Tom Waits: Union Square

05 January 2019


Well time is always money
For the boys at Union Square
You can bust your ass till doomsday
But don't forget to say your prayers
Someone's got a wad on the backstreet
Sacc got a bran' new slack
And your baby is handcuffed on the front seat
Sit right there, boy and you relax

I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down

Well they spill out of the Cinema 14
To that drag bar down the block
Best live show by far on the whole east coast
With a bank rolled up in your sock
She stand right there for your pleasure
Half Puerto Rican Chinese
You got to find your baby somebody to measure
I'm goin' to get me some of these baby

I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down

Four in the mornin on a Sunday
Sacco drinkin' whiskey in church
Half pint festival brandy
That boy 'bout to fall right off his perch
The guy in the sweaters off duty
Out in front on the welfare hotel
The guy in the dress is a beauty
Go all the wayand I swear you never can tell

I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down
I'm goin' down down down
