House Fall Down

This song is by Yo La Tengo and appears on the album New Wave Hot Dogs (1987).

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 cries

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
