Tom Waits - Singapore lyrics with translation (on click)

Singapore - Tom Waits

words to study

We sail tonight for Singapore

We're all as mad as hatters here

I've fallen for tawny moor

Took off to the land of Nod

Drank with all the Chinamen

Walked the sewers of Paris

I danced along a colored wind

Dangled from a rope of sand

You must say goodbye to me

We sail tonight for Singapore

Don't fall asleep while you're ashore

Cross your heart and hope to die

When you hear the children cry.

Let marrow bone and cleaver choose
