Buying a 114-year-old schoolhouse turned out to be a good idea!
Lyrics:
Jack and Jill went up the hill and bought the farm.
What a thrill to find such treasures in the barn!
Enough to pay the rent and for the operation, too.
She may be breaking down, but look up. Oh what a view!

Things have gotten better and they're getting better still.
Great white elephant on the hill.
There's been so many changes, so many comin still,
Great white elephant on the hill.

Jack be nimble, Jill was quick. She got her way.
"Idle hands are the Devil's work," they always say.
The pieces fall in place, now could you place it on my bill?
We will build this house, this home upon the hill.

Things have gotten better and they're gettin better still.
Great white elephant on the hill.
There's been so many changes, so many comin still,
Great white elephant on the hill.

Yeah... still not old.

Heard this song first about a year... maybe a year and a half ago. I think it was the first song I heard with vocals in it on Newgrounds, too. And it still hasn't lost its charm. It's simplicity probably is what lends this particular song its strength.

reviews4u- All reviews, all the time.



Nice voice.

I have to agree Boux, the chordprogression is quite Ten Years After like. But it does not really temper with my overall impression of the song. It's only a few chords in the verse after all. Nice to see some decent lyrics. A lot of people on NG does not seem to think the lyrics matter. Good voice, good playing. The backing vocals seem pretty good too.. Good good :D



Good

reminds me of ten years after's : i'd like to change the world

I'd type something in here, but it'd be completely ineffectual for my feelings regarding this song.

Incredible.
