Lyrics
Just a Waitress rev 1
David Damroze


Verse
 

I stopped into my usual place

for a bloody mary and some eggs


where the sign outside says ' food' in 
red neon

Rosie was waiting on the tables there

with a couple of pencils in her hair


and a smile like the breaking of the dawn.

Em 
Some character in a business suit

Started to complain about the fruit
Am 

while waving his country sausage all around
Em 
Rosie listened to his bitchin'

about the waitstaff and the kitchen
Am 

Put her hands on her hips and cussed him out


Chorus
 

She said "You 
say I'm just a waitress
 
Em 
but you wouldn't last an hour in my 
shoes.
 

I do more work in a day than 25
 
Em 
of the likes of you.

Am 
I keep all of my orders straight
Bm 

While balancing a 
dozen plates
 

You say I'm just a waitress
 
Em 
But you wouldn't last an hour in my 
shoes.



Verse

Business suit got kind of cross
Demanded a word with the boss
You should have seen the look on his face
When Rosie said " Look here you fool,
you can kiss me on my rose tatoo,
'cause I am the owner of this place"

He sputtered stammered and he swore
As He scrambled out and slammed the door
He wasn't used to getting this kind of lip
As Rosie finished cleaning up
Following the morning rush
on every table was a twenty dollar tip.


Chorus
She said
"You say I'm just a waitress
but you wouldn't last an hour in my shoes.
I do more work in a day than 25
of the likes of you.
I keep all of my orders straight
While balancing a dozen plates
You say I'm just a waitress
But you wouldn't last an hour in my shoes.

Thanks Ed.
This was an attempt to write a radio friendly country lyric but, I have an Outlaw / Alt. country ear in a Taylor Swift / Sugarland world.
That may be more a matter of sound than song though. There's some good song writing in pop country, I just can't stand the overproduced Nashville sound. Thank you Chet Atkins.

The pro evaluations
from NSAI were very educational.
Those lyrics are much stronger when I work with better composers and singers ( nudge-nudge)
