    I got no time for the corner boys
    Down in the street making all that noise
    Don't want no whores on eighth avenue
    'Cause tonight I wanna be with you

    Tonight I'm gonna take that ride
    Across the river to the Jersey side
    Take my baby to the carnival
    And I'll take her on all the rides

    'Cause down the shore everything's all right
    You and your baby on a Saturday night
    You know all my dreams come true
    When I'm walking down the street with you

    Sing sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
    Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey girl
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la

    You know she thrills me with all her charms
    When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms
    My little girl gives me everything
    I know that some day she'll wear my ring

    So don't bother me man, I ain't got no time
    I'm on my way to see that girl of mine
    'Cause nothing matters in this whole wide world
    When you're in love with a Jersey girl

    Sing sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
    Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jjersey girl
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la

    When I call your name, I can sleep all night
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
    Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey girl
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la

  • Tom Waits On Late Show With David Letterman - Chicago HD

    6:17

    Tom Waits appeared on Monday evening's edition of Late Night With David Letterman, where he performed Chicago, from his most recent album, 2011's Bad As Me, live for the first time. Musicians joining Waits on stage included his son Casey Waits on drums, long time bassist Larry Taylor, guitarist David Hidalgo, keyboardist Augie Myers and guitarist Big Bill Morganfield.


    Thomas Alan Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer, songwriter, musician, composer, and actor. His lyrics often focus on the underbelly of society and are delivered in his trademark deep, gravelly voice. He worked primarily in jazz during the 1970s, but his music since the 1980s has reflected greater influence from blues, rock, vaudeville, and experimental genres.

    Waits was born and raised in a middle-class family in Pomona, California. Inspired by the work of Bob Dylan and the Beat Generation, he began singing on the San Diego folk music circuit as a teenager. He relocated to Los Angeles in 1972, where he worked as a songwriter before signing a recording contract with Asylum Records. His first albums were the jazz-oriented Closing Time (1973) and The Heart of Saturday Night (1974), which reflected his lyrical interest in nightlife, poverty, and criminality. He repeatedly toured the United States, Europe, and Japan, and attracted greater critical recognition and commercial success with Small Change (1976), Blue Valentine (1978), and Heartattack and Vine (1980). He produced the soundtrack for Francis Ford Coppola's film One from the Heart (1981), and subsequently made cameo appearances in several Coppola films.

    In 1980, Waits married Kathleen Brennan, split from his manager and record label, and moved to New York City. With Brennan's encouragement and frequent collaboration, he pursued a more experimental and eclectic musical aesthetic influenced by the work of Harry Partch and Captain Beefheart. This was reflected in a series of albums released by Island Records, including Swordfishtrombones (1983), Rain Dogs (1985), and Franks Wild Years (1987). He continued appearing in films, notably starring in Jim Jarmusch's Down by Law (1986), and also made theatrical appearances. With theatre director Robert Wilson, he produced the musicals The Black Rider and Alice, first performed in Hamburg. Having returned to California in the 1990s, his albums Bone Machine (1992), The Black Rider (1993), and Mule Variations (1999) earned him increasing critical acclaim and multiple Grammy Awards. In the late 1990s, he switched to the record label ANTI-, which released Blood Money (2002), Alice (2002), Real Gone (2004), and Bad as Me (2011).

    Despite a lack of mainstream commercial success, Waits has influenced many musicians and gained an international cult following, and several biographies have been written about him. In 2015, he was ranked at No. 55 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.

    Heartattack And Vine by Tom Waits from the album 'Heartattack And Vine'

    Lyrics

    liar liar with your pants
    on fire, white spades hang-
    in’ on the telephone wire,
    gamblers reevaluate along
    the dotted line, you’ll
    never recognize yourself
    on heartattack and vine.

    doctor lawyer beggar
    man thief, philly joe remark-
    able looks on in disbelief,
    if you want a taste of mad-
    ness, you’ll have to wait in
    line, you’ll probably see
    someone you know on
    heartattack and vine.

    boney’s high on china
    white, shorty found a punk,
    don’t you know there ain’t
    no devil, there’s just god
    when he’s drunk, well this
    stuff will probably kill
    you, let’s do another line,
    what you say you meet me
    down on heartattack and
    vine.

    see that little jersey girl
    in the see-through top,
    with the peddle pushers
    sucking on a soda pop, well
    i bet she’s still a virgin but
    it’s only twenty-five ’til
    nine, you can see a million
    of ’em on heartattack and
    vine.

    better off in iowa against
    your scrambled eggs, than
    crawling down cahuenga
    on a broken pair of legs,
    you’ll find your ignorance
    is blissful every goddamn
    time, you’re waitin’ for the
    rtd on heartattack and vine.

    Dead and Lovely by Tom Waits from the album 'Real Gone'

    Lyrics

    She was a middle class girl
    In over her head
    She thought she could
    Stand up in the deep end
    He had a bullet proof smile
    He had money to burn
    She thought she had the moon
    In her pocket...

    But now she's dead
    She's so dead forever
    Dead and lovely now

    I've always been told to
    Remember this
    Don't let a fool kiss you
    Never marry for love
    He was hard to impress
    He knew everyone's secrets
    He wore her on his arm
    Just like jewelry
    He never gave but he got
    He kept her on a leash
    He's not the kind of wheel
    You fall asleep at

    But now she's dead
    She's so dead
    Forever dead and
    Lovely now

    Come closer look deep
    You've fallen fast
    Just like a plane on a
    Stormy sea
    She made up someone to be
    She made up somewhere to
    Be from
    This is one business in the
    World where that's no
    Problem at all
    Every thing that is left
    They will only plow under
    Soon every one you know
    Will be gone

    But now she's dead
    She's so dead
    Forever dead and
    Lovely now

    I've always been told to
    Remember this
    Don't let a kiss fool you
    Never marry for love
    Now they're all watching
    The sea
    What's lost can never be broken
    Her roots were sweet
    But they were shallow

    But now she's dead
    She's so dead
    Forever dead and
    Lovely now

    Lyrics

    hey charley i’m pregnant
    and living on 9th street
    right above a dirty bookstore
    off euclid avenue
    and i stopped takin dope
    and i quit drinkin whiskey
    and my old man plays the trombone
    and works out at the track

    and he says that he loves me
    even though its not his baby
    and he says that he’ll raise him up
    like he would his own son
    and he gave me a ring
    that was worn by his mother
    and he takes me out dancin
    every saturday nite

    and hey charley i think about you
    everytime i pass a fill in station
    on account of all the grease
    you used to wear in your hair
    and i still have that record
    of little anthony & the imperials
    but someone stole my record playa
    now how do you like that?

    hey charley i almost went crazy
    after mario got busted
    so i went back to omaha to
    live with my folks
    but everyone i used to know
    was either dead or in prison
    so i came back to minneapolis
    this time i think i’m gonna slay

    hey charley i think i’m happy
    for the first time since my accident
    and i wish i had all the money
    that we used to spend on dope
    i’d buy me a used car lot
    and i wouldn’t sell any of em
    i’d just drive a different car
    every day, dependin on how
    i feel

    hey charley
    for chrissakes
    do you want to know the
    truth of it?
    i don’t have a husband
    he don’t play the trombone
    and i need to borrow money
    to pay this lawyer
    and charley, hey
    i’ll be eligible for parole
    come valentines day.

    The Early Years Volume Two. Lyrics:
    In between love, trying to scheme love
    Who can tell what we may find?
    Never thought love, that I'd get caught, love
    Between the magic in your eyes

    Your love's like wind and it's so cool and breezy
    Never thought that love could be so easy

    In between love, trying to scheme love
    In between love, again

    In between love, trying to scheme love
    Who can tell what we may find?
    All this time, love,
    I was so blind, love
    To the feelings in my mind

    Your love's like wind and it's so cool and breezy
    Never thought that love could be so easy
    In between love, trying to scheme love
    In between love, again

    What Keeps Mankind Alive by Tom Waits from the album 'Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards'

    Lyrics

    You gentlemen who think you have a mission
    to purge us of the seven deadly sins
    should first sort out the basic food position
    then start your preaching that's where it begins

    you lot who preach restraint and watch your waist as well
    should learn for once the way the world is run
    however much you twist or whatever lies that you tell
    food is the first thing morals follow on

    so first make sure that those who are now starving
    get proper helpings when we all start carving
    what keeps mankind alive

    what keeps mankind alive
    the fact that millions
    are daily tortured stifled punished silenced and oppressed
    mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
    in keeping its humanity repressed
    for once you must try not to shirk the facts
    mankind is kept alive
    by bestial acts

  • Tom Waits - Anywhere I Lay My Head

    2:46

    Lyrics:
    My head is spinning round
    My heart is in my shoes
    I went and set the Thames on fire
    Now I must come back down
    She's laughing in her sleeve at me
    I can feel it in my bones
    But anywhere I'm gonna
    Lay my head, boys
    I'm will call my home

    Well I see that
    The world is upside down
    My pockets were filled up with gold
    Now the clouds have covered o'er
    And the wind is blowing cold
    I don't need anybody
    Because I learned to be alone
    And anywhere
    I lay my head, boys
    I will call my home
