Jane Siberry – The Waitress lyrics
I have to clear your table
I wipe it
It's right to keep it clean
So I clean
Yes --- I clean
Do you clean?
Yes --- I clean it

I have to empty ash trays
So I empty them
It's right to keep them clean
So I clean
Yes --- I clean
I'm the queen of the clean

... And I'd probably
Be famous now
If I wasn't
Such a good waitress...

I am a drag at parties
'cause it upsets me
To see so many empties
And I have to pick them up
Or I have to go home

... But sometimes I have nightmares
And the ashtrays are filling up
And I can't find my section
And the bottles are flying through the air
Like crazy autumn leaves
And I can't find my section
I lost my section
I lost my section
I can't find it
Somebody help me please
I am in quicksand
I am in mud to my knees
Help me... Aaagghhh...

I have to clear your table
Excuse me
It's right to keep it clean
So I clean
Yes --- I clean
Do you clean?
Yes --- I clean it

I have to know the regulars
Well --- I don't have to
But I like to know their names
And I know them even better
When they're nice to me

... And I'd probably
Be famous now
If I wasn't
Such a good waitress...
