Yo La Tengo House Fall Down Lyrics
I met a tugboat captain
The stories he could tell
Of a sailor's life in the shallow water
The saddest yarn he'd spin, it happened on dry land
He saw his house fall down
It shed it's bricks and it dropped to the ground
Ah, well, made him feel so bad,
he thinks about it and he crys.
Ah, well, made him feel so mad,
Don't want to think about it now.
You never walk out, or even look away
He had a house torn down, swipe a deed and start breaking ground
Drop some mortar, we'll be rippin' up your asphalt
Another house goes down, and another house,
and another drops to the ground, drops to the ground
