Last leaf

by Tom Waits


I´m the last leaf on the tree
The autumn took the rest
But they won´t take me
I´m the last leaf on the tree

When the autumn wind blows
They´re already gone
They flutter to the ground
Cause they can´t hang on
There´s nothing in the world
That I ain´t seen
I greet all the new ones that are coming in green

I´m the last leaf on the tree
The autumn took the rest but they wont take me
I´m the last leaf on the tree

They say I got staying power
Here on the tree
But I´ve been here since Eisenhower
And I´ve out lived even he

I´m the last leaf on the tree
The autumn took the rest but they won´t take me
I´m the last leaf on the tree

I fight off the snow
I fight off the hail
Nothing makes me go
I´m like some vestigial tail
I´ll be here through eternity
If you want to know how long
If they cut down this tree
I´ll show up in a song

I´m the last leaf on the tree
The autumn took the rest but they won´t take me
I´m the last leaf on the tree
I´m the last leaf on the tree
I´m the last leaf on the tree
