God's away on business

by Tom Waits


I´d sell your heart to the junkman baby
For a buck, for a buck
If you´re looking for someone
To pull you out of that ditch
You´re out of luck, you´re out of luck

The ship is sinking
The ship is sinking
The ship is sinking
There´s leak, there´s leak,
In the boiler room
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
Killers, thieves, and lawyers

God´s away, God´s away,
God´s away on Business. Business.
God´s away, God´s away,
God´s away on Business. Business.

Digging up the dead with
A shovel and a pick
It´s a job, it´s a job
Bloody moon rising with
A plague and a flood
Jain the mob, jain the mob
It´s all over, it´s all over, it´s all over
There´s a lick, there´s a lick,
In the boiler room
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
Killers, thieves, and lawyers
God´s away, God´s away, God´s away
On Business. Business.
God´s away, God´s away,
On Business. Business.

[Instrumental Break]

Goddamn ther´s always such
A big temptation
To be good, To be good
Tere´s always free cheddar in
A mousetrap, baby
It´s a deal, it´s a deal
God´s away, God´s away, God´s away
On Business. Business.
God´s away, God´s away, God´s away
On Business. Business.
I narrow my eyes like a coin slot baby,
Let her ring, let her ring
God´s away, God´s away,
God´s away on Business.
Business...
