Noirsville Tune of the Week

Tom Waits - Live

Til the Money Run's Out

Check this strange beverage that falls out from the sky
Splashin bagdad on the hudson in Panther Martin's eyes
He's high and outside wearin candy apple red
Scarlett gave him twenty-seven stitches in his head
With a pint of green chartreuse ain't nothin seems right
You buy the sunday paper on a saturday night

Can't you hear the thunder someone stole my watch
I sold a quart of blood and bought a half a pint of scotch
Someone tell those chinamen on Telegraph Canyon Road
When youre on the bill with the spoon there ain't no time to unload
So bye bye baby baby bye bye

Droopy stranger lonely dreamer toy puppy and the prado
Were laughin as they piled into Olmos eldorado
Jesus whispered eeni meany miney moe
They're too proud to duck their heads that's why they bring it down so low
So bye bye baby baby bye bye

The pointed man is smack dab in the middle of July
Swingin from the rafters in his brand new tie
He said I can't go back to that hotel room all they do is shout
But I'll stay with you baby till the money runs out
So bye bye baby baby bye bye

So bye bye baby baby bye bye
Bye bye bye
By bye baby baby bye bye
Bye bye baby baby bye bye
