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...
