Alan Price Set - The house that Jack built 1967

Brother Nigel paints the stairs with the signs of the Zodiac
Throws paint in the mirror as he stands in his plastic mac
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 to 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 to 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 to the sky

Cousin Festus writes a letter each and every single day
He believes that writing letters keep the Asian Flu away
I've got a reservation, now I was 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 to the sky

I'm coming
I'm coming
Please save a place for me
Oooh, I'm coming babe
Oooh, I'm coming babe
Oooh, I'm coming babe
