  • Lyrics:   the place where i was born is a lovely place no man i know has seen a lovelier place the greenest trees and the sunniest days and a ten-foot wall to surround me the place where i was born is the richest place no man i know has seen a richer place the buildings are crystal and the streets are all gold and there's a ten-foot wall to assure me what would i see if i could stand on my shoulders? nothing at all i have no doubt leaving my feet for half a second it's a dangerous thing i can live without the place where i live is a happy place my child wears a smile on her rosy-cheek face i've taught her well not to get too close to that ten-foot wall because the place where we live is a peaceful place though sometimes i get scared when the walls start to shake there's violence on the outside but not in here and the ten-foot wall protects my family so if you're by, walk on in let me lock the gate and show you 'round there's just one rule you must keep: of the world outside you cannot speak what would i see if i could stand on my shoulders? nothing at all i have no doubt leaving my feet for half a second it's a dangerous thing i can live without the place where i'll die is a lovely place it's only been once i thought of leaving this place: the strangest traveller came in for a rest i asked him to stay like have all of my guests but the words he spoke they wove a haunting tale of a heavenly place that made mine look like hell and if i stood on his shoulders, he said, i would see it he called me a fool for not wanting to see it and as he said goodbye it seemed my lovely place became a cardboard shack painted the ugliest grey but the truth is strong i know he lied to my face for my ten-foot wall is still standing what would i see if i could stand on my shoulders? nothing at all i have no doubt leaving my feet for half a second it's a dangerous thing that i can live without
