The inspiration for this came from the traditional rhyme, ‘This is the house that Jack Built’.

Lyrics

Spoken: This is the house that Jack built
With windows walls and a floor,
A roof to keep the rain out
And a peep hole in the door.
This is the key to Jack’s house
It opens up the lock
But if you haven’t got the key
You’re going to have to knock.

Now, Jack has built a little house
He’s built it on a hill
And if he hasn’t moved away
I guess he lives there still.
He’s built it for his lovely wife
Two children, a dog and a cat
And when the house was finished
He put out the welcome mat. Chorus:


This is the house that Jack built
With windows walls and a floor,
A roof to keep the rain out
And a peep hole in the door
This is the key to Jack’s house
It opens up the lock
But if you haven’t got the key...
You’re going to have to knock.
Knock, knock, knock, knock
You’re going to have to knock.


Now Jack has built a little house
Put carpets on the floor
Put curtains on the windows
And he’s painted the walls and doors.
He’s built a cozy fireplace
to keep them from the cold
And there they live quite happily
Or so I have been told. Chorus:
