IN THIS HOUSE
("Eartha's Song")

(I've)Been banished from the doorways, a child of the field
but never let them see me cry
I've slept under porches of hosts who wouldn't yield
Too young and barely knowing why
I'm just a little different, don't fit into the plan
not a this nor a that, just me
(But) I know I'm something special, doin' best I can
'Cause hopes and dreams, they're free

And momma say -and momma say- forgive her, she born this way
And momma say -and momma say- love her as we do and let her stay

You can't bring her in this house
We won't have that in this house
So she's Thursday's child you say
But here it's always Saturday
We won't have her in this house

The shackles make me stronger, the little girl is gone
fading in the mist of tears
Haunting cold dark stations and riding trains til dawn
Chasing down the mocking fears
You want me, mister whatzit, to come into your clutch
Won't help me up, just lay me down
A brew you want to sample, a skin you want to touch
Half-caste, and shimm-ring gown

And momma say -and momma say- forgive her, she born this way
And momma say -and momma say- love her as we do and let her stay

You can't bring her in this house
We won't have that in this house
So she's Thursday's child you say
But here it's always Saturday
We won't have her in this house

BRIDGE (instrumental)

Beloved round the world now -the roses they're all mine
But around me I've built a wall
And when I visit hometown, and when I see the shrine
The shame -they forgot it all
I leave their dust behind me and forty 'leven miles
back to the land of chrome and cream
That earthy girl still weeps inside and hides it with her smiles
It cost too much, this dream

And momma said -and momma said- forgive her, she born this way
And momma said -and momma said- love her as we do and let her stay

You can't bring her in this house
We won't have that in this house
So she's Thursday's child you say
But here it's always Saturday...
