Return to the Diner

well i went to the new diner when i got back in town
thought i would try it while i was around
tried to go last night but i got there too late
looked at my watch, it said quarter past 8
looked at the sign that said nouvea cuisine
inside it hurt my eyes it was so clean ....

except for the watron i was in there alone
well they've taken out the grill
and they didn't fix the phone
i thought as long as i was there i may as well eat
so i ordered some coffee and found me a seat
well i hung up my coat and i lit up a smoke
and i looked at the menu and i started to choke, well

i hope some one buys the diner
cause there ain't no place to go any more
i hope some one buys up the diner again
cause until they do i don't think i can go in there no more

i felt in my pockets and counted my change
but i didn't have enough for the chicken with orange
looked for some spud sticks
theres none to be found
so i drank down my coffee and ordered another round
looked at the menu of noo-vo cuisine
it don't work in a diner it's kind of obscene
so i stared at the menu
stared at the floor
gulped down my coffee
and ran out the door, well

i hope some one buys the diner
cause there ain't no place to go any more
well i hope some one buys up the diner again
cause until they do i don't think i can go in there no more
