Tabletop Joe Lyrics

Artist: Tom Waits
Album: Alice (The Original Demos)

Tabletop Joe, Tabletop Joe
everyone knows Tabletop Joe
well his mama didn't want him
on the day he was born
born without a body
he got nothing but scorn
but he always loved music
all he had was his hands
and he dreamed he'd be famous
and he'd work at the Sands
Tabletop Joe, Tabletop Joe
everyone knows Tabletop Joe
he had trouble with the pedals
but he had a strong left hand
and he could play Stravinsky
on a baby grand
Tabletop Joe, Tabletop Joe
everyone knows Tabletop Joe
he said "I'm gonna join the circus
cause that's I where I belong"
and he went to Coney Island
singing this song
and they gave him top billing
in the Dreamland show
he had his own orchestra
starring Tabletop Joe
and the man without a body
proved everyone wrong
he was rich and he was famous
and he was where he belonged
singing Tabletop Joe, Tabletop Joe
now everyone knows, Tabletop Joe
now everyone knows, Tabletop Joe
singing Tabletop Joe, Tabletop Joe...
