      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
      This was the room that was filled with love
      It was a love that he was proud of
      This was a life of a love he planned
      Of a love and a life we loved
      In the house that Jack built.
      (the house that Jack built)
      Remember this house!
      
      There was the fence that held our love (yes it was),
      There was the gate that he walked out of
      This is the heart that is turned to stone (yes it is)
      This was the house, but it ain't no home
      This is the love that I once had
      In a dream that I thought was love,
      In the house that Jack built (the house that Jack built),
      I'm gonn' remember this house!
      
      Oh-ohh wha-a-at's the use of crying?
      'Cause I brought it on myself
      There's no denying
      But it see-e-ee-ems awful funny
      That I didn't understand
      Was it a house of an upright man
      
      Up on the hill
      There's a big plan still
      In the house that Jack built
      (the house that Jack built)
      I'm gonn' remember this house
      (the house that Jack built)
      
      Listen!
      I got the house
      I got the car
      I got the rug
      And I got the rack
      But I ain't got Jack (Jack)
      (I ain't got Jack, 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
      Ohh! Come on back
      Ohh Jack
      Oh come on back
      He wanted to use me
      
      I didn't understand
      I said, I want my upright man
