Sittin' in an all-night cafe in a booth back in the corner
Makin' wads from paper napkins, throwin' toothpicks on the floor
Bet my baby's out with someone laughin' dancin' and romancin'
And I bet she never thinks about me sittin' here alone.

It can't be another woman cause I've never looked at anyone
As long as I been knowin' her and that's a long, long time
Drank a hundred cups of coffee and I guess I'll have another
Guess I'll get myself an ulcer 'fore I get her of my mind.

--- Instrumental ---

Sittin in an all night cafe in a booth back in the corner
Overheard the waitress sayin' Wonder why he don't go home
I'll have another cup of coffee then I'll sit here till I figure out
The reason why my baby doesn't love me any more.

It can't be another woman cause I've never looked at anyone
As long as I been knowin' her and that's a long, long time
Drank a hundred cups of coffee and I guess I'll have another
Guess I'll get myself an ulcer 'fore I get her of my mind.

    Sittin' in an all-night cafe brings back very good but at the same time sad memories for me. It was one of the "country and western," songs my mama used to listen to a lot. She died several years ago but she is on my mind every single day...she was my best friend and always had my back like no one else on this earth will ever have. The song goes back to, "...just ridin' around...," (of course you could back then with gas well under a dollar), the radio blaring and my mama singing, and of course I tried to sing along...this song like a few others brings my mama's existence back so close in my heart when I hear them that I can almost hear her!
