    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

  • On The Nickel ~ Tom Waits - 1979 live

    4:45

    the sound is a little odd at first but it improves after first minute ... I promise !

    sweetest version I've seen on YT ღ

    5th Street & Main, Los Angeles On the Nickel, a wino's lullaby

    Lyric:
    It says sticks and stones can break my bones
    but I always will be true
    And when your mama's dead and gone,
    I'll sing this lullaby just for you ...

    What becomes of little boys
    who never say their prayers?
    They're sleeping like a baby
    on the nickel over there ...

    And if you chew tobacco
    and wish upon a star
    You'll find out where the scarecrows sit,
    man they look like punch lines between the cars.

    I know a place where a royal flush
    can never beat a pair.
    And even Thomas Jefferson
    is on the nickel and is over there ...

    So ring around the rosy,
    sleepin' in the rain.
    You're always late for supper
    and man you let me down again ...

    I thought I heard a mockingbird,
    Roosevelt knows where.
    I'm whistling past the graveyard,
    and they're on the nickel over there ...

    So what becomes of little boys
    who run away from home?
    The world keeps gettin' bigger
    once you get out on your own.

    So climb up through that buttonhole
    and fall right up the stairs
    I'll show you where the short dogs go,
    they're on the nickel
    and over there ...

    Chorus of Waltzin' Matilda at end

    ​​
    Thomas Alan Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor.
    Waits has a distinctive voice, described by one critic as sounding like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months and then taken outside and run over with a car.[1] With this trademark growl, his incorporation of pre-rock styles such as blues, jazz, and Vaudeville, and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music,[2] Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona.
    ‌‌

In 1992 they began airing on KPDX Portland and then they move to KWBP in 1994. In 1995 they began airing on 22 Network One affiliates. In 1997 Network One shut down and the service moved to KOIN and in 2001, the service moved back to Phoenix, airing on KASW, then in 2002, moved to KPHO-TV. In 2003 they got their own station, KPHE-LP, at the time broadcasting on channel 19 in Mesa, Arizona, and changed their name to Bohemia Visual Music. KPHE moved to channel 44 in Phoenix in 2005.[2] Bohemia Visual Music changed their name to 24-7 Videos for a few months from mid-2005 to early-2006, then reverted to Bohemia Visual Music.

    5:12

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

    Drunk On The Moon by Tom Waits from the album 'The Heart Of Saturday Night'

    Lyrics

    Tight-slack clad girls on the graveyard shift
    'Neath the cement stroll, catch the midnight drift
    Cigar chewing Charlie in that newspaper nest
    Grifting hot horse tips on who's running the best

    And I'm blinded by the neon
    Don't try and change my tune
    Cause I thought I heard a saxophone
    I'm drunk on the moon

    And the moon's a silver slipper, it's pouring champagne stars
    And Broadway's(8) like a serpent pulling shiny top-down cars
    Laramer is teeming with that undulating beat
    And some Bonneville is screaming, it's way wilder down the street

    And I'm blinded by the neon
    Don't try and change my tune
    I thought I heard a saxophone
    I'm drunk on the moon

    Hearts flutter and race, the moon's on the wane
    Tarts mutter their dream hopes the night will ordain
    Come schemers and dancers, cherry delight
    As a Cleveland-bound Greyhound, and it cuts through the night

    And I've hawked all my yesterdays
    Don't try and change my tune
    Cause I thought I heard a saxophone
    I'm drunk on the moon

    4:05

    Tom Waits-Time, from the 1985 album 'Rain Dogs'. Backing video taken from a live performance on the 1988 film 'Big Time'.

    Lyrics:

    Well the smart money's on Harlow and the moon is in the street
    And the shadow boys are breaking all the laws
    And you're east of East Saint Louis and the wind is making speeches
    And the rain sounds like a round of applause
    And Napoleon is weeping in a carnival saloon
    His invisible fiancee's in the mirror
    And the band is going home, it's raining hammers, it's raining nails
    And it's true there's nothing left for him down here

    And it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time

    And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train
    You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
    And the things you can't remember tell the things you can't forget
    That history puts a saint in every dream

    Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off
    But these mama's boys just don't know when to quit
    And Mathilda asks the sailors Are those dreams or are those prayers?
    So close your eyes, son, and this won't hurt a bit

    Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time

    Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
    The boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street
    And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot
    And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet
    So put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips
    As the dish outside the window fills with rain
    Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
    And pay the fiddler off 'til I come back again

    Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time
    And it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time

    ALL THE WORLD IS GREEN Lyrics

    I fell into the ocean
    When you became my wife
    I risked it all aganist the sea
    To have a better life
    Marie you're the wild blue sky
    And men do foolish things
    You turn kings into beggars
    And beggars into kings

    Pretend that you owe me nothing
    And all the world is green
    We can bring back the old days again
    And all the world is green

    The fase forgives the mirror
    The worm forgives the plow
    The questions begs the answer
    Can you forgive me somehow
    Maybe when our story's over
    We'll go where it's always spring
    The band is playing our song again
    And all the world is green

    Pretend that you owe me nothing
    And all the world is green
    We can bring back the old days again
    And all the world is green

    The moon is yellow silver
    Oh the things that summer brings
    It's a love you'd kill for
    And all the world is green

    He is balancing a diamond
    On a blade of grass
    The dew will settle on our grave(s)
    When all the world is green

    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.

    Rudy's on the midway

    The monkey's on the ladder
    The devil shovels coal
    With crows as big as airplanes
    The lion has three heads
    And someone will eat the skin that he sheds
    And the earth died screaming
    The earth died screaming
    While I lay dreaming of you
    Well hell doesn't want you
    And heaven is full
    Bring me some water
    Put it in this skull
    I walk between the raindrops
    Wait in Bug House Square
    And the army ants
    They leave nothin' but the bones
    And the earth died screaming
    While I lay dreaming of you

    There was thunder
    There was lightning
    Then the stars went out
    And the moon fell from the sky
    It rained mackerel
    It rained trout
    And the great day of wrath has come
    And here's mud in your big red eye
    The poker's in the fire
    And the locusts take the sky
    And the earth died screaming
    While I lay dreaming of you

    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.

    Lyrics

    Well I hung on to Mary's stump
    I danced with a soldier's glee
    With a rum soaked crook
    And a big fat laugh
    I spent my last dollar on thee
    I saw Bill Bones, gave him a yell
    Kehoe spiked the nog
    With a chain link fence
    And a scrap iron jaw
    Cookin up a Filipino Box Spring hog
    Spider rolled in from
    Hollister Burn
    With a one-eyed stolen Mare
    Donned himself with chicken fat
    Sawin on a jaw bone violin there
    Kathleen was sittin down
    In little reds recovery room
    In her criminal underwear bra
    I was naked to the waist
    With my fierce black hound
    And I'm cookin up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin up a Filipino Box Spring Hog

    Dig a big pit in a dirt alley road
    Fill it with madrone and bay
    Stinks like hell
    And the neighbors complain
    Don't give a hoot what they say
    Slap that hog
    Gotta roll em over twice
    Baste him with a sweeping broom
    You gotta swat them flies
    And chain up the dogs
    Cookin up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin up a Filipino Box Spring Hog

    Rattle snake piccata with grapes and figs
    Old brown Betty with a yellow wig
    Tain't the mince meat filagree
    And it ain't the turkey neck stew
    And it ain't them bruleed
    Okra seeds though she
    Made them especially for you
    Worse won a prize for her
    Bottom black pie
    The beans got to thrown to the dogs
    Jaheseus Christ I can always
    Make room when they're
    Cookin up a Filipino box Spring Hog

    Don't go to church on Sunday
    Don't get on my knees to pray
    Don't memorize the books of the Bible
    I got my own special way
    But I know Jesus loves me
    maybe just a little bit more

    I fall on my knees every Sunday
    At Zerelda Lee's candy store

    Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
    Make me feel good inside
    Got to be a chocolate Jesus
    Keep me satisfied

    Well I don't want no Abba Zabba
    Don't want no Almond Joy
    There ain't nothing better
    suitable for this boy
    Well it's the only thing
    that can pick me up
    Better than a cup of gold
    See only a chocolate Jesus
    can satisfy my soul

    When the weather gets rough
    and it's whiskey in the shade
    it's best to wrap your savior
    up in cellophane
    He flows like the big muddy
    but that's ok
    Pour him over ice cream
    for a nice parfait

    Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
    good enough for me
    Got to be a chocolate Jesus
    good enough for me

    Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
    make me feel good inside
    Got to be a chocolate Jesus
    Keep me satisfied

  • Tom Waits - Just the right bullets

    3:37

    There is a light in the forest
    There is a face in the tree
    I'll pull you out of the chorus
    And the first one's always free

    You can never go hunting
    With just a flintlock and a hound
    You won't go home with a bunting
    If you blow a hundred rounds

    It takes much more than wild courage
    Or you'll hit just the tattered clouds
    You must have just the right bullets
    And the first one's always free

    You must be careful in the forest
    Broken glass and rusty nails
    If you're to bring back something for us
    I have bullets for sale

    Why be a fool when you can chase away
    Your blind and your gloom
    I have blessed each one of these bullets
    And they shine just like a spoon

    To have sixty silver wishes
    Is a small price to pay
    They'll be your private little fishes
    And they'll never swim away


    I just want you to be happy
    That's my only little wish
    I'll fix your wagon and your musket
    And the spoon will have his dish

    And I shudder at the thought of your
    Poor empty hunter's pouch
    So I'll keep the wind from your barrel
    And bless the roof of your house
