Drunk On The Moon Lyrics

Artist: Tom Waits

Tight-slacked clad girls on the graveyard shift
Neath the cement stroll
Catch the midnight drift
Forgot you and Charlie
In the newspaperness
Grifting hot-horse tips
On who's running the best


And I'm blinded by the neon
Don't try and change my tune
'Cause I thought I heard a saxophone
I'm drunk on the moon


And the moon's a silver slipper
It's pouring champagne stars
Broadway's like a serpent
Pulling shiny top-down cars
Laramer is teeming
With that undulating beat
And some Bonneville is screaming
It's way wilder down the street


(Chorus)


Hearts flutter and race
The moon's on the wane
Tarts mutter their dream hopes
The night will ordain
Come schemers and dancers
Cherry delight
As a Cleveland-bound Greyhound
And it cuts throught the night


And I've hawked all my yesterdays
Don't try and change my tune
Cause I thought I heard a saxophone
I'm drunk on the moon
