Tom Waits – 'til The Money Runs Out lyrics

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.
