The Lyrics

"when is somebody who remembers "Alice" gonna do 'Mel's Diner' ?"is now soon enough?
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do

I'm a waitress and I'm working at a diner kinda cruddy
And the boss is really grouchy, and there's Vera, she's my buddy
"Kiss my grits" I hear all the time from gum popping sassy ass Flo
And the food is really lousy and it only rates one star

Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do

My tv show was a movie, but it didn't have a laugh track
Cause the tv show was funny, but the film was kinda tragic
I'm a widow and I have a teenage son whose name is Tommy
He's played by a kid whose sister was Jo on The Facts of Life

Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do

My name's Alice, I don't live here anymore, you may have noticed
Cause I moved to Arizona where I'm working as a waitress
And I also am a singer, but I don't get many offers
So I'm working at Mel's diner, best that I can do for now

Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
