ROSEMARY CLOONEY


This Ole House Lyrics

This ole house once knew his children
This ole house once knew his wife
This ole house was home and comfort
As they fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter
This ole house heard many shouts
Now he trembles in the darkness
When the lightnin' walks about

[Chorus:]
Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer
Ain't a-gonna need this house no more
Ain't got the time to fix the shingles
Ain't got time to fix the floor
Ain't got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window pane
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer
He's a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

This ole house is a-gettin' shaky
This ole house is a-gettin' old
This ole house lets in the rain
This ole house lets in the cold
Oh, his knees are a-gettin' chilly
But he feel no fear of pain
'cause he sees an angel peekin'
Through a broken window pane

[Chorus]

[Musical Interlude]

This ole house is afraid of thunder
This ole house is afraid of storms
This ole house just groans and trembles
When the night wind flings its arms
When the night is a-gettin' feeble
This old house is a-needin' paint
Just like him it's tuckered out
But he's a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

[Chorus]
