ALAN PRICE lyrics - House That Jack Built

ALAN PRICE
"House That Jack Built"

Brother Nigel paints the stairs with the signs of the Zodiac
Throws mink in the mirror as he stands in his plastic bag
My sister Emma rises ever round and round the garden
Spends the whole day saying: "I beg your pardon"

Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
It makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby
And it reaches up into the sky

Uncle Joe cracks walnuts inbetween his toes for fun
And looks through coloured glass at the dark spots on the sun
And Mary, she believes that her mother was a queen
Keep saying you just missed him, King Solomon's just been

Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
It makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby
And it reaches up into the sky

Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
It makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby
And it reaches up into the sky

Cousin Festus writes a letter each and every single day
He believes that writing letters keeps the Asian flew away
I got a reservation, now it's given it for free
'Cause I killed all the flies in the State of Tennessee

Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
It makes you wanna cry
This is the house that Jack built, baby
And it reaches up into the sky

I'm coming
I'm coming
Please save a place for me

Oho, I'm coming, babe
Oho, I'm coming, babe
Oho, I'm coming, baby
