BLUE SMOKE, BLACK COFFEE, AND THE SPOTLIGHT

My baby works the late-night shift at the infirmary
And I play trumpet in the bar across the street
Oh I love the blue smoke,the black coffee and the spotlight
The people drinkin',the glasses clinkin' in the night
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
A man at the bar is yellin' at me
He don't like the show but he don't want to leave
I tell him to crawl in a bottle and cork it
But he jumps on the stage and we fight
They drag him away and he's cut on the face and he says that I'm gonna pay
My baby works the late-night shift at the infirmary
And I play trumpet in the bar across the street
Oh I love the blue smoke,the black coffee and the spotlight
The people drinkin',the glasses clinkin' in the night
My shift is over at a quarter to three
I cross the street to the infirmary
Then a voice at my back says
Remember me?
Remember me?
Remember me?
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
