Tom Waits: Little Boy Blue

29 December 2018


Little boy blue
come blow your horn
the dish ran away
with the spoon
home again Saturday morn
he never gets up before noon

well she used to render you
legal and tender
when you used to send her
your promises boy
a diller
a dollar
unbutton your collar
and come out and holler
out all of your noise

so little boy blue
come blow your top
and cut it
right down to the quick
don't sit home and cry
on the fourth of July
around now you're
hitting the bricks

so abracadabra
now she disappeared
everything is canada dry
So watch your behavior
and rattle your cage
With a bottle of bourbon
goodbye

so little boy blue
lost little bo peep
she fell through
a hole in the nest
Now ain't it peculiar
that she is finally cooled

your big wheel is
just like all of the rest

whenever it rains
the umbrellas complain
they always get
played for a chump

so mark it and strike it
she's history now
And you're hanging out
at the pump

little boy blue
come blow your horn
the dish ran away
with the spoon
home again Saturday morn
he never gets up before noon

well she used to render you
legal and tender
when you used to send her
your promises boy
a diller
a dollar
unbutton your collar
and come out and holler
out all of your noise
