The tambourine is on the fritz
in my diner band.
I don't sing the songs,
but I put them down by hand.

I used to wait the tables.
Now I play for fans.
There's more trouble in art
than in seating plans.

I just made it up:
the love, the treasure, and the pain.
I scribbled in my corner
as the girls went by with plates.

The most beautiful mortician
to brighten up my day.
There's no trouble with beauty
as long as the bill gets paid.
