Mason died on Monday
We bricked him in the wall
All his children grew and grew
They ain't never grew so tall before
They may never grow so tall again

We dug him up on Tuesday
He hardly aged a day
Taught us all we ever knew
We ain't never knew so much before
We may never know so much again

Mason was a mighty man
A mighty man was he
Always said, "When I'm dead and gone
Don't you weep for me"

The wall collapsed on Wednesday
We chalked it up to fate
All his children ran in fear
They ain't never hear it so well before
Swore they'd never show their face again

Thursday came then Friday
With buyers tall and bright
Mason's children cooked the stew
And cleaned up when the feast was through
Swore they'd never [Incomprehensible] before

Take me to the repo man
To pay back what was owed
If he's in some other land
Write it off as stole

Take me to the repo man
To pay back what was owed
If he's in some other land
Write it off as stole
