Raised Right Men, par Tom Waits

extrait de Bad As Me

There ain’t enough raised right men / It takes a raised right man to keep a happy hen / I said there ain’t enough raised right men

Heavens to murkatroid / Miners to coal / A good women can make a diamond out of a measly lump of coal / You need the patience of a glacier / If you can wait that long / Open up his window and admit it that you’re wrong

They’re ain’t enough raised right men / It takes raised right men to keep a happy hen

Mackey Debiasi / Was a complicated man / He quarreled with his woman / And she quarreled with her man / His head was just too thick / So she knocked out a tooth / He’s that lonely man on the / Turnpike in the / Toll takers booth

They’re ain’t enough raised right men

Gunplay Maxwell and / Flat Nose George
Ice Pick Ed Newcomb / On a slab in the morgue / Flat Nose looked at Gunplay / And they all looked at me / With a good woman’s love we / Could have saved all three / And there ain’t enough raised right men / It takes raised right men to keep a happy hen / There ain’t enough raised right men
