Do do do do do...

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

Do do do do do...

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
And I'm pretending not to see them
And instead I pour the milk

Do do do do do...

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
And looking for the funnies
When I'm feeling someone watching me
And so I raise my head

Do do do do do...

There's a woman on the outside
Looking inside, does she see me
No, she does not really see me
Cause she sees her own reflection

And I'm trying not to notice
That she's hitching up her skirt
And while she's
Straightening her stockings
Her hair has gotten wet

Do do do do do...

Oh, this rain, it will continue
Through the morning as I'm listening
To the bells of the cathedral

I am thinking of your voice

Do do do do do...
