mario’s cafe lyrics – saint etienne

transcribed by gerry

[introduction sample:]
cigarette, a cup of tea, a bun.

ooh… /
b*tton up your sheepskin carraway, / rainy cafe, kentish town, tuesday. /
barry’s looking through the racing post, / orders coffee, another round of toast. /
lucy writes a letter, / she’d like to spend an evening with prince b. /
[when they perform the song live, the verse is often extended to:
lucy writes a letter, / and harvey throws his arms around vanessa /
? spoke with pm dawn? / she’d like to spend an evening with prince b.]

when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
everyone’s dreaming of all they’ve got to live for, /
joking around, still digging that sound. /
everyone’s dreaming of all they’ve got to live for. /

squeezy bottles under pepsi signs, / joe and johnny chew the bacon rind. /
jackie wants to meet the glitter band, / dilworth is a strange and lovely man, /
and eubank wins the fight, / and did you see the klf last night? /
[when they perform the song live, the verse is often extended:
robbie wants to be the heavy [? ] /? /]

when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
everyone’s dreaming of all they’ve got to live for, /
joking around, still digging that sound. /
everyone’s dreaming of all they’ve got to live for. /

rainy cafe, kentish town, tuesday, /
joking around, still digging that sound. /
everyone’s dreaming of all they’ve got to live for. /

when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. (ten a.m.) /
when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. /
when we meet for a while, / tuesday morning ten a.m. (ten a.m.)/
when we meet for a while (meet for a while, / meet for a while, meet for a while.) /
when we meet for a while (meet for a while, / meet for a while, meet for a while.)
