Lyrics

Playing like I made it
Wearing silk and gold
Drive me to the airport
Eating well, I'm told

A well achiever, true believer
To small-town cries of shame
My life astounds, the cynics frown
I took my wife, and I moved my life
And I built my house this way

Made some friends in little cubed office spaces
I had to keep up, that was the way
Sunday barbecues on fire with property values
Rising like smoke away

A strong competer, wife mistreater
Head in my hands today
I walked upon the knives of boredom
I bit too much off, the cake was so tough
I built my house this way
Oh, I built my house this way

Little dreams are little dreams
And little dreams mean everything

Walking bravado, parent of the new generation
Keep your kids cool, make them believe
That big cars, wet bars, and swimming pools just come along
With what you'd love to make me

My lust for life lives in a condo
The kids have moved away
I even cry at stupid commercials
And wipe the tears, remember the years
I built my house this way
Oh, I built my house this way

Little dreams are little dreams
And little dreams mean everything

I built my house this way
Oh, I built my house this way
