At the diner on the corner

For the man to pour the coffee
And he fills it only halfway
And before I even argue
He ______________ out the window
At somebody coming in
"It is always nice to see you"
Says the man behind the counter
To the woman who has come in
She ___________ her umbrella
And I look the other way
As they _____________their hellos
I'm _________________ not to see them
Instead I pour the milk

I open up the paper there's a story
Of an actor who had died
While he was drinking
It was no one I had heard of

And so I raise my head
There's a woman on the outside
Looking inside, “Does she see me?”
No she does not really see me
Cause she sees her own reflection
And I'_________________ not to notice
That she's hitching up her skirt
And while she's straightening her stockings
Her hair has gotten wet
Oh, this rain it will continue
Through the morning
As I'_______________ to the bells of the cathedral
I ___________________ of your voice...
And of the midnight picnic
Once upon a time
Before the rain began
I finish up my coffee
It's time to catch the train
