It ain't the mendin' that's hard,
it's threadin' the needle.
If you got that ole cheap thread,
it frays at the ends
no matter how you lick and twist.
But, even the high-dollar stuff bends like the devil
when you get it to the needle's eye.
You can squint and study
and think you got it all lined up on the straight and narrow,
only to miss it by a mile.
But, whatcha gonna do, but try to get it lined up again?
Ain't gonna be no mendin'
'less you get through the eye of that needle.
