This Ole House - Bette Midler (貝蒂·米德勒)

This ole house once knew my children

 

This ole house once knew my life

This ole house was home and comfort

 

As we lived through storm and strife

This ole house once rang with laughter

 

This ole house heard many shouts

Now she trembles in the darkness

When the lightning walks about

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer

Ain't a-gonna need this house no more

Ain't got time to fix the shingles

Ain't got time to fix the floor

Ain't got time to oil the hinges

Nor to mend the window panes

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer

I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

 

This ole house is gettin' shaky

This ole house is gettin' old

This ole house lets in the rain

This ole house lets in the cold

On my knees I'm gettin' shaky

 

But I feel no fear or pain

 

'Cause I see an angel peekin'

 

Through a broken window pane

I ain't a-gonna need this house no longer

Ain't a-gonna need this house no more

Ain't got time to fix the shingles

Ain't got time to fix the floor

I ain't got time to oil the hinges

 

Nor to mend the window panes

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer

I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

 

This ole house is afraid of thunder

This ole house is afraid of storms

This ole house just groans and trembles

 

When the night wind flings it's arms

This ole house is gettin' feeble

This old house is needin' paint

 

Just like me it's tuckered out

But I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

 

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer

Ain't a-gonna need this house no more

Ain't got time to fix the shingles

Ain't got time to fix the floor

I ain't got time to oil the hinges

Nor to mend the window panes

 

Ain't gonna need this house no longer

I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints

I'm gettin' ready to meet the saints
