Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe

by Bobby Bare

Lyrics

It's two in the mornin' (morning) on Saturday night
At Rosalie's Good Eats Café.
The onions are fryin' (frying), the neon is bright
And the jukebox is startin' (starting) to play
And the sign on the wall says, IN GOD WE TRUST,
ALL OTHERS HAVE TO PAY.
And it's two in the mornin' (morning) on Saturday night
At Rosalie's Good Eats Café.

The short-order cook with the MOMMA tattoo
He's a'turnin' them (he's turning those) hamburgers slow.
"Eggs over easy, whole wheat down,
D' y'all want (Would you like) that coffee to go?"
He never once dreamed as a rodeo star
That he'd wind up here today.
At two in the mornin' (morning) on Saturday night
At Rosalie's Good Eats Café.

There's a guy in a tux and he stands in the corner
Feedin' (Feeding) the jukebox his dimes.
He just had a woman and thought that he'd bought her
But found he'd just rented some time.
And he couldn't sleep, so he come (came) back to see
If anyone else wants to play.
At two in the mornin' (morning) on Saturday night
At Rosalie's Good Eats Café.

There's an old dollar bill in a frame on the wall
The first one that Rose ever made.
It was once worth a dollar a long time ago
But, like Rose, it's beginnin' (beginning) to fade.
She's back of the (She's behind the) register, dreamin' (dreaming) of someone
And how things'd be (how things would have been) if he'd stayed.
But it's two in the mornin' (morning) on Saturday night
At Rosalie's Good Eats Café.

The shaggy-haired hippie, he's finished his meal
And he's countin' (counting) the change in his jeans.
Burger and coffee are 85 cents
And he's only got 23.
He smiles at Rose and she winks back at him
But, Lord, that's a high price to pay.
At two in the mornin' (morning) on Saturday night
At Rosalie's Good Eats Café.

The baby-faced sailor, he leans on the phone
And dials the number again.
While the guy in the tux tells the girl in the jeans
'Bout (About) the wonderful places he's been.
Then the wino comes in off the street and starts shoutin' (shouting),
'Bout (About) fortunes that he threw away.
And Rosalie's askin' (asking) the shaggy-haired hippie
If he's got a warm place to stay.
And the short-order cook takes a five from the till
While Rosalie's lookin' (looking) away.
And the onions keep fryin' (frying), the neon is bright
And the jukebox continues to play.
And it's two in the mornin' (morning) on Saturday night
At Rosalie's Good Eats Café.
