Unless you are going to jump up and down in a wet t-shirt while you butcher Tom Waits songs, then please for the love of God... stop singing.
With all the love in my loins,
P.S. By the way, this is how to sing a song. I stumbled upon a random You Tube video from a cute chick named Margie Chadburn. It's just her, a raspy country voice, big city dreams, and an acoustic guitar covering one of your songs.
