Lyrics FROM ONE LITTLE KISS
AND A WHOLE LOTTA LOVIN'
YOU BUILD A BIG MANSION
OF LOVE.
HIGH ON A HILL
OF HAPPINESS,
WITH SOMEONE
YOU'VE BEEN DREAMING OF.
YOU BUILD A WALL AROUND
WITH A LOT OF LOVIN',
ALL AROUND
YOUR MANSION OF LOVE
THEN ONE DAY
YOU HEAR
A STRANGE LITTLE SOUND,
TRYING TO TEAR
YOUR MANSION DOWN.

OH, CHIP CHIP,
YOU TELL A LITTLE LIE,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU MAKE YOUR BABY CRY,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU CHEAT A LITTLE BIT,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU QUARREL OVER IT.
ONE DAY
YOU'RE GONNA DISCOVER,
ONE LITTLE WRONG
LEADS TO ANOTHER.
CHIP CHIP,
CHIPPING AWAY,
CHIPPING AT
YOUR MANSION OF LOVE.

ONE LITTLE SPARK
WHEN IT STARTS
A-GLOWING,
CAN WARM
A BIG MANSION OF LOVE.
ONE LITTLE WRONG
BRINGS ON THE GLOOM,
PUTS A CHILL
IN EV'RY ROOM.

OH, CHIP CHIP,
YOU TELL A LITTLE LIE,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU MAKE YOUR BABY CRY,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU CHEAT A LITTLE BIT,
CHIP CHIP,
YOU QUARREL OVER IT.
ONE DAY
YOU'RE GONNA DISCOVER,
ONE LITTLE WRONG
LEADS TO ANOTHER.
CHIP CHIP,
CHIPPING AWAY,
CHIPPING AT
YOUR MANSION OF LOVE.
