This is the house That Jack built, y'all Remember this house

This was the land That he worked by hand It was the dream Of an upright man There was the room That was filled with love It was a love That I was proud of This is the life The life that he planned On the love, the same old love In the house that Jack built (The house that Jack built) Remember this house There was a fence That held our love (Yes, it was) There was the gate That he walked out of This is the heart It had turned to stone (Yes, it is) This is a house It ain't no home This was a love That I destroyed On the day that I toyed with love In the house that Jack built (The house that Jack built) I'm gonna remember this house Oh, what's the use of crying You know I brought it on myself There's no denying But it seems awful funny That I didn't understand Until I lost my upright man Up on the hill Everything stands still In the house that Jack built (The house that Jack built) I'm gonna remember this house (The house that Jack built) Listen, I got the house, I got the car I got the rugs and I got the rent But I ain't got Jack And I want my Jack back I turned my back on Jack He said he wasn't coming back I turned my back on Jack He said he wasn't coming back Oh, Jack, you Oughta come on back Oh, Jack you Oughta come on back (Come on back, Jack) To the one that you built It's the same one you built You oughta come on back, Jack Oh, now Jack I didn't understand Till I lost my upright man Come on back, Jack You oughta come on home now
