lyrics

WE BUILT THIS
Mel, Marie, Lauren, Kelly, and Ruby Lewis / Jay Clementi

When I look around, at our patch-quilt family
My heart fills with pride deep inside sometimes I can't believe
Oo Oo Ooo yeah, Oo Oo Ooo yeah we built this, yeah we built this

Duty calls that phone won't stop ringing
I’m taking those girls all over the world, just us and the girls singing
Oo Oo Ooo yeah, Oo Oo Ooo yeah we built this, yeah we built this

Nail by nail, brick by brick
Times got tough we never quit
We took our love
All on our own
Said anywhere we go
We gonna make it our home
Make it our home

We got us one, one in a billion baby
Letting her roll watching her grow into a little sunshine lady
Oo Oo Ooo yeah, Oo Oo Ooo yeah we built this, yeah we built this

We got us a little Ruby, sassy cat
A shiny rock star pink guitar angel air-force brat
Oo Oo Ooo yeah, Oo Oo Ooo yeah we built this, yeah we built this

Nail by nail, brick by brick
Times got tough but we never quit
We took our love
All on our own
Said anywhere we go
We gonna call it home
We gonna call it home

Our oldest Kelly, has a quiet grace
But if you mess with her sister’s mister, she'll be all up in your face
All up in your face

Nail by nail, brick by brick
Times get tough she won’t quit
We take our love
All on our own
And anywhere we go
We gonna make it home
We gonna make it home

It's all a gift
Yeah we built this
