Former lead singer for The Rascals and former guitarist for Booker T. & the MGs:






John Hammond Jr. covers a Tom Waits song:

TILL THE MONEY RUNS OUT

Check this strange beverage that falls out from the sky,
Splashin' Bagdad on the Hudson in Panther Martin's eyes,
He's high and outside wearin' candy apple red,
Scarlet gave him twenty seven stitches in his head,
With a pint of green chartreuse ain't nothin' seems right,
You buy the Sunday paper on a Saturday night.
Can't you hear the thunder someone stole my watch,
I sold a quart of blood and bought a half a pint of scotch,
Some one tell those Chinamen on Telegraph Canyon Road,
When you're on the bill with the spoon there ain't no time
To unload, so bye bye baby baby bye bye.
Droopy stranger lonely dreamer toy puppy and the Prado,
We're laughin' as they piled into Olmos' El Dorado,
Jesus whispered eeny meany miney moe,
They're too proud to duck their heads
That's why they bring it down so low,
So bye bye baby baby bye bye.
The pointed man is smack dab in the middle of July,
Swingin' from the rafters in his brand new tie,
He said i can't go back to that hotel room
All they do is shout,
But I'll stay wichew baby till the money runs out,
So bye bye baby baby bye bye.

by Tom Waits

JERSEY GIRL

I got no time for the corner boys
Down in the street making all that noise
Don't want no whores on Eighth Avenue
'Cause tonight I wanna be with you

Tonight I'm gonna take that ride
Across the river to the Jersey side
Take my baby to the carnival
And I'll take her on all the rides

'Cause down the Shore everything's all right
You and your baby on a Saturday night
You know all my dreams come true
When I'm walking down the street with you

Sing sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey girl
Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la

You know she thrills me with all her charms
When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms
My little girl gives me everything
I know that some day she'll wear my ring

So don't bother me man, I ain't got no time
I'm on my way to see that girl of mine
'Cause nothing matters in this whole wide world
When you're in love with a Jersey girl

Sing sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey girl
Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la

When I call your name, I can sleep all night
Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey girl
Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
Sha la la la I'm in love, I'm in love with a Jersey girl
