Mattie's Rag
Gerry Rafferty
Oh Mattie open up the door, that?s right I?m home again
You?ve got a big surprise in store, turn ?round and count to ten
Wait ?til you see what I got you, well you?ll say it?s a magic thing
It?s like an old mandolin, man you just wind him up and he?ll start to sing.

I?ve been away for quite a while, and I want to hear all your news
Speak to me, let me see you smile, cause I?ve had those homesick blues
When I go down to that city I just don?t know wrong from right
When I go back to you Mattie, well you make me see the light.

Love is a singular thing, it can take you up or bring you down
Yes love is a song that I sing, so come on now Mattie listen to the sound
When you grow up we?ll sit and talk of how things used to be
I?ll be a grand old man of rock with all these memories.
