Tom’s Diner DNA Mix

I am sitting

In the morning

At the diner

On the corner

 

I am waiting

At the counter

For the man

To pour the coffee

 

And he fills it

Only halfway

And before

I even argue

 

He is looking

Out the window

At somebody

Coming in

 

It is always

Nice to see you

Says the man

Behind the counter

 

To the woman

Who has come in

She is shaking

Her umbrella

 

And I look

The other way

As they are kissing

Their hellos

 

I'm pretending

Not to see them

Instead

I pour the milk

 

I open

Up the paper

There's a story

Of an actor

 

Who had died

While he was drinking

It was no one

I had heard of

 

And I'm turning

To the horoscope

And looking

For the funnies

 

When I'm feeling

Someone watching me

And so

I raise my head

 

There's a woman

On the outside

Looking inside

Does she see me?

 

No she does not

Really see me

Cause she sees

Her own reflection

 

And I'm trying

Not to notice

That she's hitching

Up her skirt

 

And while she's

Straightening her stockings

Her hair

Has gotten wet

 

Oh, this rain

It will continue

Through the morning

As I'm listening

 

To the bells

Of the cathedral

I am thinking

Of your voice...
