It Is Always Nice To See You Says The Man Behind The Counter Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I am sitting in the morning at the diner on the corner

I am waiting at the counter for the man to pour the coffee

And he fills it only halfway and before I even argue

He is looking out the window at somebody coming in


[Verse 2]

"It is always nice to see you," says the man behind the counter

To the woman who has come in, she is shaking her umbrella

And I look the other way as they are kissing their hellos

And I'm pretending not to see them, and instead I pour the milk


[Verse 3]

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 I'm turning to the horoscope and looking for the funnies

When I'm feeling someone watching me and so I raise my head


[Verse 4]

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'm trying not to notice that she's hitching up her skirt

And while she's straightening her stockings, her hair has gotten wet


[Verse 5]

Oh, this rain, it will continue through the morning as I'm listening

To the bells of the cathedral

I am thinking of your voice


[Verse 6]

And of the midnight picnic once upon a time before the rain began

And I finish up my coffee

And it's time to catch the train


[Outro]

Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo

Spanish Version Lyrics

[Verso 1]

Estoy sentado por la mañana en el restaurante de la esquina.

Estoy esperando en el mostrador a que el hombre sirva el café.

Y lo llena solo a la mitad y antes de que yo discuta

Él está mirando por la ventana a alguien que entra


[Verso 2]

"Siempre es bueno verte", dice el hombre detrĂĄs del mostrador.

A la mujer que ha entrado agita su paraguas

Y miro para otro lado mientras se dan un beso de saludo

Y estoy fingiendo no verlos, y en cambio sirvo la leche


[Verso 3]

Abro el periĂłdico, hay una historia de un actor

Quien habĂ­a muerto mientras bebĂ­a, no era nadie de quien hubiera oĂ­do hablar.

Y me dirijo al horĂłscopo y busco las cosas divertidas

Cuando siento que alguien me mira y levanto la cabeza


[Verso 4]

Hay una mujer afuera mirando adentro, ¿me ve?

No, ella realmente no me ve porque ve su propio reflejo

Y estoy tratando de no darme cuenta de que se estĂĄ subiendo la falda

Y mientras se alisa las medias, se le ha mojado el pelo


[Verso 5]

Oh, esta lluvia continuarå durante la mañana mientras escucho

A las campanas de la catedral

Estoy pensando en tu voz


[Verso 6]

Y del picnic de medianoche una vez antes de que comenzara la lluvia

Y termino mi café

Y es hora de tomar el tren


[Outro]

Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
