"Coin Laundry" as written by and Lisa Mitchell....
There I was sitting on the top of the world
In a coin laundry
Well I could have been royalty
Sitting in the palace like a queen

Do you have a dollar?
Do you have a dollar for me?
Have you got a house on a hill
And a bed for three?
Do you have a story
Do you have a story for me?
Do you know the one where
We'll all live happily

Do you, do you
Do you, do you

So now I'm here sitting on the edge
Throwing these stones to the long lost friends
I could have been a common thief
Sitting in the dirt quite happily

Do you have a dollar?
Do you have a dollar for me?
Maybe just an hour or two
And a pot of tea
Have you got a memory
Have you got a memory for me?
Tell me about the days when
You were seventeen

Do you, do you
Do you, do you

Do you have a dollar?
Do you have a dollar for me?
Have you got a little old house
And a lemon tree?
Do you have a reason?
Do you have a reason for me?
Can I be the girl that you met
In a coin laundry?

Can I be the girl that you met
Can I be the girl that you met
Can I be the girl that you met
In the coin laundry?

Can I be the girl that you met
Can I be the girl that you met
Can I be the girl that you met
In the coin laundry?

    Song MeaningI thought it was trying to get herself noticed by this guy that she saw in the coin laundry, but he won't pay attention to her and now she's desperate because he's leaving the place and that's why shes desperate in those last few lines.

    General CommentI love the line:

    'have you got a little old house and a lemon tree?'

    as though it was the most common thing you could ask. HA!


    and her look of utter desperation in the video 'Can I be the girl that you met in the coin laundry?'

    General Commentsuch a beautiful song, such a beautiful voice.

    she really did an excellent job of breaking out of the mould idol tried to impress upon her, didn't she?

    i love the music video, too. and the subtle, quiet pleading in her voice when she sings, "can i be the girl that you met in the coin laundry?"

    General CommentMy favorite line is: "Have you got a little old house and a lemon tree?"
    I think this might be one of the sweetest songs I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. One of my favrites of hers.

    General CommentI take this song to be about a sugar daddy/baby relationship where the woman isnt really asking for much. Just something simple to hold her off and in return she is asking questions keeping him engaged. The tie isnt traditional in the sense that she isn't extremely materialistic which brings the idea of the coin laundry. She is just looking for someone simple when she could have extravagant wealth.

    Pretty cool.

    Woot alright thumbs up!
