Such A Scream
Tom Waits Lyrics

One, two, three, four
Pale-face said to the eyeball kid
She just goes clank and boom and steam
A halo, wings, horns, and a tail
Shoveling coal inside my dreams
There are no laws
She's made of cream
She's such a scream

Qui bon tres bien, nails in cement
A Donnie gal from mortal clay
The plow is red, the well is full
Inside the dollhouse of her skull
A cheetah coat fills up with steam
She's such a scream

All crooked lines
Her fireplace
A milktrain so clean
Machine-gun haste
You'll ride the only wall of shame
And drag that chain across the state
Her lips are red
She is the queen
She's such a scream, aah

I used to play this in my shop. I would offer to buy this album for any kid who could jeep up with the main drum in the first few minutes. It was fun to see the attempts.

I got a "Halo, Wings, Horns, & a Tail" tattoo inspired by this tune.

Том,как всегда супер!!!!


Probably the most Beefheart-ian Tom Waits ever got (along with "All Stripped Down") And that's saying something
