Black market baby

by Tom Waits


She lives in a house
That´s way back off the road
There´s a man with a lantern
And he carries her soul
A coal stove and a bed
A skillet and a hound
She drove a camel through
A needle
In this sinking board walk town

She´s my Black Market Baby
She´s my Black Market Baby
She´s a diamond that
Wants to stay coal
Wants to stay coal

I swang out wide with her
On hells iron gate
Anything that you wanted
You could have
My eyes say their prayers to her
Sailors ring her bell
Like a moth mistakes a light bulb
For the moon and goes to hell

She´s my Black Market Baby
She´s my Black Market Baby
She´s a diamond that
Wants to stay coal
Wants to stay coal

There´s no prayer like desire
There´s amnesia in her kiss
She´s a swan and a pistol
And she will follow you like this
In Moverly, Missouri at the
Iroquois Hotel
She checked in with the President
And she ran up quite a Bill

She´s my Black Market Baby
She´s my Black Market Baby
She´s a diamond that
Wants to stay coal
Wants to stay coal

She´s whiskey in a teacup
She gives blondes a lousy name
She´s a Bonzai Aphrodite
And a ticket back to Spain
She´s a hard way to go
And there ain´t no way
To stop
Every time you play the red
The black is coming up

She´s my Black Market baby
She´s my Black Market baby
She´s a diamond that
Wants to stay coal
Wants to stay coal
