      About "He Thinks He'll Keep Her"

      Lyrics for Mary Chapin Carpenter - "He Thinks He'll Keep Her"

      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 ev'ry Christmas card showed a perfect family

      Ev'rything runs right on time
      Years of practice and design
      Spit and polish till it shines
      He thinks he'll keep her
      Ev'rything is so benign
      The 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 the door
      She said, "I'm sorry, I don't love you any more"

      Ev'rything runs right on time
      Years of practice and design
      Spit and polish till it shines
      He thinks he'll keep her
      Ev'rything is so benign
      The safest place you'll ever find
      God for bid you change your mind
      He thinks he'll keep her

      For fifteen years she had a job and not one raise in pay
      Now she's in the typing pool at minimum wage

      Ev'rything runs right on time
      Years of practice and design
      Spit and polish till it shines
      He thinks he'll keep her
      Ev'rything is so benign
      The safest place you'll ever find
      At least until you change your mind
      (He thinks he'll keep her)
