It's Raggedy Andy clan; fancy the pretty stitches
'til he learned the skinny on the fragility's physics
Raggedy Andy is a rag doll character (along with Raggedy Ann) put together from cloth scraps. A patchwork doll.
A Raggedy Andy clan might be a group of guys who are kind of rag-tag, rough around the edges, making due with what they have.
Just like a ragdoll, which looks nice but can fall to rags if you pull out the stitching, he’s saying these guys looked good until he realized how easily their lives could come apart.
