Richie, Lionel - Brick House Lyrics

She's a brick house
Mighty might just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick house
The lady's stacked and that's a fact,
ain't holding nothing back.

She's a brick house
She's the one, the only one,
who's built like a amazon [pronounced am-a-ka-zawn]
We're together everybody knows,
and here's how the story goes.

She knows she got everything
a woman needs to get a man, yeah.
How can she lose with what she use
36-24-36, what a winning hand!


The clothes she wears, the sexy ways,
make an old man wish for younger days
She knows she's built and knows how to please
Sure enough to knock a man to his knees


Shake it down, shake it down now [repeat]

  12. Candida Hernández Hernández

    Su música llega a nuestros corazones y no llena de a legrias nostalgia por eso le pido que nunca dejé de tocar de cantar de escribir canciones de amor por qué cuando ya no esté nadies vas a cantar como Lionel Ritchie

  13. aimee ward

    I was laying in the middle of the night and my bf and I woke up and out of no where I said brick house and it was all over with I had to listen to it. We were trying to sing it but couldn’t remember all the words so I had to get on here and who else better to hear sing it than Lionel Richie. Love this song. Lol

    Frickin brilliant! what a band he's got behind him!

  26. Joca Jocajhonny

    Bons tempo onde funk era musica e não apologia a drogas,alcool e crime.

    Marcos David

    Joca Jocajhonny - Totalmente de acordo. E escuto esse tipo de música desde os meus 5 anos!

  27. Benjamín Gaete

    10 years ago

  28. Maria Galdina Guimarães Mendes Pereira

    Wonderful...forever Brick House!!

  29. EmpressOfWyoming58

    Who is the guitar player at :59?

    David Howard

    +EmpressOfWyoming58 ... or Jon Bon Jovi 😀


    @David Howard Thank you. I looked him up. I see that he plays with Lionel, has his own solo work, does session work with many big talents.

    David Howard

    +EmpressOfWyoming58 Yes , he is a bonafide musician who is extremely talented in his own right.

    Nicholas Cabral

    David Howard yeah I thought it was Bon Jovi

    Leyla F

    He’s still playing with Lionel today, saw Lionel on yesterday and his bands still the same (wind and guitarists)

  30. Manuel Marmol


  31. Hayden Godfrey

    OMG that tenor player is hilarious when Lionel goes up to him. Love this performance!

  32. cinnaplid

    This song = instant happy feet. Great performance!

    Maria Silva


  33. Stonedog23

    Walter Orange's classic vocals on Brickhouse sound better than when Lionel sings it.

    lawrence worrell

    +Stonedog23 agreed but at least Lionel can pull it off whereas Walter sounds mega horrible trying to sing the Commodores classics that Lionel sang lead on which is near all of them #JustSaying


    +lawrence worrell True definitely. But it's ironic that the group's biggest star didn't sing lead on their biggest charting song. I have no ideal why Lionel and the remaining Commodores won't give us one more tour. Only one died, right ?

    lawrence worrell

    +Stonedog23 yeah and Thomas, Ronald & Lionel have reunited quite a few's William that's still holding the grudge.....btw..."Brick House" is not their biggest charting song


    +lawrence worrell William King, huh, that's unfortunate Walter would be on board, I hope. My apologies, I was thinking the song white people grabbed a hold of was the biggest across the board. My ticket is bought when it happens.

    Cory 182

    That's why Lionel didn't originally do it

  34. Diana Cunningham

    go baby

  35. Jamilah Gillett

    I love him 👏👌😍

  48. Robbie Beaman

  49. Ruben Alsaker

  64. popomczowzow

    that drummer is either a very effeminate man or just about the most butch lesbian I've ever seen

    David Howard

    That drummer has more bitches in one day than you have had in 10 of your lifetimes.

  65. PnoyGamur24

    just listening make me run out of breath

  66. Sahara SelaznoG

    To me and my mother, a brick house has always meant a woman who is stacked and built(meaning curves in all the right places, not some skinny minnie w/ nothing). Oh yeah, we're both brick houses by the way. Hee hee.*
