When the walls come tumblin’ down
But I know I’m a real good dancer
You can bend me you can break me
Wanna put my arms around you

When the walls come tumblin’ down
When the walls come tumblin’ tumblin’ down
It’s perfectly clear
And now some people don’t want to treat me the same
They’re waiting outside to claim my tumblin’ walls
No good deed goes unpunished
When the walls come tumblin’ tumblin’ down
Saw my picture in the paper
Everybody’s got their problems–ain’t no new news here
But you’d better stand clear

You can’t trust ’em you can’t love ’em
I’ve had that pleasure for years and years
Some people say I’m obnoxious and lazy
I’m uneducated–my opinion means nothin’
And I don’t mind bein’ their whippin’ boy
I’m the same old trouble you’ve been havin’ for years
No no I never was a sinner–tell me what else can I do
Don’t need to look over my shoulder to see what I’m after

Some people ain’t no damn good

When the walls come crumblin’ crumblin’
Second best is what you get ’til you learn to bend the rules
Don’t confuse the problem with the issue girl
Just a human desire to have you come near
Read the news around my face

And time respects no person–what you lift up must fall
Feel your breath in my ear
When the walls come crumblin’ crumblin’
