Tom Waits

Thomas Alan "Tom" Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor. Waits has a distinctive voice, described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car." With this trademark growl, his incorporation of pre-rock music styles such as blues, jazz, and vaudeville, and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music, Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona. He has worked as a composer for movies and musical plays and has acted in supporting roles in films including Paradise Alley and Bram Stoker's Dracula; he also starred in the 1986 film Down by Law.

It's too early for the circus,
It's too late for the bars,
No one's sleepin' but the paperboys,
And no one in this town is makin' any noise,
But the dogs and the milkmen and me.

The girls around here all look like Cadillacs,
No one likes a stranger here,
I'd come home but I'm afraid
That you won't take me back,
But I'd trade off everything just to have you near.

I know I'm irresponsible and I don't behave,
And I ruin everything that I do,
And I'll probably get arrested when I'm in my grave,
But I'll be savin' all my love for you.

I paid fifteen dollars for a prostitute,
With too much makeup and a broken shoe,
But her eyes were just a counterfeit,
She tried to gyp me out of it,
But you know that I'm still in love you.

Don't listen to the rumors that you hear about me,
Cause I ain't as bad as they make me out to be,
Well I may lose my mind but baby can't you see,
That I'll be savin' all my love for you.
