lyrics

Stripper from bensonhurst
Puts her ring back on
Meets my eyes briefly
Wanders into the drizzling dawn
Orders an egg sandwich
In a voice roughly rendered
Places 4 bills on the counter
Cash I earlier tendered

Sips a beer and watches the today show
This is not how new york was supposed to go

Steps onto the queensboro platform
Braces herself for the long ride home
Puts her hair up
Turns on her phone
Her man is a janitor
He’s been asleep for hours
She doesn’t even look at him
As she steps into the shower

Sips a beer and watches the today show
This is not how new york was supposed to go

Massages her calf
Slips a mask over her eyes
Knows in seven hours
She’ll have to again rise

Sips a beer and watches the today show
This is not how new york was supposed to go

“Oddball storytelling with a lo-fi country sensibility” – Time Out New York
