Paul Young – I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down (Album Version)


I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
[Bridge:]
To charm everyone you see
Oh, what you gonna do
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
Hearts you use as play toys
(The way you are)
One of these days
You make our lives a stress and strain
You think you’ve got the perfect plan
Room by room
[Verse 1:]
[Chorus:] x2

You think you’ve got the perfect plan
So what you gonna do

While you’re at play
All you do is pass around
And playing any game you can
But I’ve got news for you
When you look up one day
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
You’ve been playing madly
You’ve been playing madly

Room by room
You think you’ve got it all set up
And playing any game you can

Pretty soon
When you look up one day
And see your playhouse tumbling down?
Using the power ploy

With every mind in town

[Chorus:]
Room by room
I hope it don’t hit you too hard
(The way you are)
With every mind in town
To charm everyone you see
You think you’ve got it all set up
[Chorus:]

And see your playhouse tumbling down?
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
[Verse 2:]
I’m gonna catch you off guard
Pretty soon
I’m gonna tear your playhouse down
Pretty soon
(The way you are)
