Mother & Jack lyrics

Lala.......
I got a letter in this town
Theyre going to pull this old house down
I got a letter in this town
Theyre going to pull this sad house down

Mother and jack, they went to see the emperor
Mother and jack ,they went to see the emperor
They got no answer
They got no answer
Said he would think-ah , over his drink-ah
About this question on this house of yours

Dont take our house , away from us
Dont take our house , away from us
He made jacks poor hair turn grey
He made jacks poor hair turn grey

I got a letter in this town
Theyre going to pull this old house down
I got a letter in this town
Theyre going to see this sad house down

Mother and jack ,they went to see the emperor
Mother and jack ,they went to see the emperor
They got no answer
They got no answer
Said he would think-ah , over his drink-ah
About this question on this house of yours

Dont take our house away from us
Dont take our house away from us

Dont take our house away from us
Lala.....
