Closing Time is the debut album of Tom Waits, released in 1973 on Asylum Records.
Contrary to some belief, the song "Ice Cream Man" is a Waits original, not a cover of the John Brim blues standard of the same title. Waits' version, however, was covered in 1993 by Screamin' Jay Hawkins for his album Black Music For White People.
A cover version of "Ol' '55" was later a hit for The Eagles, who recorded it for their 1974 album On the Border.
The song "Midnight Lullaby" borrows its opening line from the English nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence".

"Ol' '55" – 3:58 "I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love With You" – 3:54 "Virginia Avenue" – 3:10 "Old Shoes (& Picture Postcards)" – 3:40 "Midnight Lullaby" – 3:26 "Martha" – 4:30 "Rosie" – 4:03 "Lonely" – 3:12 "Ice Cream Man" – 3:05 "Little Trip to Heaven (On the Wings of Your Love)" – 3:38 "Grapefruit Moon" – 4:50 "Closing Time" (instrumental) – 4:20
Length 45:46
