Halley's waitress
Never comes around
She's hiding in the kitchen
She's nowhere to be found
I just want some coffee
Is that too much to ask?
Halley's waitress
Is not up to the task

And when she finally appears
It's like she's been away for years

It's been so long
So long
Darling don't you know
We miss you when you're gone
So long
So long
Darling don't you know
We miss you when you're gone
Ahhh

Halley's waitress
Has vanished once again
She's talking to her agent
She's calling all her friends
Forget about the coffee
I'll just take a check
Halley's waitress
You know you'll get yours yet

It's been so long
So long
Darling don't you know
We miss you when you're gone
So long
So long
Darling don't you know
We miss you when you're gone
Ahhh

    General CommentThis is a great song. Halley is a reference to Halley's comet, which only comes around once every 75-76 years. So he's not complaining about the waitress for him and his friend Halley, he's just saying she's so bad that she's like Halley's comet.

    General Commenti can totally see the guy that wrote this sitting in a restaurant with his friend halley writing this as a joke. because the waitress is a teenage girl who probably isnt very good. and it became a song on their album. and its a good'un.

    General CommentI know the song is supposed to be sarcastic, but something about it sounds so.. gorgeous, you could say. Almost romantic. Probably my favorite one on Welcome Interstate Managers.
