      Tom Waits - Misery Is the River of the World Música y Letra

      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 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
      
      The higher that the monkey can climb
      The more he shows his tail
      Call no man happy till he dies
      There's no milk at the bottom of the pail
      
      God tempers all the winds for the new shorn lambs
      The devil knows the bible like the back of his hand
      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
      
      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
      
      And 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
      Misery's the river of the world
      Everybody row, everybody row
      Everybody row, everybody row
      Misery's the river of the world
      Misery's the river of the world
      Everybody row, everybody row
      Everybody row, everybody row
      Everybody row
      Misery's the river of the world
      Misery's the river of the world
      Misery's the river of the world
      Misery's the river of the world
      Everybody row, everybody row
      Everybody row
