Ow, she's a brick house
She's mighty-mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick house
That lady's stacked and that's a fact
Ain't holding nothing back

Ow, she's a brick house
Well put-together, everybody knows
This is how the story goes

She knows she got everything
That a woman needs to get a man, yeah, yeah
How can she lose with the stuff she use
Thirty-six, twenty-four, thirty-six oh what a winning hand

'Cause she's a brick house
She's mighty-mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick house
Ow, that lady stacked and that's a fact
Ain't holding nothing back

Ow, she's a brick house
Yeah, she's the one, the only one, built like an amazon

The clothes she wears, her sexy ways
Make an old man wish for younger days, yeah, yeah
She knows she's built and knows how to please
Sure enough to knock a strong man to his knees

'Cause she's a brick house
Yeah, she's mighty mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick house
The lady's stacked and that's a fact
Ain't holding nothing back

Shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down now

Brick house
Yeah, she's mighty mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick house
Yeah, she's the one, the only one, built like an amazon, yeah
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it, shake it
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
Shake it down, shake it down, shake it

Ow, a brick house

    My InterpretationThe meaning of the song and the term "Brick House" is very simple. It is an old 1970s expression for someone, usually a woman, who is "very well built" as is made very clear in the lyrics, "...Well put together..." or "...The lady's stacked..." or "...36-24-36...." If you can find a woman with these measurements, which is very rare, you will instantly understand what "She's a brick house..." means.

    It should go without saying that an actual brick house (a house with walls made with only bricks and mortar) is a very solid structure and is very desirable, if well built. So in the same way, finding a woman you would describe as a "brick house" or "well built" is also very desirable woman.

    This expression should not be confused "built like a brick sh*t house," which usually describes a very large and muscular man, who you would not want to be matched against on an American Football field or in a fight.
