The Dry Cleaner From Des Moines (LP版) - Joni Mitchell (琼妮·米切尔)

Written by:Joni Mitchell/Charles Mingus

 

I'm down to a roll of dimes

I'm stalking the slot that's hot

I keep hearing bells all around me

 

Jingling in the lucky jackpots

They keep you tantalized

They keep you reaching for your wallet

Here in fools' paradise

I talked to a cat from des moines

 

He said he ran a cleaning plant

 

That cat was clanking with coin

Well he must have had a genie in a lamp

'Cause every time I dropped a dime I blew it

He kept ringing bells

Nothing to it

He got three oranges

Three lemons

Three cherries

Three plums

I'm losing my taste for fruit

Watching the dry cleaner do it

 

Like midas in a polyester suit

It's all luck

It's just luck

 

You get a little lucky and you make a little

Money

 

I followed him down the strip

 

He picked out a booth at circus circus

Where the cowgirls fill the room

With their big balloons

The cleaner was pitching with purpose

He had dinos and pooh bears

And lions pink and blue there

He couldn't lose there

 

It's all luck

It's just luck

 

Des moines was stacking the chips

Raking off the tables

Ringing the bandit's bells

This is a story that's a drag to tell

In some ways

Since I lost every dime

I laid on the line

But the cleaner from des moines

Could put a coin

In the door of a John

And get twenty for one

It's just luck

 

Lucky lucky so lucky

You lucky

 

That's catch what luck

 

That's catch what luck

 

That's catch what luck

 

That's catch what luck

 

Lili lucky

 

Lucky

 

Lucky

Lucky

 

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky

 

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky
