Waits, Tom - God's Away On Business Lyrics




I'd sell your heart to the junkman baby
For a buck, for a buck
If you're looking for someone to pull you out of that ditch
You're out of luck, you're out of luck

The ship is sinking
The ship is sinking
The ship is sinking

There's a leak, there's a leak, in the boiler room
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
Killers, thieves, and lawyers

God's away, God's away,
God's away on Business. Business.
God's away, God's away,
God's away on Business. Business.

Digging up the dead with a shovel and a pick
It's a job, it's a job.
Bloody moon rising with a plague and a flood
Join the mob, join the mob

It's all over
It's all over
It's all over

There's a leak, there's a leak in the boiler room
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
Killers, thieves, and lawyers

God's away, God's away,
God's away on Business. Business.
God's away,
God's away on Business. Business.

[Instrumental Break]

God damn there's always such a big temptation
To be good, To be good
There's always free cheddar in a mousetrap, baby
It's a deal, it's a deal

God's away, God's away,
God's away on Business. Business.
God's away, God's away,
God's away on Business. Business.

I narrow my eyes like a coin slot baby,
Let her ring, let her ring.

God's away, God's away,
God's away on Business.
God's away, God's away,
God's away on Business. Business.
