Behind This Four Walls

Behind this four walls, 
I've seen my babies crawl, 
Underneath the wishful wells, 
I've watched my penny fall, 
Still I choose to stay, 
Isolated and far away, 

I've lived in hope of sunlight, 
But all I get is twilight, 
Under the black night I hope for twinkle, 
And the blue skies I need glitter and sparkle, 
Still I choose to stay, 
Isolated and far away, 

Everything I have is willy nilly, 
My sole heir is a silly Billy, 
And my two daughters in nitty gritty, 
Think am an old nitwit and crazy, 
Still I choose to stay, 
Isolated and far away, 

My husband was a fuddy duddy, 
With a pot belly trying to look dandy, 
He got drunk, drowned and found in a beach so sandy, 
And now my babies are left with no daddy, 
Still I choose to stay, 
Isolated and far away, 

Behind this four walls, 
Ill crumble and fall, 
Clogging the wishful wells, 
Are the pennies that fell after all? 
Still I choose to stay, 
Isolated and far away,
