Wait on Me (Waitress No. 3)

Wait on Me (Waitress No. 3)

When we met she was a waitress
Over at the Do Drop Inn
I dropped in and she bummed me out
By talking ’bout her boyfriends
She said here are your french fries
I said forget all those guys
She grinned and said
What guys are you talking about

We walked out on the patio
We were gazing at the stars
When truck full of drunk rednecks
Lost control and smashed my car
They took off in a full run
Which is what I should have done
Cause sometimes things
Don’t turn out the way we expect

Chorus:
All of my friends said She’s sweet on you
She gave me extra french fries
And lots of free beer too
Then she called me a cab
Me and my car were smashed
I said are you working tomorrow
If you are I’m coming back
Cause you’re the finest waitress
That I have ever seen
And I have loved a waitress
Won’t you please wait on me
Waitress number three

I woke up the next afternoon
With a waitress on my brain
The worst hangover on record
And a certain hunger pain
I thumbed back to the diner
To grab a bite and find her
I had visions
Of the meals she would cook for me

Chorus:
All of my friends said She’s sweet on you
She gave me extra french fries
And lots of free beer too
Then she called me a cab
Me and my car were smashed
I said are you working tomorrow
If you are I’m coming back
Cause you’re the finest waitress
That I have ever seen
And I have loved a waitress
Won’t you please wait on me
Waitress number three

The folks at the Do Drop Inn
I thought she’d be glad to see me
But she bummed me out again
She said of all my boyfriends
You are only one of them
Guess she wasn’t
Quite as sweet on me as it seemed

Chorus:
All of my friends said She’s sweet on you
She gave me extra french fries
And lots of free beer too
Then she called me a cab
Me and my car were smashed
I said are you working tomorrow
If you are I’m coming back
Cause you’re the finest waitress
That I have ever seen
And I have loved a waitress
Won’t you please wait on me
Waitress number three
