(SIDE ONE) P-10818Y1 TO ×-O 1-A-1 3 〄
(SIDE TWO) P-10818Y2 TO   1-A-1 3 〄

"Small Change"からストリングスを多用したロマンティックな3部作をリリースしたトム・ウェイツですが、ここで大きくイメージの異なる作品を発表しました。本作品がトム・ウェイツの全キャリアで最も普通のロックに近いアルバムじゃないかなと思います。

"Ruby's Arms"がリッキー・リー・ジョーンズとの別れを歌った曲で、"Jersey Girl"が後にトムの妻となるキャスリーン・ブレナンを歌った曲ですが、あれ?「付き合う相手が変わると作風が変わる」ってことですか??・・・・マンネリ化を恐れただけ、ってことにして欲しい。

"Saving All My Love For You"

It's too early for the circus, it's too late for the bars, everyone's sleepin'
But the paperboys, and no one in this town is makin' any noise, but the dogs
And the milkmen and me

The girls around here all look like cadillacs, no one likes a stranger here
I'd come home but I'm afraid that you won't take me back, but I'd trade off
Everything just to have you near

I know I'm irresponsible and I don't behave, and I ruin everything that I
Do, and I'll probably get arrested when I'm in my grave, but I'll be savin'
All my love for you

I paid fifteen dollars for a prostitute, with too much makeup and a broken
Shoe, but her eyes were just a counterfeit, she tried to gyp me out of it, but
You know that I'm still in love you

Don't listen to the rumors that you hear about me, cause I ain't as bad as
They make me out to be, well I may lose my mind but baby can't you see, that
I'll be savin' all my love for you

こんなに美しい曲なのに、例によって「ダメ男の勝手な言い草」・・・という感じの内容。でもトム・ウェイツで「一番好き」ぐらいに好きな曲です。
