Tom Waits: New Coat Of Paint

30 December 2018


Let's put a new coat of paint
On this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, we'll be knocking 'em down
You wear a dress
Baby I'll wear a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon
In that Burgundy sky

All our scribbled love dreams
Are lost or thrown away
Here amidst the shuffle
Of an overflowing day
Love needs a transfusion
Let's shoot it full of wine
Fishing for a good time
Starts with throwing in your line

So let's put a new coat of paint
On this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, set 'em up, we'll be knocking 'em down
You wear a dress baby
I'll wear a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon
In that burgundy sky
