"Baby Gonna Leave Me" as written by and Kathleen Brennan Tom Waits....
Well I stood on the corner till my feet got wet
I stood by the faucet till the sink filled up
I stood by the window till the moon came up
My baby bought a ticket long as my clothes line
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na

My baby went and left me in a '49 Ford
Going down the highway in a '49 Sword
My baby ripped my heart out with every turn of the moon
Somebody told me there's never been a rose without a thorn
Na na na na na na na
Na na na

Well I'm just another sad guest from the dark earth
And if I was a tree I'd be a cut down tree
And if I was a bed I'd be an unmade bed
I'll get my 32/20 and it'll have to do
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na

Gone like the wind in the meadow and the rain on the hill
You even left your lipstick and your powder and your brush
Baby gonna leave me on a Grey Hound bus
The stars are melting all across the sky
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na

I let the dog out but he didn't come back
Stood on the corner till my feet got wet
Baby gonna leave me in a '49 Ford
I stood by the window util the moon came up
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na
