Lyrics:
Well, some people ain't no damn good
     You can trust `em, you can't love `em,
        no good deed goes unpunished
     And I don't mind being their whippin' boy
     I've had that pleasure for years and years
     No, no, I never was a sinner, tell me what else can I do?
     Second best is what you get  till you learn to bend the rules
     And time respects no person and what you lift up must fall
     There waitin' outside to claim my crumblin' walls

     Saw my picture in the paper, read the news around my face
     And now some people don't want to treat me the same

     A - - - / G/A - - - / (8x)
     E - - - /    /     /    //

 C:  When the walls come tumblin' down
     When the walls come crumblin' - crumblin'
     When the walls come tumblin' - tumblin' down

     A - - - / G - D - / x2 / x2 / A - - - / ( A - - - / G/A - - - / x2 //)

     Well some people say I'm obnoxious and lazy
     I'm uneducated, my opinion means nothin'
     But I know I'm a real good dancer
     Don't need to look over my shoulder to see what I'm after
     Everybody's got their problems, ain't no new news here
     I'm the same old trouble you've been havin' for years
     Don't confuse the problem with the issue, girl, it's perfectly clear
     Just a human desire to have you come near

     Want to put my arms around you, feel your breath in my ear
     You can bend me, you can break me but you better stand clear

 C:  When the walls come tumblin' down
     When the walls come crumblin' - crumblin'
     When the walls come tumblin' - tumblin' down

     Want to put my arms around you, feel your breath in my ear
     You can bend me, you can break me but you better stand clear

 C:  When the walls come tumblin' down
     When the walls come crumblin' - crumblin'
     When the walls come tumblin' - tumblin' down

 C:  When the walls come tumblin' down
     When the walls come crumblin' - crumblin'
     When the walls come tumblin' - tumblin' down
