Bad Liver and a Broken Heart - Tom Waits

    Well I got a bad liver and a broken heart
    yea I drunk me a river since you tore me apart
    and I don't have a drinking problem
    cept when I can't get a drink
    And I wish you'd a known her
    we were quite a pair
    she was sharp as a razor
    and soft as a prayer
    so welcome to the continuing saga
    she was my better half
    and I was just a dog
    and so here am I slumped
    I been chippied I been chumped
    on my stool
    so buy this fool, some spirits and libations
    it's these railroad station bars
    with all these conductors and the porters
    and I'm all out of quarters
    and this epitaph is the aftermath
    yea I choose my path
    hey come on Cath, he's a lawyer,
    he ain't the one for ya
    and no the moon ain't romantic
    it's intimidating as hell
    and some guy's trying to sell
    me a watch
    And so I'll meet you at the
    bottom of a bottle of
    bargain Scotch
    I got me a bottle and a dream
    it's so maudlin it seems

    you can name your poison
    go on ahead and make some noise
    I ain't sentimental
    this ain't a purchase it's a rental
    and it's purgatory, hey
    what's your story, well
    I don't even care
    cause I got my own double-cross to bear

    and I'll see your Red Label
    and I'll raise you one more
    and you can pour me a cab,
    I just can't drink no more
    cause it don't douse the flames
    that are started by dames
    It ain't like asbestos
    it don't do nothing but
    rest us assured
    and substantiate the rumors
    that you've heard.
