Me Want It Now

1. When you’re in Alabama,

You should stop and see,

The doll house in the graveyard,

Where a tombstone ought to be,

For it tells a story,

That will cause your head to bow,

There’s words engraved upon it,

That reads “Me Want It Now”,

The toys all tell a story,

Of a little girl,

Who longed to have a playhouse,

While down here in this world,

So she went to Daddy,

And told her plans one day,

He promised he would build it,

Her little heart was gay.


2. He promised he would build it,

His promise was true,

At last he built her doll house,

Just to place it on a tomb,

Jesus up in heaven,

That day heard all of her plans,

And so he built a doll house,

The fairest in the land,

He sent angels for her,

They took her away,

But just as she was leaving,

Dad turned to hear her say,

“Dad, where is my doll house?

My playmates ask about,

Lets show it to them Daddy,

Because me want it now”.


3. He built a pretty playhouse,

Pretty as can be,

He placed it in a graveyard,

What a lovely sight to see,

It has doors and windows,

And there’s dollies everywhere,

He wrote these words upon it,

They say, “Me Want It Now”.

Now she is up in heaven,

There with boys and girls,

And there she owns a playhouse,

It’s all made out of pearl,

If she spoke from heaven,

Her dear kind Dad would hear,

“Jesus built me a doll house,

And so me have it now.”
