyone you see
and playing any game you can.

But I've got news for you,
I hope it don't hit you too hard.
One of these days while you're at play
I'm gonna catch you off guard.

I'm gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon.
I'm gonna tear your playhouse down room by room.

You make our lives a stress and strain
using the power ploy.
All you do is pass around
hearts you use as play toys.

You've been playing madly
with every mind in town.
So what you gonna do when you look up one day
and see your playhouse tumbling down.

I'm gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon.
I'm gonna tear your playhouse down room by room.

You think you've got it all set up,
you think you've got the perfect plan
to charm everyone you see
and playing any game you can.

You've been playing madly
with every mind in town.
Oh, what you gonna do when you look up one day
and see your playhouse tumbling down.

I'm gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon.
I'm gonna tear your playhouse down room by room.

I'm gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon.
I'm gonna tear your playhouse down room by room by room.
(repeat ad lib. & fade)

From: "R. de jong"
