Manhattan, Kansas

Manhattan, Kansas

Manhattan, Kansas ain?????™t no place to have a baby

When you got no man to give it his last name

And my folks back in Manhattan didn?????™t want me or my bundle

So I took my child and caught an evening train.

And I found a job in Denver washing dishes in a diner

At least it buys my baby milk to drink

He once told me I was pretty but the only ring it got me

Was the ring of grease that runs around the sink


Yes, I lay beside him gentle

??????Cause he told me that he loved me

And he made me dance before the music played

But at least I didn?????™t beg him

I?????™d rather wash his dishes

??????Cause it makes me feel as if my hands are clean

At night I stand here thinkin?????™

??????Bout the man back home in Kansas

And how his folks just turned away the shame

And I stare down through the soapsuds

And reached down and pull the drain plug

And I watch as Manhattan drains away

(Repeat chorus)

Yes it makes me feel as if my hands are clean

Manhattan, Kansas /
