The wise man built his house upon the rock
The wise man built his house upon the rock
The wise man built his house upon the rock
And the rains came a tumblin' down

Are you a wise man
Yeah yeah yeah
Are you a foolish man
No no no
Are you a wise man
Yeah yeah yeah
Are you a foolish man
No no no

There were two men who had a job to do
To build a house that was strong and new
They looked all around for a place just right
They searched all day for the perfect sight

The first man found a spot of beach front land
Thought he'd build his house on a bed of sand
Though the sand was weak shiftin' to and fro
Still he built that house as the story goes
No no no no no no no no no

The second man looked 'til some land he found
This land was sound it was on solid ground
Though this land was filled with lots of rocks
And stones
Still he built his house made the rocks his home
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Well they built those houses what a pretty sight
They both stood strong 'til that awful night
When a storm blew in and the rains all came
Made the first house fall
They say the sand's to blame
No no no no no no no no no

But the house on the rocks stood strong and tall
Never moved an inch not a swaying wall
So remember friend know what I say is true
Build your house on the rock
You'll be a wise man too
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
