MISERY’S THE RIVER OF THE WORLD

Video by Richard Borge

Lyrics and Music by Tom Waits:

Misery's the River of the World.
Misery's the River of the World.

The higher 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 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 the 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!
