What Good Is A Castle
Joe Bataan Lyrics


What good is a castle
Way high upon a hill
If you're chained down and you're crippled
And you're six stories high

What good is a playground
Full of lovers beneath your window pane
If every time you watch them
It starts to rain
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

What good is the sound
Of a child of the world without a girl
What good is a heart
After it's torn apart

What good is a judge
Or a jury without a trial
What good is a daddy
Or a mommy without a child

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Something inside of me
Keeps repeating
You better hang on, boy
Whoa, whoa, whoa

Something inside of me
Begs me to hang on, whoa, whoa
How can I continue
Or move a step at all
My days are all numbered
So I'll take my fall

What good is a castle
Way high upon a hill
If you're chained down and you're crippled
And you're six stories high

What good is a playground
Full of lovers beneath your window pane
If every time you watch them
It starts to rain

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

What good is a castle
Way high on a hill
If you're chained down and you're crippled
And you're six stories high

What good is a playground
Full of lovers beneath your window pane
If every time you watch them
It starts to feeling that it'll pour down rain

Hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa

What good is the sound
Of a child of the world without a girl
What good is a heart
After it's torn apart

What good is a judge
Or a jury without a trial
What good is a daddy
Or a mommy without a child

Hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa

Something inside of me
Keeps repeating
You better hang on, boy
Whoa

Something inside of me
Begs me to hang on, whoa
How can I continue
Or move a step at all
My days are all numbered
So I'll take my fall

What good is a castle
Way high on a hill
If you're chained down and you're crippled
And you're six stories high

What good is a playground
Full of lovers beneath your window pane
If every time you watch them
It starts to feeling that it'll pour down rain

Hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa

Every time I hear this song it takes me to a place that seems so far away right now . My brothers favorite song has been gone so long now but he sang it so well I can hear him now god is good we always remember those we love. Especially thru song and music ❤️👏

I LOVE THIS SONG! I FEEL IF I'M LIVING SUMMER ON THE STREET IN NEW YORK.

Any one growing up on the streets of New York City during a certain time period can relate to every word Joe sings. You can hear the heartache, and yet, his songs are filled with beauty and such soul. My Cloud is my favorite song of all time. I wish the guy would give a concert!

Raul Martinez

When I listen to Joe's songs, It takes me back to an innocent time in Brooklyn, NY.

It always brings me to silent tears to think of the music treasures we once had & lost.

Robert Velez

Joe Bataan had many hits like Gypsy Woman, Ordinary Guy, My Cloud etc: yet What's good is a castle is my all time favorite for its haunting melody has never left me from a child to an old man which I am now!

RedHen TV
