lyrics

A Greasy Griddle and a Short Order Cook
Words and music by Steven Grossman

In a Castro café after hours
craving burgers, buns and fries
I was reaching for hot sauce and salt on the counter
when the flip of an egg caught my eye
It wasn’t the crazy wrist action that started the attraction
the sunny side over that got me to look
I couldn’t ask for a better sight
on a long and a cold Monday night

Chorus:
Than a greasy griddle, a short order cook, boy
A greasy griddle and a short order cook
He’s got a hell of a lot of work
there’ll be a hell of a lot of perking tonight, tonight, tonight
He’s got a hell of a lot of work
there’ll be a hell of a lot of perking tonight

Waiters in sneakers, trays in the air
carrying water, checks, and change
I was trying to stay steady but my seat began to swivel
to the sound of somethin’ sizzlin’ on the range
It wasn’t the fish deep-fryin’ that got me sighin’
but a voice so cherry that everything shook
A Broadway evening couldn’t be finer
than the show that was playing at the diner

Chorus

Now, how about another cup of coffee? – “No, No!”
Another piece of pie? – I said “No, No
There’s only one thing that I’m wanting to go”

Well it’s a quarter to four and I ought to be at home
cuddled up and cozy with some cuddly guy
If the devil doesn’t get me before, then when it’s time to go
I’m gonna look for that neon sign in the sky
When the muffins are poppin’ and the kitchen is hoppin’
I will never again settle for a rocker and book
The equator couldn’t be much hotter
than the time I will make when I got, oh boy
A greasy griddle, a short order cook, boy
a greasy griddle and a short order cook
A greasy griddle and a short order cook, boy
a greasy griddle and a short order cook.
