Grandfather's House

This song is by Eno/Cale and appears on the 2005 European reissue of the album Wrong Way Up (1990).

This house was built by my grandfather's hand
Before I was accused of theft
The boat was sold for eighty thousand pounds
The work is now at an end
It is rumoured that he's gone
It is rumoured that he's gone

The mountain tops were covered in snow
Dinner wasn't served until nine
The windows were painted three weeks ago
And we closed them one by one
The work is now at an end
The work is now at an end

I played with my children all afternoon
The plane took off at quarter past three
In the house that was built by my grandfather's hand
I stood accused of theft
