Starving in the belly of a whale

by Tom Waits


Life is whittled
Life´s a riddle
Man´s a fiddle that life plays on

When the day breaks, and the earth quakes
Life´s a mistake all day long
Tell me, who gives a good gooddamn
You´ll never get out alive

Don´t go dreaming
Don´t go scheming
A man must test his mettle
In a crooked ol´ world

Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly of a whale
Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly of a whale

Dan´t take my word
Just look skyward
They that dance must pay the fiddler
Sky is darkening
Dogs are barking
But the caravan moves on

Tell me who gives a good gooddamn
You´ll never get get out alive
Don´t go dreaming
Don´t go scheming
A man must test his mettle
In crooked ol´ world
Starving in the Belly...

Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly of a whale
Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly of a whale

As the crow flies
It´s there the truth lies
At the bottom of the well
E-o-leven goes to heaven
Bless the dead here as the rain falls
Don´t trust a bull´s horn
A doberman´s tooth
A runaway horse or me

Don´t be greedy, don´t be needy
If you live in hope you´re
Dancing to a terrible tune
Starving in the Belly
Starving in the Belly...
