TOM WAITS lyrics - Vol. 1-Early Years

Goin' Down Slow

Original and similar lyrics
Well It's a quarter a two and looking at you and going down, going down slow Well It's a quarter a two and looking at you and going down, going down slow TV went off about one, we have only begun I know that the Wednesday may come but I have no intention of going home Well It's a quarter a three digging on me and going down, going down slow Could stay here all night, they claim your outta sight please get up and turn out the light There ain't nothing better than the middle of the night And It's a quarter a four begging for more and going down, going down slow going down, going down slow going down, going down slow going down, going down slow

You Got Me Going

Gilbert O'Sullivan "SouthPaw"
Now move a little closer baby Don't stand in the road There's such a lot of traffic about You'll catch your death of cold And as you can well imagine What with your death on my hands Nobody would believe me They just wouldn't understand Without you knowing You got me going Without your knowing You got me going... (You got me going) You got me going... (You got me going) All the way Now waiting for the bus to come Is getting to be a drag Time was when it used to get here Dead on quarter past Now its almost quarter to And still it hasn't shown By the time I get to your place I might just as well have flown Without you knowing You got me going Without your knowing You got me going... (You got me going) You got me going... (You got me going) All the way And I don't ever want you to think That I'm the sort Who has a woman waiting for me In every port I mean, as far as I know I've never been to sea Unless you count the time I went out In it up to my knees And I don't ever want you to think That for a start I would ever do anything To break your heart You see, the bond we have between us Is enough To ensure when we're together We are miles away in love Now I'm not superstitious But if ever I see a cat The first thing that I do Is check and see it isn't black And if on close inspection It turns out to be maroon I'll breathe a heavy sigh of relief And grab you on my broom Without you knowing You got me going Without your knowing You got me going... (You got me going) You got me going... (You got me going) All the way

A Night On The Town

BRUCE HORNSBY "A Night On The Town"
B. R. Hornsby/John Hornsby Van and Willie went out one night Once they get out on the road Well then everything is alright Had to get away from the kids and the wives Well they ran into some city boys that didn't walk just right And the line was drawn for another showdown Like they'd always seen it done And when the lights came up on the little woods town Ther was an old man bailing out a son Going out for a night on the town Going out to the smoke and trees Going out for a night on the town Going out for a look and see Said do what your daddy told you Well I just went out and did that Van and Willie went out one night There's a green table down at the midway Where they rack up the balls for the games And reputations are made There's a green forest full of oaks and pines Where they cleared a cleared a space in the middle Where secret scores are settled And the claim was made round the table that night And they rode off through the trees And the young boys tell how the city boys tried And how one man fell to his knees Going out for a night on the town Going out to the smoke and trees Going out for a night on the town Going out for a look and see Said what made you go and do that Well we were just having a little fun Van and Willie went out one night And the line was drawn for another showdown Like they'd always seen and done And one mans night for a drunken old time Left a scar on on another one Going out for a night on the town Going out to the smoke and trees Going out for a night on the town Going out for a look and see Said do what your daddy told you Well I just went out and did that Van and Willie went out one night

Nowhere Slow

Jesus Jones "London"
(Driving me insane) All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow I saw the apocalypse licking it抯 lips Sat in a van on the M25 You could just sit and stare, it was going nowhere Chances are it will never arrive In my car, well, I don抰 go far And it抯 driving me insane All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow Went to the park and ride But the city had parked then died There抯 nothing left there anyway Back to the motorway Fell asleep like yesterday Maybe I dreamed it, I couldn抰 say In my car, well, I don抰 go far And it抯 driving me insane I saw the apocalypse swinging it抯 hips All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow All the people going nowhere Going nowhere slow

Going Down Slow

ERIC CLAPTON "Pilgrim"
(by St. Louis Jimmy) I have had my fun if I never get well no more. I have had my fun if I never get well no more. All of my health is failing; Lord, I'm going down slow, I'm going down slow. Please write my mother and tell her the shape I'm in. Please write my mother and tell her the shape I'm in. Tell her to pray for me, Forgive me for my sin, For all of my sin. On the next train south, look for my clothes back home. On the next train south, look for my clothes back home. 'Cause all of my health is failing; Lord, I'm going down slow, I'm going down slow.
