Tom Waits: Heartattack and Vine

19 December 2018


Liar liar with your pants on fire
white spades hangin 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 Remarkable looks on in disbelief
if you want a taste of madness you 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 theres just god when he's drunk
well this stuff will probably kill you lets 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 pedal pushers suckin on a soda pop
well I bet shes still a virgin it's only twenty-five to nine
you can see a million of em on Heartattack and Vine

better off in Iowa against your scrambled eggs
than crawlin 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 thats 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 spade hangin on the telephone wire
gamblers reevaluate along the dotted line
you'll never recognize yourself on Heartattack and Vine

well I'll bet she's still a virgin but it's only twenty-five to nine
