Don't Get Above Your Raising
by Elvis Costello

Well, I got a gal that's sweet to me
She just ain't what she used to be
Just a little high headed
That's plain to see

Don't get above your raisin'
Stay down to earth with me

Now lookee here gal don't you high hat me
I ain't forgot what you used to be
When you didn't have nothin'
That was plain to see

Don't get above your raisin'
Stay down to earth with me

Now you don't have to raise your head so high
Every time you pass me by
'Cause it don't mean nuthin'
To me you see

Don't get above your raisin'
Stay down to earth with me

Now look here, gal, you'd better be yourself
And leave that other stuff on the shelf
You're a country, baby
That's plain to see

Don't get above your raisin'
Stay down to earth with me

Well, I got a gal that's sweet to me
She just ain't what she used to be
Just a little high headed
That's plain to see

Don't get above your raisin'
Stay down to earth with me
