Tom Waits – Everything Goes To Hell Lyrics 

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…

[Tom Waits - Everything Goes To Hell Lyrics]
