Misery Is The River Of The World by Tom Waits


Misery`s the river of the world
Misery`s the river of the world
The higher that the monkey can climb
the more he shows his tail
Call no man happy `til he dies
There`s no milk at the bottom of the pail
God builds a church
The devil builds a chapel
Like the thistles that are growing
`round the trunk of a tree
All the good in the world
You can put inside a thimble
And you still have room for you and me
If there`s one thing you can say
About Mankind
There`s nothing kind about man
You can drive out nature with a pitch fork
But it always comes roaring back again
Misery`s the river of the world
Misery`s the river of the world
Misery`s the river of the world
For want of a bird
The sky was lost
For want of a nail
A shoe was lost
For want of a life
A knife was lost
For want of a toy
A child was lost
Misery`s the river of the world
Misery`s the river of the world
Everybody row! Everybody row!
Misery`s the river of the world
Misery`s the river of the world
Everybody row! Everybody row!
Everybody row!
