Two men sit in the corner of a diner
One of them is smoking even though the sign says not to
They tell each other jokes that they both know that they both know
And when they finish up they leave a twenty on the table
And when her shift is over she goes back to Mineola

I'm so ready for a change of pace

And the next thing you know

But within a few weeks she discovers she can manage
So she breaks up with the man that she just started seeing
Thinks to himself I'm so feeble with the ladies and I
I'm so, I'm so sick of this place
I'm just looking for a new routine
So he grabs his cap
And now he's living in Bowling Green
He talks his way inta
Falls for the manager
She's tried Roanoke, Rekjavik, Rome

One of them says I might take a trip to China
Thanks but no thanks, bring me back an egg roll
Bring it back
Bring it back
