lyrics

Tk 3 (a)

'HANGING FROM THE PIPES' (LEAVING THE HOUSE THAT HORSE BUILT)

Saw that French guy, strolling, clear cross the sky
Wish I had me a pair of stilts,
I'd crush the house that horse built

I'm here in jail, but you wont hear me wail
hangin' from the pipes, I'll still be looking very nice...
leaving the house...the house that horse built

Chorus

Let the Great World Spin , let me back in,
Lord knows I've been, just filling in
the house that horse built

I was of this earth, and I had worth,
In my dreams, we sing bout the castle on the hill
were runing at full tilt
but its to the House that Horse built

Let the Great World Spin, let me back in,
let my heart swim away
from the house that horse built
the house that horse built

Tk 3 (b) Gospel Outro
