lyrics

[Rita]

What’ll it be honey?
Paying with cash money?
Fry cook is on vacation
So we only have the grill station
Coffee is fresh all day
Is this for here or take away?
Is this for here or take away?

Do you want cheese on that?
Ok if the coke’s a little flat?
Bottled or tap water?
How’s your oldest daughter?
Be back on Monday, I believe
Make sure you say goodbye before you leave
Make sure you say goodbye before you leave

If I don’t write it, I’ll forget
Honey, I’m not the type to bet
The special today’s homemade pot roast
Rye, white, or wheat for your toast?
You’ve shaved your beard, well, look at that
Your little Charlie’s getting fat
Your little Charlie’s getting fat

[Rita + harmony]

Honey, I’ve been here since 5 a.m.
You can’t count the number of varicose veins
Spidery webs creeping up my thighs
Even my shoes have started to apologize

I’ll bring the check right around
Your wallet’s in the lost and found
These walls have seen a thing or two
Babies grow up and work here too
Since when did you take your coffee black?

[Rita + Townsfolk Choir]

Honey be sure to come on back (come on back)
Honey be sure to come on back (come on back)
Honey be sure to come on back (come on back)
Honey be sure to come on back (come on back)
