lirik lagu mr. henry – tom waits


(previously unreleased)

mr. henry stumbles home
when the evening’s done
he’s as poor as a church mouse
high on the meyer’s rum
tugging at his shirttail
jiggling a church key
chewing on a toothpick
on another binge
trampling the rosebush
whistin’ to himself…
now don’t wake up the neighbours
spitting on the hinge
rattling the milkbottles
tripping on a skate
hidin’ from the newsboys
before it’s too late
the screen door’s open
don’t make no noise in the kitchen
got no excuse
for a cold, grey wife that starts b-tchin’
that the no good b-m’s at it again
after she’s given him
the best years of her life
he’ll tell her he was celebrating
savage’s divorce
played a hunch out at yonkers
you can never trust a horse
and thrown in jail
swore he’d never do these things again
he’s got an alibi
but never tells her where he’s been

“henry! henry!”
