​Waitress Song

This song is by Freakwater and appears on the album Old Paint (1995).

If I didn't come home every day smelling like fried eggs
If I didn't have those veins poppin' out all over my legs
If I had my hair done up real nice, if I had some clothes that weren't too tight
Would you still be comin' home drunk in the middle of the night?

I believe it's all a joke but I don't think it's funny
There's a man at table five and he's calling me honey
Some people are born too late, some people are born too soon
Some people are born to die chokin' on their silver spoon

Maybe money can't buy everything
It looks like I'm never gonna know for sure
Maybe money can't buy happiness
Well neither can just being poor

Maybe money can't buy everything It looks like
I'm never gonna know for sure
Maybe money can't buy happiness
Well neither can just being poor

Some people are born with luck, some people are born without it
Some people are born with faith, some are born to doubt it
If I didn't go to bed afraid about some bills that'll never get paid
I wouldn't be down at the laundromat watchin' my work clothes fade
I wouldn't be down at the laundromat watchin' my work clothes fade
