THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT (Bob Lance / Fran Robbins) Aretha Franklin - 1968 This is the house that Jack built, y'all Remember this house! This was the land that he worked by hand The was the dream of an upright man This was the room that was filled with love This was a love that I was proud of This was a life of a love I planned Of a love and a life we 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 that is turned to stone 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, This is the house that Jack built, I'm gonn' remember this house! Oh-ohh wha-a-at's the use of crying? Because 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 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 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
