    Lyrics

    (Shel Silverstein)

    It's two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe
    The onions are frying the neon is bright
    And the jukebox is startin' to play.

    And the sign on the wall says In God We Trust
    All others have to pay
    And it's two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    The short order cook with the momma tattoo
    He's a turnin' them hamburgers slow
    Eggs over easy whole wheat down
    They all want that coffee to go.

    He never once dreamed as a rodeo star
    That he'd wind up here today
    At two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    There's a tall skinny girl in the booth in the back
    Wearin' jeans and a second hand fur
    She's been to the doctor then called up her man
    And now wonders just where she could turn.

    She stares at her coffee then looks toward the ceiling
    But Lord it's a strange place to pray
    At two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    There's a guy in a tux and he stands in the corner
    Feedin' the jukebox his dimes
    He just had a woman and thought that he'd bought her
    But found he'd just rented some time.

    And he couldn't sleep so he came back to see
    If anyone else wants to play
    At two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    Now there's an old dollar bill in the frame on the wall
    The first one that Rose ever made
    It was once worth a dollar a long time ago
    But like Rose it's beginnin' to fade.

    She's back off the riched dreamin' of someone
    And how things would be if he'd stay
    But it's two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    The stoop shouldered man and his frizzy haired woman
    It's strange how their eyes never meet
    He's playin' the pinball she's fixin' the blanket
    Of the baby asleep on the seat.

    He's out of work she's puttin' on weight
    And they never did have too much to say
    It's two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    The waitress Darlene she sits at the counter
    Paintin' her fingernails blue
    And the short order cook he yells move it or lose it
    And pick up an order of stew.

    But someday a rich handsome man'll walk in
    And carry her far far away
    From two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    The shaggy haired hippie he's finished his meal
    And he's countin' the change in his jeans
    Burger and coffee are eighty-five cents
    And he's only got twenty-three.

    He smiles at Rose and she winks back at him
    But Lord that's a high price to pay
    At two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe.

    The baby faced sailor he leans on the phone
    And dials the number again
    While the guy in the tux tells the girl in the jeans
    Bout wonderful places he's been.

    And a wino comes in off the street and starts shoutin'
    Bout fortunes that he threw away
    And Rosalie's asking the shaggy haired hippie
    If he's got a warm place to stay.

    And the short order cook takes a five from the till
    While Rosie's looking away
    And the onions keep frying the neon is bright
    And the jukebox continues to play.

    And it's two in the morning on Saturday night
    At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe...
