God's Away On Business Tom Waits

It's like it's 2008 on the You Tubes this week, with very only four songs in the first ten found. One of the surprises is finding a Prince tune that hasn't been scrubbed away by his music company. Some of the songs are obscure, but I thought the Chris Isaak tune would be there, or maybe the Dave Edmunds.

I went to an eleventh track hoping we'd get something that would have a video on YouTube, and not only that, we got a great song by Tom Waits. How can you not love the lyric

Who are the ones that we left in charge?
Killers, thieves and lawyers.
God's away... God's away... God's away on business. Business!

As Padre Mickey asks... so wadda you listening to?
