(Rag and bone)
Rag and bone
(Rag and bone)
Rag and bone

Meg, look at this place
(What? Whoo!)
Well, this place is like a mansion
It's like a mansion, look at all this stuff!
(I don't know)
Look I see something over there
(Whoo!)
Man

Well, can't you hear we're selling rag and bone?
Bring out your junk and we'll give it a home
A broken trumpet or a telephone
Come on, come on, come on
Come on and give it to me, yeah

Come on, come on, come on
Come on and give it to me
Rag and bone, rag and bone
Come on, come on, come on
Come on and give it to me

I'll have your pretty
Your pretty little rags and bones

Well, man, look at all this, you don't want it?
(What is that?)
You sure you don't want it, man?
(Mmhmm)
Take it

It's just things that you don't want, I can use em
Meg can use 'em, we can do something with 'em
We'll make something out of em
Make some money out of 'em at least
(This fits me perfect, give it to me)
Hey, if you ain't gonna use it just give it to us
We'll give it a home

Well, have they got something shiny for me?
Anybody got a Christmas tree?
Can you part with a toilet seat?
A jump up, a jump up, a jump up
Come on and give it to me
Rag and bone

We wanna get it, granny, while it's hot
You think it's trash, granny, but it's not
We'll be taking whatever you got
A give up, a give up, a give up
Come on and give it to me, whoo!

All of your pretty
Your pretty little rags and bones

(I saw some stuff in your yard)
(Are you gonna give it to us?)
Aww, Meg, don't be rude
(Or not?)
They might need it, if you don't want it, we'll take it
If you don't wanna give it to us we keep walking by
We keep going, we're not tired but got plenty of places to go

Lots of homes we ain't been to yet
On west side, the southwest side
Middle-east, rich house, dog house, outhouse
Old folks house, house for unwed mothers

Halfway homes, catacombs, twilight zones
Looking for techniques, turntables to gramophones
So take a last lick of your ice cream cone
And lock up what you still wanna own
But please be kind
(Take your time)
And don't rewind
(It's fine)

All of your pretty
Your pretty little rags and bones, yeah
Your pretty little rags and bones
Jump up, jump up, jump up
Come on and give it to me

Oh, your pretty little rags and bones
Come on, come on, come on
Come on and give it to us
Yeah, ay, ay, oh yeah

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
