TOM WAITS


Everything Goes To Hell Lyrics

Why be sweet, why be careful, why he kind?
A man has only one thing on his mind
Why ask politely, why go lightly,
Why say please?
They only want to get you on your knees
There's a few things that I never could believe
A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who'll says he'll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays
I don't believe you go to heaven
When you're good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...

Laissez-faire mon (mi) amour, c'est la vie
Shall I return to shore or swim
Back out to sea?
The world don't care what a sailor
Does in the town
It's all hanging in the windows
By the pound
I don't believe you go to heaven
When you're good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...

I only wanna hear your purr and hear you moan
You have another man who brings the money home
I don't want dishes in the sink
Don't ask me what I feel or what I think
Theres a few things that I never could believe...
A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who'll says he'll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays
I don't believe you go to heaven
When you're good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...

Everything goes to hell, anyway...
