I'm building a house
With a good foundation
Which is the basis
For any successful creation
I'm building a house
One board at a time
And when it is finished
It will be worth my dime
I'm building a house
Slapping up the paint
Going for something
Modern, but quaint
I'm building a house
I won't forget the plumbing
And I'll put in a guest bedroom
For when visitors are coming
I'm building a house
The dining room will be spacious
I hope I can be
A host that is gracious
