03-11-2010 – Tom Waits – God’s Away On Business

I’d sell your heart to the junkman baby
For a buck, for a buck
If you’re looking for someone
To pull you out of that ditch
You’re out of luck, you’re out of luck

The ship is sinking
The ship is sinking
The ship is sinking
There’s leak, there’s leak,
In the boiler room
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
Killers, thieves, and lawyers

God’s away, God’s away,
God’s away on Business. Business.
God’s away, God’s away,
God’s away on Business. Business.

Digging up the dead with
A shovel and a pick
It’s a job, it’s a job
Bloody moon rising with
A plague and a flood
Jain the mob, jain the mob
It’s all over, it’s all over, it’s all over
There’s a lick, there’s a lick,
In the boiler room
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
Killers, thieves, and lawyers
God’s away, God’s away, God’s away
On Business. Business.
God’s away, God’s away,
On Business. Business.

Goddamn ther’s always such
A big temptation
To be good, To be good
Tere’s always free cheddar in
A mousetrap, baby
It’s a deal, it’s a deal
God’s away, God’s away, God’s away
On Business. Business.
God’s away, God’s away, God’s away
On Business. Business.
I narrow my eyes like a coin slot baby,
Let her ring, let her ring
God’s away, God’s away,
God’s away on Business.
Business…


Shoot Me Down or Take Me Home – Nick Cave trifft Tom Waits


take me home – you silly girl – put your arms around me – take me home –  you silly girl – all the world’s not round without you – I’m so sorry that I broke your heart – please don’t leave my side – take me home – you silly girl- cause I’m still in love you

On those sentimental nights
you hold me in your sights
shoot me down
Though there ain’t no enemy here
you keep me very near and shoot me down
shoot me down
your hands they flutter up
Armed and dangerous my buttercup
and shoot me down… in flames
Stand back baby, stand back and let me breathe
I think I fallin‘ outta‘ here
I can hear the grass grow
I can hear the melting snow
I can feel your breath against my hair
I might just disappear
Yeah, wouldn’t that be nice?
Yeah, wouldn’t that be nice?
Well, wouldn’t that be nice?
I look into your eyes
it comes as no great surprise
you’re gonna shoot me down
shoot me down
I know that when you smile
it’ll only be a short little while
Shoot me down… in flames
Shoot me down
in flames
Shoot me down
in flames
you’re gonna shoot me down
oh, in flames
shoot me down, shoot me down
in flames
shoot me down in flames
shoot me down in flames
shoot me down in flames


06-09-2010 – Tom Waits – The Part You Throw Away‬

You dance real slow
You wreck it down
You walk away, then you
Turn around

What did that old blonde
Gal say?
That is the part…
You throw away

I want that beggars eyes
A winning horse
A tidy Mexican divorce

St. Mary’s prayers
Houdini’s Hands
And a Barman who always
Understands

Will you loose the flowers
Hold on to the vase
Will you wipe all those teardrops
Away from your fase
I can’t help thinking
As I close the door
I have done all of this
Many times before

The bone must go
The wish can stay
The kiss don’t know
What the lips will say

Forget I’ve hurt you
Put stones in your bed
And remember to never
Mind instead

Well all of your letters
Burned up in the fire
Time is just memory
Mixed in with Desire
That’s not the road it is
Only the map…I say
Gone just like matches
From a closed down cabaret
In a Portuguese Saloon
A fly is a circling around
The room
You’ll soon forget the
Tune that you play
For that is the part
You throw away
Ah, that is the part
You throw away
