tom waits

on a nearby street across al attar
as i hurry myself inside the house
of sound. i took his mule variations
and a couple of sountracks
an alice coltrane best of package
the tribute album to yoko ono
and put it all in my jacket
10 dirhams is a hundred peso
and that’s cheap but not cheap
to someone who got nothing but a rupee

he warned me when i finally got outside
that if i got caught i’m gonna get
some good lashings on the feet every
friday, and i’ve heard that too
from a kabayan but the thief in me
just won’t rest and i guess it had
killed all the fear in my heart, all
it says is put ’em to the test, yes
put ’em to the test and in shallah
as you say you record thief junkie
