    Lyrics

    Maggie came home one day with a raggedy, Raggedy Ann.
    She said " Mama, look what I found in the neighbors garbage can."
    It had a missing left arm, and a right button eye hanging by a thread
    She carried it gently up to her room and laid it on her bed
    with her other dolls.

    Chorus:
    She loves the broken ones, the ones that need a little patchin' up
    She see's the diamond in the rough and makes it shine like new
    It really doesn't take that much, a willing heart and a tender touch
    If everybody loved like she does, there'd be a lot less broken ones.

    Twenty years later in a shelter on Eighteenth Avenue
    A seventeen year old girl shows up all black and blue
    with needle tracks in her left arm, almost too weak to stand,
    She says,"I'm lost and I need help", as Maggie takes her hand
    And says, "Come on in!"

    Chorus

    Bridge:
    If you call her an angel, she'd be quick to say to you
    She's just doing what the one who died for her would do

    Love the broken ones, the ones that need a little patchin' up
    See the diamond in the rough and make it shine like new
    It really doesn't take that much, a willing heart and a tender touch
    If everybody loved like He does, there'd be a lot less broken ones
    If everybody loved like He does, there's be a lot less broke ones.
