Nighthawks at the diner of Emma's 49'er
There's a rendezvous of strangers around the coffee urn tonight
All the gypsy hacks and the insomniacs
Now the paper's been read, now the waitress said

"Eggs and sausage and a side of toast
Coffee and a roll, hash browns over easy
Chili in a bowl, with burgers and fries
What kind of pie?"

It's a graveyard charade, it's a late shift masquerade
And it's two for a quarter, dime for a dance
Woolworth rhinestones, diamond earrings and a sideways glance
Now the register rings, now the waitress sings

"Eggs and sausage and a side of toast
Coffee and a roll, hash browns over easy
Chili in a bowl, with burgers and fries
What kind of pie?"

Now well, the classified section offers no direction
It's a cold caffeine in a nicotine cloud
Now the touch of your fingers lingers burning in my memory
I've been 86'ed from your scheme
Now I'm in a melodramatic nocturnal scene
Now I'm a refugee from a disconcerted affair
Now the lead pipe morning falls, now the waitress calls

"Eggs and sausage, another side of toast
Coffee and a roll, hash browns over easy
Chili in a bowl with burgers and fries
Now what kind of pie? A la mode if you will"

Just come in and join the crowd
Had some time to kill
You see, I just come in to join the crowd
Had some time to kill
Just come in to join the crowd
Cause I had some time to kill
