She left me a reminder of the world she left behind her
An overcoat, a coffee cup, an old horse-hair binder
I could catch her right away, you know I would never find her

Down in the ditch with no hope of a cure
For people so rich we are ever so poor
There are reasons for everything but I've found none at all

And so I'm tearing it down
Tearing it down
Tearing it down, ooh ooh

A fair days work for a fair days wage
And you're halfway there but you're twice my age
And I loved too much once to accept that fate

So I'm tearing it, tearing it, tearing it down
Tearing it down
Tearing it down, ooh ooh

Come out of the closet and just look around
Come out of the kitchen, those dishes will not drown
This new bed of roses is an old thorny crown

You should be tearing it down
Tearing it down
Tearing it down, ooh ooh

Tearing it down
Tearing it down
Tearing it down

And she left me a reminder of the world she left behind her
An overcoat, a coffee cup, an old ??? binder
I could catch her right away, you know I'd never find her

And now I'm tearing it down
