“Please Tip Your Waitress” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Willie Sordill.
Tune: Willie Sordill.


Sixteen tables, four chairs at each one.
Two shows every night, she’s on the run.
Three coffees here; five desserts there. Let’s go!
And some jerk over there says she’s too slow!

Please tip your waitress. She’s workin’ hard for you.
She’ll walk a few miles more before she’s through.
She’s got bills to pay and food to buy, like you.
Please tip your waitress ’cause she’s workin’ hard for you.

It’s “honey” this and “dear” that all the time.
But that’s not half as bad as all those lines.
She’s a strong woman, and her temper’s gonna perk
If one more guy asks when she gets off work.

Please tip your waitress. She’s workin’ hard for you.
She’ll walk a few miles more before she’s through.
She’s got bills to pay and food to buy, like you.
Please tip your waitress ’cause she’s workin’ hard for you.

When she gets home from work, she still can’t rest
’Cause tomorrow at the college there’s a test.
She’s up early in the morning as a rule,
Making sure the kids get off to school.

Please tip your waitress. She’s workin’ hard for you.
She’ll walk a few miles more before she’s through.
She’s got bills to pay and food to buy, like you.
Please tip your waitress ’cause she’s workin’ hard for you.

Her paycheck’s low; she does the work of two.
When something’s wrong, folks blame you-know-who.
And then they say, “Come on now! Where’s your smile?”
While the owner’s gettin’ richer all the while.

Please tip your waitress. She’s workin’ hard for you.
She’ll walk a few miles more before she’s through.
She’s got bills to pay and food to buy, like you.
Please tip your waitress ’cause she’s workin’ hard for you.
