Service with a Smile

You can’t come?

Oh that’s okay, it’s no big deal

(I planned this for hours!)

When things don’t work out I can still smile

Because it’ll be okay eventually

(I really don’t know if I believe that anymore)

Look, you’re sweet, you really are

But I’m not looking for something right now—

(Actually I’m lonely but not that fucking lonely)

Yeah I have plans after work

I’m meeting up with some old friends

(Their names are Bailey’s and Ice Cream)

Hi, how are you?

I’m good how are you?

(I skipped my anti depressant today!)

Everything’s fine.

I’m just a little tired.

(God help me I’m falling apart again)

Hi how are you?

I’m wonderful, how are you?

(I wish I could sleep and never wake up)

Oh that’s good, have a wonderful day!

(Eat shit)

I really am not looking for anyone

(STOP GIVING ME YOUR FUCKING NUMBER)

Service with a smile,

Hi, how are you, I’m good, how are you?

(I want to stab his eyes out with a toothpick)

Service with a smile,

Oh, haha, that’s a nice name and nice number—

(Look can’t you tell I’m paid to smile at you?!)

Hi, how are you,

I’m fine, how are you?
