Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: He Thinks He'll Keep Her
Lyrics for Album: Triple Feature [2010]

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 carpool, she P.T.A.'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 polish 'til it shines, he thinks he'll keep her

Everything is so benign, the safest place you'll ever find

God forbid you'd 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 the door

She said I'm sorry, I don't love you anymore


For 15 years she had a job and not one raise in pay

Now she's in the typing pool at minimum wage


(At least until you change your mind)
