"Another Man's Vine" as written by and Kathleen Brennan Tom Waits....
Bougainvillea's bloom and wind
Be careful mind the strangle vines
The rose is a climbing over the blind
'Cause the sun is on the other side

The bees will find their honey
The sweetest every time
Around a red rose
I see a red rose, a red rose
Blooming on another man's vine

Golden Willie's gone to war
He left his young wife on the shore
Will she be steadfast everyday?
While Golden Willie is far away
Along the way her letters end
She never reads what Willie sends

Now I see a red rose
I smell a red rose, a red rose
Blooming on another man's vine
