OLD PIGWEED

(Mark Knopfler)

Everything was in there

that you'd want to see

corned beef and onions

and true love

turnips and tinned tomatoes

parsnips and a few potatoes

a couple extra blessings

from above

now this here mingle-mangle

was my best one yet

a big old bad goulash

worth waiting for

and i'm just about to dip my can

taste some brotherhood of man

when i get a feeling

that there's a flaw

who put old pigweed

in the mulligan

was it you

who put old pigweed

in the mulligan stew

i close my eyes

for just a minute

what do you do

who put old pigweed

in the mulligan stew

you won't find self-improvement or philosophy

in a dumpster sitting by

the kitchen door

there's plenty leek and humble pie

ain't too much ham on rye

sometimes i wonder

what i'm looking for

but a spoonful of forgiveness

goes a long, long way

and we all should do our best

to get along

add a pinch of kindness crumbling

to your loving dumpling

okra for thickening

when something's wrong

but who put old pigweed

in the mulligan

was it you

who put old pigweed

in the mulligan stew

i close my eyes

for just a minute

what do you do

who put old pigweed

in the mulligan stew
