ARETHA FRANKLIN

ARETHA FRANKLIN - THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT

rate me

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 loved

Of the house that Jack built.

Remember this house!

There was the fence that held our love,

There was the gate that he walked out of

This is the heart it has turned to stone

This was the house, it ain't no home

This is the love that I destroyed

On the day that I toyed with love,

This is the house that Jack built,

I'm gonn' remember this house!

Oh-ohh wha-a-at's the use of crying?

You know I brought it on myself

There's no denying

But it see-e-ee-ems 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

I'm gonna remember this house

Listen!

I got the house

I got the car

I got the rug

And I got the rack

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

Ohhh, Jack

You oughta come on back

Ohh Jack

You oughta come on back

To the that you built

It's the same one that you built

I didn't understand

Until I lost a upright man

Come on back Jack
