Black Market Baby


by Tom Waits. Buy album CD: Mule Variations


She lives in a house

That's way back off the road

There's a man with a lantern

And he carries her soul

A coal stove and a bed

A skillet and a hound

She drove a camel through

A needle

In this sinking board walk town


She's my Black Market Baby

She's my Black Market Baby

She's a diamond that

Wants to stay coal

Wants to stay coal


I swang out wide with her

On hells iron gate

Anything that you wanted

You could have

My eyes say their prayers to her

Sailors ring her bell

Like a moth mistakes a light bulb

For the moon and goes to hell


She's my Black Market Baby

She's my Black Market Baby

She's a diamond that

Wants to stay coal

Wants to stay coal


There's no prayer like desire

There's amnesia in her kiss

She's a swan and a pistol

And she will follow you like this

In Moverly, Missouri at the

Iroquois Hotel

She checked in with the President

And she ran up quite a Bill

(Chorus)

She's whiskey in a teacup

She gives blondes a lousy name

She's a Bonzai Aphrodite

And a ticket back to Spain

She's a hard way to go

And there ain't no way

To stop

Every time you play the red

The black is coming up


She's my Black Market baby

She's my Black Market baby

She's a diamond that

Wants to stay coal

Wants to stay coal
