sábado: gosto de chegar no rápido da noite, assobiar ao passar pelo cemitério, viajar clandestino e sem destino, ir dormir ao pé do caminho-de-ferro, e arrancar do céu um arco-íris e usá-lo como gravata. 
e se nunca disse a verdade como posso estar a mentir?




I come in on a night train with an arm full of boxcars
on the wings of a magpie cross a hooligan night
and I busted up a chifferobe way out by the kokomo
cooked up a mess of mulligan and got into a fight

whistlin' past the graveyard steppin' on a crack
me and mother hubbard papa one-eyed Jack

you probably seen me sleepin out by the railroad tracks
go on and ask the prince of darkness
what about all that smoke come from the stack
sometimes I kill myself a jackal suck out all the blood
steal myself a station wagon drivin' through the mud

I'm gonna be whistlin' past the graveyard steppin' on a crack
me and mother hubbard papa one-eyed Jack

I know you seen my headlights and the honkin of my horn
I'm callin out my bloodhounds chase the devil through the corn
last night I chugged the Mississippi now that suckers dry as a bone
I was born in a taxi cab I'm never goin home

Whistlin' past the graveyard steppin' on a crack
me and mother hubbard Papa one-eyed Jack

my eyes have seen the glory of the draining of the ditch
I only come to Baton Rouge I gotta find myself a witch
I'm gonna snatch me up a couple of em every time it rains
you'll see a locomotive probably thinkin its a train

whistlin' past the graveyard steppin' on a crack
me and mother hubbard Papa one-eyed Jack

what you think is the sunshine is just a twinkle in my eye
that ring around my fingers called the fourth of July
when I get a little bit lonesome and a tear falls from my cheek
there's gonna be an ocean in the middle of the week

whistlin' past the graveyard steppin' on a crack
me and mother hubbard Papa one-eyed Jack

I come into town on a night train with an arm full of boxcars
on the wings of a magpie cross a hooligan night
I'm gonna tear me off a rainbow and wear it for a tie
I never told the truth so I can never tell a lie

whistlin' past the graveyard steppin' on a crack
me and mother hubbard Papa one-eyed Jack
