The Bartender Is Like a Mother to Me

This song is by Slim Gaillard and appears on the compilation album 1947-1951 (2002) and on the compilation Atomic Cocktails (2003).

Oh the Bartender is just like a mother
With his apron so clean and white
For he tries to make everyone happy
And he never looks for a fight
Whenever I'm sad and lonesome
He always gets me to smile
Oh the Bartender is just like a mother to me
And I am his favorite child

Oh the Bartender is just like a mother
And I know he's man's best friend
'Cause he passes the pretzels and peanuts
To the guy all alone on the end
Whenever my wife comes huntin'
He says "no, he hasn't been in"
Oh the Bartender is just like a mother to me
And I am his favorite kin

Oh the Bartender is just like a mother to me
For he knows when I've had enough
He refuses to give me another
When I ask for more of the stuff
He won't let me be forsaken
No matter how big my tab
Oh the Bartender is just like a mother to me
'Cause the bar is owned by my Dad

Bartender, I surrender, bartender, some sender
Bartender is just like a mother to me
