"Get Lost" as written by and Kathleen Brennan Tom Waits....
I don’t want to feel all cooped up
I feel like I’m on a chain
I got my ride all souped up
We’re never coming back again
Time it don’t mean nothing
Money means even less
Don’t bring nothin baby
You’re better then all the rest
I wanna go get lost
I wanna go get lost
I wanna go get lost

When you wear that real tight sweater
You know I can’t resist
It’s been that way forever baby
Ever since we kissed
Roll down all the windows
Turn up Wolfman Jack
Please, please love me tender
Ain’t nothin wrong with that
Let’s go get lost
I wanna go get lost
I wanna go get lost
I wanna go get lost

Whatever that they told you about me
Well all of it’s true
You’re never gonna be without me baby
I’m never gonna be without you
Top it off, fill it with high test
Think about it whatcha gonna tell your boss?
Think about it whatcha gonna tell your boss?
Think about it whatcha gonna tell your boss?
Think about it whatcha gonna tell your boss?
Get lost
I just wanna get lost
I wanna get lost
I just wanna get
I just wanna get
I wanna get
I just wanna get lost
All night long
All night long
All night long

    General CommentThis is Tom Waits doing a great impression of Elvis singing..'Baby Let's play House'.
    I can imagine a video for this song that has Tom Waits dressed up like Johhny Burnett, complete with quiff and Brothel Creepers with his band all done up in late 50's attire playing Gretch guitars, double bass and a three piece drum kit.

    Playing somewhere with a name like the Rivoli Ballroom with couples jiving together on the dance floor...all filmed in glorious 1950's technicolor.
