about

This is a Knoxville song.

lyrics

The waitresses at the Bistro
used to have the best tattoos
They'd share 'em with you
and bring you stuffed mushrooms
I used to date your cousin once
way back in the day
She got to know me pretty well
but we're still friends today

The staff at the Tomato Head
are a sexy bunch of folks
Mahasti puts lovin' in the food
gives 'em all a healthy glow
Local legends great and small
worked there in their time
Scott's in the kitchn makin' me a pizza
Mayor's gotta wait in line

Up gay street on a Saturday mornin'
Harold cooked up a nosh
For all kinds of Jews and a Catholic or two
Volunteers all in orange
Endless cup of coffee and a toasted bagel
there's ol' Estes Kefauver
Scrambled eggs & lox hot on the grill
and everything's kosher

Chorus:
Won't you bring me another unsweet iced tea?
I'm gonna sit here a while
I've got a good book to read
Won't you bring me another unsweet iced tea?
I'm starting to like you smile
and it might be all I need

The waitresses at the Bistro
used to have the best tattoos
They'd share 'em with you
and bring you stuffed mushrooms
You oughtta see them haulin' ass
When there's a Bijou show
The Man on the Stairs gets outta the way
When they hit the rock and roll

I used to date your cousin once
way back in the day
She got to know me pretty well
but we're still friends ... anyway
