Nighthawks at the Diner

(For Tom Waits)

Whoa baby!
Tommy the Cat is on the loose

dishin it out
cold blooded,
with a side of greasy fries-

va va vavoooom-
Ladies sit back relax make yourselves at home-
count the silverware-

take a load off, sit a spell
call in sick tomorrow mornin-

good citizens
lock your doors

Tommy the Cat,
is on the loose,
the prowl
and nobodies safe
late at night-

as the Night Hawks Gather at the Diner
