Lyrics

(Source: as heard, with help from www.sinead-oconnor.com)

Ran down and the lady said it.
It got torn down
And the priest just said it
Got burned.
They give me five years, five years,
It's my turn.
Ran down and the lady said it.
It got torn down
And the priest just said it
Got burned
They give me five years, five years,
It's my turn.
Oh, Jerusalem.
Oh, Jerusalem.
Getting tired of you doing this to me.
I'm gonna hit you if you say that to me
One more time.
I want to see you,
And you're saying you're busy.
I want to stop it,
And you said it would be easy.
It sure takes time.
Hope your next time
Gonna be the last time.
Hope you don't two-time.
It'll be the best time.
There won't be no next time.
It's show time.
I hope you do
What you said
When you swore
You'd make it better,
Deliver all the letters
On time.
Jerusalem.
Jerusalem.
Jerusalem.
Jerusalem.
Jerusalem.
