went down and the lady said it
got tore down and the priest just said it
got burned
they give me five years
five years
it's my turn
came down and the lady said it
got tore down and the priest just said it
got burned
they give me five years
five years
it's my turn
Jerusalem
Jerusalem
gettin' tired of you doing this to me
I'm gonna hit you if you say that to me
one more time
I wanna see you and you're sayin' you're busy
wanna stop it and you said it would be easy
sure takes time
probably next time gonna be the last time
oh you don't two-time
it'd be the best time
never meaning next time
short time
hope you're doing what you said
when you swore you'd make it better
live on the letter
on time
Jerusalem
Jerusalem
Jerusalem
Jerusalem
