Tom Waits – Heartattack And Vine lyrics

Liar, liar with your pants on fire
White spades hangin' on the telephone wire
Gamblers re-evaluate along the dotted line
You'll never recognize yourself on Heartattack and Vine
Doctor lawyer beggar man thief
Philly Joe remarkable looks on in disbelief
If you want a taste of madness 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
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
Liar, liar with your pants on fire
White spades hangin' on the telephone wire
Gamblers re-evaluate along the dotted line
You'll never recognize yourself on Heartattack and Vine
Doctor lawyer beggar man thief
Philly Joe remarkable looks on in disbelief
If you want a taste of madness you'll have to wait in line
You'll probably see someone you know from 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
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
