Mason died on Monday, we bricked him in the wall
All his children grew and grew, they ain't never grown 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 known so much before
We may never know so much again

The wall collapsed on Wednesday, we chalked it up to fate
Mason's children ran and flew, they ain't never run so fast before
Swore they'd never show their face again
Mason was a mighty man, a mighty man was he

Always said when I'm dead I'm gone, don't you weep for me
Thursday came then Friday, with buyers tall and bright
Mason's children cooked the stew and cleaned up when the feast was through
Take me to the repo-man to pay back what is owed
If he's in some other land write it off as stole
