TERRY'S SONG

Well they built the Titanic to be one of a kind, but many ships have ruled the sea
They built the Eiffel Tower to stand alone, they could build another if they pleased
Taj Mahal, the pyramids of Egypt, kinda unique I suppose
But when they built you, brother, they broke the mold

Now the world is filled with many wonder under the passing sun
And sometimes something comes along and you know for sure it’s the only one
The Mona Lisa, the David, the Sistine Chapel, Jesus, Mary and Joe
And when they built you, brother, they broke the mold

When they built you brother, they turned dust into gold
When they built you, brother, they broke the mold

They say you can’t take it with you, but I think that they’re wrong
Cause all I know is I woke up this morning, and something big was gone

Gone into that dark ether where you’re still young and dark and cold
Just like when they built you, brother, they broke the mold

Now your death is upon us and we’ll return your ashes to the earth
And I know you’ll take comfort in knowing that you been roundly blessed and cursed
But love is a power greater than death
Just like the songs and stories told
And when she built you, brother, she broke the mold

That attitudes a power stronger than death
Oh I’ve been burning (her stone cold?)

When they built you, brother
