New Coat of Paint Lyrics

Let's put a New Coat of Paint
On this lonesome old town

Set 'em up, set 'em up
we'll be knockin' 'em down

You wear a dress babe, I'll wear a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon
In that burgundy sky

All our scribbled love dreams
Lost or thrown away
Never miss the shuffle on an overflowin' day

When love needs a transfusion
Shoot it full of wine
Fishin' for a good time
Starts with throwin' in your line

Let's put a New Coat of Paint
On this lonesome old town

Set 'em up, set 'em up
we'll be knockin' 'em down

You wear a dress babe, I'll wear a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon
In that burgundy sky

(Tom Waits)
