GREASY SPOON

Sometimes it comes down to the simple pleasures of life.

Written by Greg Connor

Lyrics:

Hop into my Lincoln Continental
Head on down to the greasy spoon
Table or booth is inconsequential
Long as I can find some room

Waitress coming with a pen and paper
She smells like food, not some perfume
Hot beef sandwich is on the special
Chocolate cake, so save some room

Greasy spoon, so darn good
Just down the road in the neighborhood
I’m not worried, have no fear
I won’t die of hunger, that’s quite clear

She takes my order, and leaves me waiting
Almost feels like eternity
I hear that bell, I see it coming
Hot and steamy as it can be

I take one bite and I start a grinning
Can’t believe it’s so tasty
Oh my Lord, I need my napkin
I’m as happy as can be

Here come refills on my coffee
Plates are cleared I’m on my way
Leave the tip and pay the damage
Thank you, have a lovely day

Out the door, I start planning
Planning for my swift return
Won’t be long, I’ll be coming
Tomorrow’s special, that’s my concern

I hadda go and play this after a long day with very light lunch, right as it’s getting to be dinner time. Working in Prague this week - now I gotta find me a Czech greasy spoon. It’ll be beer, not coffee.
