"Blue Plate Special Love Affair"
on: March 13, 2017, 02:24:41
It was 1947 and a young man recently discharged from the service walked in the F.W. Woolworth's for lunch, the rest is history

Blue Plate Special Love Affair

He was all puffed up and confident, ready with a pickup line
For the cute brunette with the southern drawl at the Woolworth’s Five and Dime
He at one time served his country, she at one time served him lunch
Certain she had smiled at him so he’s back to play his hunch

Cups and saucers forks and spoons shining like a lover’s moon
A taste of romance in the air, Blue Plate Special love affair

He said my name is Tony, her name tag said Louise
Old lady Cooper shouted “will you take my order please”
As she moved on down the counter, he spilled coffee down his tie
Despite the stain of clumsiness, he’d give it his best try

Three strips of bacon sizzled for his noontime BLT
He asked her to the movies, “You pick what we go and see”
She said “I’ve got these sniffles and I’m really not too sure”
“That’s okay” was his reply “what you’ve got I am the cure”

Louise just left him hanging, Mrs. Cooper wanted salt
“This old lady cramps my style” least that’s what Tony thought
When she returned he asked again, no giving up today
The silence was eternal, until a busboy dropped a tray

The world just keeps on spinning, like an old lunch counter stool
Life is filled with flavors, I hope your plate is full
Things are set in motion that no-one can foresee
The outcome of that Woolworth’s lunch just happens to be me

@Knate   @Jurgen  @Zedd     Thank you all for the kind words. This was a fun one to write. I wish "work life" didn't eat up so much of my music life, otherwise I would be much more involved on this site. Hope to find some time.


Cheers
James
