Warm beer and cold women

by Tom Waits


Warm beer and cold women, I just don´t fit in
every joint I stumbled into tonight
that´s just how it´s been
all these double knit strangers with
gin and vermouth and recycled stories
in the naugahyde booths

with the platinum blondes
and tobacco brunettes
I´ll be drinkin´ to forget you
lite another cigarette
and the band´s playin´ something
by Tammy Wynette
and the drinks are on me tonight

all my conversations I´ll just be
talkin´ about you baby
borin´ some sailor as I try to get through
I just want him to listen
that´s all you have to do
he said I´m better off without you
till I showed him my tattoo

now the moon´s rising
ain´t got no time to lose
time to get down to drinking
tell the band to play the blues
drink´s are on me, I´ll buy another round
at the last ditch attempt saloon

warm beer and cold women, I just don´t fit in
every joint I stumbled into tonight
that´s just how it´s been
all these double knit strangers with
gin and vermouth and recycled stories
in the naugahyde booths

with the platinum blondes
and tobacco brunettes
I´ll be drinking to forget you
lite another cigarette
and the band´s playing somethin´
by Johnnie Barnett
and the drinks are on me tonight
