Buzz Fledderjohn

This song is by Tom Waits and appears on the compilation box set Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards (2007).

(Tom Waits)

I stood on the roof
Of Stuart's old Dodge
To get a better look
At the Fledderjohns' Lodge
Bait shop, pistols, and ammo too
Nothing but books about W.W.II

Rottweiler, Doberman Pinkerton guard
I ain't allowed in Buzz Fledderjohn's yard

I ain't allowed
No, I ain't allowed
I ain't allowed
In Buzz Fledderjohn's yard

I seen a python swallow a Doberman whole
Piranha swimmin in a mixing bowl
Paper's full of stabbings
The sky's full of crows
She's singin' in Italian
While she's hanging out her clothes
Carp in the bathtub
And its raining real hard
I ain't allowed in Buzz Fledderjohn's yard

I ain't allowed
No, I ain't allowed
I ain't allowed
In Buzz Fledderjohn's yard.

Well a sailor's ringing doorbells
Sinners in the pew
The weather vane squeaking to the west
I seen the Cliffs of Dover
And the deepest oceans blue
The one thing in the world
I can recommend to you

'Cause I ain't allowed
No, I ain't allowed
No, I ain't allowed
In Buzz Fledderjohn's yard
