Everything Goes to Hell (Waits Tom)

Why be sweet, why be careful, why he kind? A man has only one thing on his mind Why ask palitely, why go lightly, Why say please? They only want to get you on your knees There are a few things I never could believe A woman when she weeps A merchant when he swears A thief who says he'll pay A lawyer when he cares A snake when he is sleeping A drunkard when he prays I don't believe you go to heaven When you're good Everything goes to hell, anyway... Laissez-faire mi amour, ce la vie Shall I return to shore or swim Back out to sea? The world don't care what a soldier Does in town It's all hanging in the windows By the pound There are few things I never could believe... A woman when she weeps A merchant when he swears A thief who says he'll pay A lawyer when he cares A snake when he is sleeping A drunkard when he prays I don't believe you go to heaven When you're good Everything goes to hell, anyway... I only want to hear your purr and to hear Ou moan There is another man who brings The money home I don't want dishes in the sink Please don't tell me what you Feel of what you think There are few things I never could believe...
