Subject: John Prine's 'Dear Abby'
All right, I realize this may be hiding in the DT somewhere, but if it is, I can't find it. Or it may have been brought up in a previous thread, but the search engine has gone wonky and won't let me look. So I must rely on fragile human memory.

You know this, I know you do. It's the one with the chorus that goes,

Noisemaker, Noisemaker (varied with each verse)
You have no complaint
You are what you are
And you ain't what you ain't
Just listen up, Mister, and listen up good
Stop wishing for bad luck and knockin' on wood
Signed, Dear Abby.

Anyone want to give me the rest? I'd be much obliged.
