Mark Knopfler - Scaffolder's wife

Artist: Mark Knopfler

Title: Scaffolder's wife

----------------

the scaffolder's wife

driving out of the yard

with a face that's as hard

as a scaffolder's bar -

when she goes into town

she might take the top down

- on the car

the quick little steps

in the stiletto boots

and the hair with the roots

she comes in as a rule

to get the nails done

and the tan for the sun

when the kids are in school

don't begrudge her the MERC

it's been nothing but work

in/and a hard life

losing her looks

over company books

- the scaffolder's wife

in the wicked old days

when they went it alone

kept the company going

on a wing and a prayer

they don't pay what they owe

when they have the cash flow

- they don't care

don't begrudge her the MERC

it's been nothing but work

in/and a hard life

losing her looks

over company books

- the scaffolder's wife

...the scaffolder's wife
