Working on the late shift,
Pull a chair up to the table,
What kind of place am I in?
Shaking through the silver bubbles
Won't let it move me,
Could you meet the eyes
Staring through the smoke haze,
Well, I'm making sure that everything
Who's that jumping on the table?
Brushing silken dollars
Won't let it move me,
Could you meet the eyes

There again, well, so could I.
On the inside of her thigh.
I've got to get a grip.
Find a landing strip.
But I can't sit still.
Of a working girl all undressed to kill?
Last one out is a cold duck.
I wait outside, my motor running
Can I face her in the sunshine?
She walks out with recognition
Won't let it move me,
Couldn't meet the eyes
