    Lyrics

    Now, I know a man; he's a hard workin' man
    He gets up real early, and he goes down town
    And about fifteen minutes after he's been gone
    There's a big milk truck pulls up on the lawn
    And that milkman rushes up to the door
    Where that man's wife is waitin' in a kimono
    And she plants a big old kiss on his cheek and they go inside
    And that truck never moves for an hour or two

    Well, it's none of my business
    One day I called him aside and told him what was goin' on
    While he was gone
    And he said, "Well I guess that's so, but do you know
    We're never outta milk or cottage cheese or yogurt
    Ice cream, or none of them other cowy things"

    [Chorus]
    I guess he's makin' the best of a bad situation
    Don't wanna make waves, can't you see
    He's just makin' the best of a bad situation
    Reckon I'd do the same if it was me

    Now I know a man; he's an educated man
    He's an alligator wrestler
    He jumps right in there and grabs them long green boogers
    By whatever you grab them long green boogers by
    Well, one day he's got a full Nelson on this big alligator
    When this other alligator sneaks up and bites his right ear plumb off
    Didn't bat an eye, just crawled off in the shade and went to sleep
    The alligator, not the man

    Well, it's none of my business
    One day I said, "Well, it's sure too bad about that little accident that you had
    'Cause now your hat's gonna fall down over your eyes
    And you can't ever be gypsy
    'Cause you don't have no place to wear a gold earring"
    He just looked me right straight in the eye and said, "Huh?"

    [Chorus]

    Now I know a lady; she's a mighty fine lady
    Got a heart of gold; she wouldn't harm a fly
    She's just tryin' to get by and keep her house in order
    But you know that her husband
    He worked so hard that he come unglued
    He come unwrapped; he just snapped; thinks he's a chicken
    That's right, one of them cackling Colonel Sanders types
    He roosts in the bush by the side of the house

    Well, it's none of my business, but one day I said
    "Have you ever thought about findin' him a doctor who could make him well"
    And she said "Well, I have now and then, but then again
    He don't eat much, just chickenfeed
    And all that peckin' in the ground don't hurt nothin'
    Heaven knows we can use the eggs"

    I guess she's makin' the best of a bad situation
    Don't wanna make waves, can't you see
    She's just makin' the best of a bad situation
    Reckon I'd do the same if it was me

    We're all just makin' the best of a bad situation
    We're all in this together you and me
