West...

... via an afternoon's enjoyment of Fight Club... I just found some excellent Tom Waits.... I do so love it when I stumble upon new songs.....

.... and feel free to sing along... like always, it'll make it all better....the beat isn't his typical thump... but it is effective....

.... people, everyone should own at least one Tom Waits album... everyone... I highly recommend Small Change..

Goin' Out West

I'm goin' out west where the wind blows tall
Cause Tony Franciosa used to date my ma
They got some money out there, they're giving it away
I'm gonna do what I want and I'm gonna get paid
Do what I want and I'm gonna get paid

Little brown sausages lying in the sand
I ain't no extra, baby, I'm a leading man
Well, my parole officer will be proud of me
With my Olds '88 and the devil on a leash
My Olds '88 and the devil on a leash

I know karate, voodoo too
I'm gonna make myself available to you
I don't need no make up, I got real scars
I got hair on my chest, I look good without a shirt

Well, I don't lose my composure in a high speed chase
Well, my friends think I'm ugly, I got a masculine face
I got some dragstrip courage, I can really drive a bed
I'm gonna change my name to Hannibal or maybe just Rex
Change my name to Hannibal or maybe just Rex

I know karate, voodoo too
I'm gonna make myself available to you
I don't need no make up, I got real scars
I got hair on my chest, I look good without a shirt

I'm gonna drive all night, take some speed
I'm gonna wait for the sun to shine down on me
I cut a hole in my roof, the shape of a heart
And I'm goin' out west where they'll appreciate me
I'm goin' out west where they'll appreciate me
Goin' out west where they'll appreciate me
Goin' out west where they'll appreciate me

Goin' out west
Goin' out west
Goin' out west
Goin' out west
Goin' out west
Goin' out west
Goin' out west
Goin' out west

... quite a difference from his tune in Shrek II.... but still good stuff....

Bullshit So Far

Some of the lyrics really say something. Do you like Jack Johnson? 'Better Together' is a good one.
