Table Talk

lyrics

Just a thought, I’d hate to ramble
On your pretty table top
You’ve gone and laid your best china down
My face reflecting of your silver gown

Twinkle at the check
With a diamond from your neck,
And the curls from your lips
Well the waiter says,
“girl, that’s better than a tip”

I’m wanting
More than I can stand on
I fall to the calling
Of a vodka handle
I’ll build a fire
With candles on the mantle

But I might not

Recall all the things I said…that other me
I blame her for my misery
She needs to leave me be that she
And stop wasting all my precious time
I’m wanting
More than I can stand on
I fall to the calling
Of a vodka handle
I’ll build a fire
With candles on the mantle

But I might not

Twinkle at the check
With a diamond from your neck,
And the curls from your lips
Well the waiter says,
“girl, that’s better than a tip”
