​Diner

This song is by Martin Sexton and appears on the album Black Sheep (1996) and on the television soundtrack Scrubs Original Soundtrack Vol. 2 (2006).

You might have seen one out in Minnesota
Or maybe down by the sea in Sarasota
But they were made back in Worcester Mass
Of aluminum and bakalite and glass

Like a locomotive they were streamlines
And the blue prints were drawn up from a dream of mine
Slap 'em up put 'em on the train
Out to Michigan up to Maine

You may find a diner down in Georgia or
Carolina off the twenty by the piggly wiggly
In the country out of Waynesboro

Or when it's getting late and rainy out in New York State
You hang a louie off the through-way
And you go and grab yourself a cheeseburger
At the little gem diner off the six niner

Diner my shiny, shiny love
In the night you're all I'm thinking of
Diner my shiny, shiny love

The cruiser pulls in where the troopers always stop
As we dine over the chrome and formica table top

The cashier she always squints
By the gum and the bowl of mints
She's tapping her toe
To the Dean Martin on the consolette
Booth service and a cigarette we're loving it so

Side of fries a dollar
Or the haddock plate two ninety five
A root beer float a pepsi
And be sure to save some room for some apple pie
Better make it à la mode

Dean Martin god rest his soul
Talkin' to me from the cereal bowl
There's a couple from the show me state
Knockin' back a little meatloaf plate

Diner my shiny, shiny love.
