Raised right men

by Tom Waits


There ain´t enough raised right men
It takes a raised right man to keep a happy hen
I said there ain´t enough raised right men

Heavens to murkatroid
Miners to coal
A good women can make a diamond out of a measly lump of coal
You need the patience of a glacier
If you can wait that long
Open up his window and admit it that you´re wrong

They´re ain´t enough raised right men
It takes raised right men to keep a happy hen

Mackey Debiasi
Was a complicated man
He quarreled with his woman
And she quarreled with her man
His head was just too thick
So she knocked out a tooth
He´s that lonely man on the Turnpike in the
Toll takers booth

They´re ain´t enough raised right men

Gunplay Maxwell and
Flat Nose George
Ice Pick Ed Newcomb
On a slab in the morgue
Flat Nose looked at Gunplay
And they all looked at me
With a good woman´s love we
Could have saved all three
And there ain´t enough raised right men
It takes raised right men to keep a happy hen
There ain´t enough raised right men
