'Til the Money Runs Out

by Tom Waits

Thomas Alan "Tom" Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor.

Too proud to duck their heads that's why they bring it down so low, so bye
Bye baby baby bye bye.

The pointed man is smack dab in the middle of July, swingin' from the
Rafters in his brand new tie, he said I can't go back to that hotel room all
They do is shout, but I'll stay wichew baby till the money runs out, so bye
Bye baby baby bye bye.
