Everything goes to hell

by Tom Waits


Why be sweet, why be careful, why he kind?
A man has only one thing on his mind
Why ask palitely, why go lightly,
Why say please?
They only want to get you on your knees
There are a few things I never could believe
A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who says he´ll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays
I don´t believe you go to heaven
When you´re good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...

Laissez-faire mi amour, ce la vie
Shall I return to shore or swim
Back out to sea?
The world don´t care what a soldier
Does in town
It´s all hanging in the windows
By the pound
There are few things
I never could believe...

A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who says he´ll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays
I don´t believe you go to heaven
When you´re good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...

I only want to hear your purr and to hear
Ou moan There is another man who brings
The money home
I don´t want dishes in the sink
Please don´t tell me what you
Feel of what you think
There are few things I never could believe...
