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
Scarlet 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
Some one tell those chinamen on telegraph canyon road
When you're 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
We're laughin' as they piled into olmos' el dorado
Jesus whispered eni 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 wichew baby till the money runs out
So bye bye baby baby bye bye

Tom Waits
