Giorgio Moroder – Tom's Diner lyrics

[Refrain: Britney Spears] (x3)
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du

[Verse 1: Britney Spears]
I am sitting in the morning
At the diner on the corner
I am waiting at the counter
For the man to pour the coffee
And he fills it only halfway
And before I even argue
He is looking out the window
At somebody coming in

[Refrain] (x4)

[Verse 2: Britney Spears]
"It is always nice to see you,"
Says the man behind the counter
To the woman who has come in
She is shaking her umbrella
And I look the other way
As they are kissing their hellos
I'm pretending not to see them
Instead, I pour the milk

[Refrain] (x4)

[Bridge: Giorgio Moroder]
Everybody's welcome
Come on, come on in
Sit yourself down
The funnies never end
Love is the drug
That makes you want to drink
Till the morning after, oh

[Verse 3: Britney Spears]
I open up the paper
There's a story of an actor
Who had died while he was drinking
It was no one I had heard of
And I'm turning to the horoscope
Looking for the funnies
When I'm feeling someone watching me
And so I raise my head

[Refrain] (x7)
