What's He Building In There? - Self Isolating Is Going Well

"What's he building in there? What the hell is he building in there? He has subscriptions to those magazines He never waves when he goes by And he's hiding something from the rest of us He's all to himself, I think I know why He took down the tire-swing from the pepper tree He has no children of his own, you see He has no dog, he has no friends And his lawn is dying And what about those packages he sends? What's he building in there?" ..........................Lyrics by Tom Waits


  1. Ah...great lyric! (Although I must admit I have never heard this song before...going to give it a listen now.) And certainly a great a collection of this and that and the other...if I was a peeping Tom and saw all this I might call the authorities!!

  2. Not one I'm familiar with either. I prefer his early folkie/ blues type stuff I must admit.

  3. Looks like Archie's shed...another masterpiece...x

  4. Good video and track from Tom.

    Like me, this bloke looks like he's on the horns of a dilemma.
    Chuck the junk out or do something with it!
