HE THINKS HE'LL KEEP HER (Don Schlitz / Mary Chapin Carpenter) Mary Chapin Carpenter - 1992 She makes his coffee, she makes his bed She does the laundry, she keeps him fed When she was twenty-one she wore her mother's lace She said forever with a smile upon her face She does the car-pool, she PTA's Doctors and dentists, she drives all day When she was twenty-nine she delivered number three And every Christmas card showed a perfect family Everything runs right on time, years of practice and design Spit and polished till it shines, he thinks he'll keep her Everything is so benign, safest place you'll ever find God forbid you change your mind, he thinks he'll keep her She packs his suitcase, she sits and waits With no expression upon her face When she was thirty-six she met him at their door She said I'm sorry, I don't love you anymore Everything runs right on time, years of practice and design Spit and polish till it shines, he thinks he'll keep her Everything is so benign, safest place you'll ever find God forbid you change your mind, he thinks he'll keep her (Instrumental Break) For fifteen years she had a job and not one raise in pay Now she's in the typing pool at minimum wage Everything runs right on time, years of practice and design Spit and polish till it shines, he thinks he'll keep her Everything is so benign, safest place you'll ever find At least until you change your mind, (He thinks he'll keep her) Alright!
