      Tom Waits - Circus Música y Letra

      We put up our tent on a dark
      Green knoll, outside of town by
      The train tracks and a seagull dump
      Topping the bill was Horse Face Ethel
      And her 'Marvellous Pigs In Satin'
      
      We pounded our stakes in the ground
      All powder brown
      And the branches spread like scary
      Fingers reaching
      We were in a pasture outside Kankakee
      
      And One Eyed Myra, the queen of
      The galley who trained the
      Ostrich and the camels
      She looked at me squinty with her
      One good eye in a Roy Orbison
      T-shirt as she bottle fed
      An orangutan named Tripod
      
      And then there was
      Yodeling Elaine the
      Queen of the air who wore a
      Dollar sign medallion and she
      Had a tiny bubble of spittle
      Around her nostril and a
      Little rusty tear, for she had
      Lassoed and lost another
      Tipsy sailor
      
      And over in
      The burnt yellow tent
      By the frozen tractor, the
      Music was like electric sugar
      And Zuzu Bolin played
      'Stavin' Chain' and Mighty
      Tiny on the saw and he
      Threw his head back with a
      Mouth full of gold teeth
      And they played 'Lopsided heart'
      And 'Moon over Dog Street'
      
      And by the time they played "Moanin Low"
      I was soakin' wet and wild eyed
      And Doctor Bliss slipped me a
      Preparation and I fell asleep with
      'Livery Stable Blues' in my ear
      
      And me and Molley Hoey drank
      Pruno and Koolaid and she had a
      Tattoo gun made out of a cassette
      Motor and a guitar string and
      She soaked a hanky in 3 Roses
      And rubbed it on the spot
      And drew a rickety heart and
      A bent arrow and it hurt like hell
      
      And Funeral Wells spun
      Poodle Murphy on the target
      As he threw his hardware,
      Only once in Sheboygan did he miss
      At a matinee on Diamond Pier and
      She'd never let him forget it
      
      They were doing two shows and she
      Had a high fever and he took
      Off a piece of her ear and
      Tip Little told her she should
      Leave the bum
      But Poodle said, "He fetched me
      Last time I run."
      But I'd like to hammer this ring into a bullet
      And I wish I had some whiskey and a gun
      My dear
      
      And I wish I had some whiskey and a gun
      My dear
