Better off without a wife

by Tom Waits


all my friends are married
every Tom and Dick and Harry
you must be strong
to go it alone
here´s to the bachelors
and the bowery bums
and those who feel that they´re the ones
who are better off without a wife

I like to sleep until the crack of noon
midnight howlin´ at the moon
goin´ out when I wanto, comin´ home when I please
I don´t have to ask permission
if I want to go out fishing
and I never have to ask for the keys

never been no Valentino
had a girl who lived in Reno
left me for a trumpet player
didn´t get me down
he was wanted for assault
though he said it weren´t his fault
well the coppers rode him right
out of town

I like to sleep until the crack of noon
midnight howlin´ at the moon
goin´ out when I wanto, comin´ home when I please
I don´t have to ask permission
if I want to go out fishing
and I never have to ask for the keys

selfish about my privacy
as long as I can be with me
we get along so well I can´t believe
I love to chew the fat with folks
and listen to all your dirty jokes
I´m so thankful for these friends
I do receive

I like to sleep until the crack of noon
midnight howlin´ at the moon
goin´ out when I wanto, comin´ home when I please
I don´t have to ask permission
if I want to go out fishing
and I never have to ask for the keys
