I Never Talk To Strangers - Tom Waits

    Stop me if you've heard this one
    i feel as though we've met before
    perhaps i'm mistaken
    but it's just that i remind you
    of someone you used to care about
    but that was long ago
    do you think i'd fall for that
    i wasn't born yesterday
    besides i never talk to strangers anyway

     i ain't a bad guy when you get to know me
    i just thought there ain't no harm
    hey just try minding your own business
    bud who asked you to annoy me
    with your sad repartee
    besides i never talk to strangers anyway

     your life's a dimestore novel
    this town is full of guys like you
    and you're looking for someone to take the place of her
    and you're bitter cause he left you
    that's why you're drinkin in this bar
    well only suckers fall in love
    with perfect strangers

     it always takes one to know one stranger
    maybe we're just wiser now
    and been around the block so many times
    that we don't notice
    that we're all just perfect strangers
    as long as we ignore
    that we all begin as strangers
    just before we find
    we really aren't strangers anymore
