Song Lyrics:
They passed an ordinance in the town
They said we'd have to tear it down
That little old shack out back so dear to me
Though the health department said
It's day was over and dead
It will stand forever in my memory

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town

It was not so long ago
That I went tripping through the snow
Out to that house behind my old hound dog
Where I'd sit me down to rest
Like a snow bird on his nest
And read the Sears and Roebuck catalog

I would hum a happy tune
Peeping through the quarter moon
As my Daddy's kin had done before
It was in that quiet spot
Daily cares could be forgot
It gave the same relief to rich and poor

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town

Now it was not a castle fair
But I could dream a future there
And build my castles to the yellowjacket's drone
I could orbit around the sun
Fight with General Washington
Or be a king upon a golden throne

It wasn't fancy built at all
We had newspapers on the wall
It was air conditioned in the wintertime
It was just a humble hut
But it's door was never shut
And a man could get inside without a dime

Don't let 'em tear that little brown building down
Don't let 'em tear that precious building down
Don't let 'em tear that dear old building down
For there's not another like it in the country or the town
