A Sight For Sore Eyes - Tom Waits

    Hey sight for sore eyes it's a long time no see
    workin hard hardly workin hey man you know me
    water under the bridge didya see my new car
    well it's bought and it's payed for parked outside of the bar

    and hey barkeeper what's keepin you keep pourin drinks
    for all these palookas hey you know what i thinks
    that we toast to the old days and dimagio too
    and old drysdale and mantle whitey ford and to you

    no the old gang ain't around everyone has left town
    'cept for thumm and giardina said they just might be down
    oh half drunk all the time and i'm all drunk the rest
    yea monk's till the champion but i'm the best

    I guess you heard about nash he was killed in a crash
    hell that must of been two or three years ago now
    yea he spun out and he rolled he hit a telephone pole
    and he died with the radio on
    no she's married and with a kid finally split up with sid
    he's up north for a nickle's worth for armed robbery

    hey i'll play you some pin ball hell you ain't got a chance
    well then go on over and ask her to dance
