Annie's back in Town - Lyrics

In the evening he stumbles home with his tie undone
And as the moon sweeps 7th Avenue as usual
You lie awake at night
You remember when
now that Annie's back in town

Well I know why you're drinking
I know your alibi
Don't make up excuses
for those are tears in your eyes
And you're falling back in love again
now that Annie's back in town

And it came down through the grapevine
It put your business on the street
I hear you've been hanging out 'til dawn
in some lunch room
Well you thought you've gotten over her
but that was 'til you found
that Annie's back in town

And all the corner boys are trouble-makers
and the sailors are all fools
You know it seems like some things round here
I guess they'll never change
Oh but it's always good for business
Guess we'll be seeing you around
now that Annie's back in town

Writer(s): Tom Waits
