Quiet nights spent sitting in a diner
The work day is finally done--for now
Nothing at all could be so much finer
Husbands align the booths, their strains minor
This solitude is all they can allow
Quiet nights spent sitting in a diner

Merchants thrill in selling a recliner
They revel in becoming a cash cow
Nothing at all could be so much finer

Just coffee for the costume designer
After a day with the cat's meow
Quiet nights spent sitting in a diner

The young street tough received a dark shiner
Just by watching O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Nothing at all could be so much finer

Escape on a grand luxury liner
Such are the thoughts of customers, their vow
Quiet nights spent sitting in a diner
Nothing at all could be so much finer
