Army

 

 

Jo the waiter spilling wine
Over some ex-friends of mine
In zero cafe number 9
What you gonna say this time

Basic J, say, are you new here

New ones walking down the stairs
Pretty young thing but no-one cares
Jo the waiter drops the tray
Do you always know your name

Jo the waiter smiled at me
Jo the waiter's company
I keep him in a book by my fireside
A drama is my perfect bride
