Build A Wall

This song is by Unknown Artist.

I'm gonna build me a wall, I'll make it ten feet high
See ya later, pal, bye, bye
No one gettin' in so don't you even try
A ten foot wall

I'm gonna build me a wall, I'm gonna disappear
What's the matter, pal, am I not bein' clear?
Can't you take a hint, am I getting through at all?
Just get outta here

I was told the world would despise me
So I should have known, I should have guessed
I thought these two might be different
Well, now I know they're just like all the rest

I'm gonna be what they want, I'm gonna be what they say
Hey world, I'll do it your way
You're looking for a monster, it's your lucky day
I'll be what you want

What a fool to think she might love me
I opened my heart and let her walk through
She wanted Prince Charming, I wanted my home back
How lucky both our wishes came true

Gonna build me a wall, a perfect place to hide
Hey world, stay on your side
The best way to conquer, they say is to divide

Gonna build a wall
Gonna be what they say
Gonna hide in my heart
Gonna build a wall
