The Wages of Love Lyrics

Artist: Tom Waits
Album: One from the Heart

Down thru the ages
All the sages
said don't spend your wages on Love

Graft and collusion
_____ the intrusion
and proceeding foreclosures
there's overexposures

down at the crossroads
the question is posed
bridge is washed out
and the highway's closed

___ ___ ___ reason
firmly believe
love was designed
to exploit and deceive

There's a _____
Wherever you send 'em
Every ball ___ ___ in your chest
You will see
simple addition
keeps with tradition
Don't spend your wages on Love

Taking any burgh any city or town
Just get on main street and
drive all the way down

You see love has a graveyard
___ ___ __ ___
___ ___ ___ ___ ___
and paid thru the nose

your shovel's a shot glass
dig your own hole
bury what's left of your miserable soul

Down thru the ages
All the sages
said don't spend your wages on Love

Graft and collusion
_____ the intrusion
and proceeding foreclosures
there's overexposures

down at the crossroads
the question is posed
bridge is washed out
and the highway's closed
