Dug up my den, dug up my roots

From meccano to legoland

Verse
F#         Ebm          Bbm
Whistling men in yellow vans

They came and drew us diagrams
          Ebm                 Bbm

Its wall to wall and brick to brick

They work so fast it makes you sick

Its build

Ba-ba-ba-ba-Build (it's Build, a road for us to cross)
             Bbm                               B
