​This Is Our House

This song is by Jean Beauvoir and appears on the album Drums Along The Mohawk (1986).

Long ago there was a safe place
We called home
We heard a knock on the door
Mamma said don't answer - I didn't hear her
There were these men dressed up in green uniforms
They wanted to talk to Mom
I called her name but something had changed
First time in my life I was afraid

Mister - Go away
This is our house
My Papa built it you see
He built it for my Mom and me
Misater - Go away
This is our house
When he was alive you see
He built it on his hands and knees

I was not suppose to hear
But I put the door to my ear
Trying to hear what they had to say
They shouldn't have been talking
To my Momma that way
Through her tears that night
I could see the rest of my life
Well they said we don't belong Momma
Why didn't you tell them they were wrong

Mister - Go away
This is our house
My Papa built it you see
He built it for my Mom and me
Misater - Go away
This is our house
When he was alive you see
He built it on his hands and knees

Oh - have things really changed
Do I really own my name
Go away this is our house
