Verse 1

Mason died on Monday
We bricked him in the wall
All his children grew and grew
They never grew so tall before
They may never grow so tall again

Verse 2

We dug him up on Tuesday
He'd hardly aged a day
Taught them all we ever knew
They never knew so much before
They may never know so much again

Bridge

Mason was a mighty man
A mighty man was he
All he said: when I'm dead and gone
Don't you weep for me [Hey]

Instrumental Break

Verse 3

The wall collapsed on Wednesday
We chalked it up to fate
All his children ran and hid
They never hid so well before
Swore they'd never show their face again

Verse 4

Thursday came then Friday
The fires tall and bright
Mason's children cooked the stew
And cleaned up when the feast was through
Swore they'd never had such times before

Outro

Take me to the Reaper Man
To pay back what was loaned
If he's in some other land
Write it off as stoned

Instrumental Outro
