Kim The Waitress

Pressed lips and slender hips turning in my head Writing poems in the corner booth that I'd die if she read Seeing her in but a silver cross lying on her bed No one can save us, but Kim the waitress... No one can save us, but Kim the waitress... Nobody can save us, but Kim the waitress always turns me on Sometimes she comes with coffee reaching over pouring I'd like to gently pull her to me and kiss her with no warning Or see her on some sunny summer Sunday morning No one can save us, but Kim the waitress... No one can save us, but Kim the waitress... Nobody can save us, but Kim the waitress always turns me on But she never come around anymore And that bothers me (I'm unhappy) It bothers me (I'm unhappy) It bothers me (I'm unhappy) Though I don't stand a ghost of a chance with her She's pretty (and it bothers me) So pretty (and it bothers me) So pretty (and it bothers me) And it bothers me (I'm unhappy) 'Cause no one can save us, but Kim the waitress... No one can save us, but Kim the waitress... Nobody can save us, but Kim the waitress... Always... Turns me... On No one can save us ________________________ Words and music by Jeff Kelly (c) 1985 Half The World Publishing, BMI Who was the real Kim the waitress and how did it become a song?
