When I was a baby we had no home
And we weren’t the only family we were not alone
Daddy built a shelter from the wind and rain
Through the years I’ve been building this home
Gonna build it solid gonna build it strong
Gonna build it myself I’m an independent man

So I’m singing now
Little by little and stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me
Little by little and stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me

When I was a young man I drifted around
Here and there and from town to town
Getting drunk drinking red red wine
Then one day I realised
When I met that girl with those big brown eyes
Oh I knew she’d be a friend of mine

So I’m singing now
Little by little and stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me
Little by little and stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me

Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down
Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down
Cos it’s built inside of me
Where nobody else can see
Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down

Well we had some trouble and we had some strife
Had to quit my drinking had to change my life
I had to do it for my family
Now when I quit drinking it got harder still
And I know there’s a way where there’s a will
And I won’t give up, until we all are free.

So I’m singing now
Little by little and stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me
Little by little and stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me

Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down
Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down
Cos it’s built inside of me
Where nobody else can see
Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down

Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down
Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down
Cos it’s built inside of me
Where nobody else can see
Ain’t nobody gonna tear this building down

Little by little stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me
Little by little stone by stone
Gonna build this building on my own
And nobody can say this is mine but me
Nobody but me
