Invitation To The Blues Lyrics

Well, she's up against the register with an apron and a
With yesterday's deliveries, and the tickets for the
She's a movin' violation from her conk(2) down to her
But it's just an invitation to the blues

And you feel just like Cagney(3), she looks like Rita
At the counter of the Schwab's Drugstore(5)
You wonder if she might be single, she's a loner, likes
to mingle
Got to be patient, try and pick up a clue

She said: How you gonna like 'em, over medium or
You say: Anyway's the only way, be careful not to
on a guy with a suitcase and a ticket gettin' out of
in a tired(6) bus station, in an old pair of shoes
cause it ain't nothin' but an invitation to the blues

But you can't take your eyes off her, get another cup
of Java
It's just the way she pours it for you, jokin' with the
Mercy mercy, Mr. Percy, there ain't nothin' back in
but a broken down jalopy(7) of a man I left behind
and a dream that I was chasin', and a battle with the
and an open invitation to the blues

But she used to have a sugar daddy(8) and a candyapple
And a bank account and everything, accustomed to the
finer things
He probably left her for a socialite, and he didn't
love her 'cept at night
And then he's drunk and never even told her that he
So they took the registration, and the car keys and his
and left her with an invitation to the blues

But there's a Continental Trailways leavin' Local bus
tonight, good evenin'
You can have my seat, I'm stickin' round here for a
Get me a room at the Squire, and the fillin' station's
Now I can eat here every night, what the hell have I
got to lose?
Got a crazy sensation, go or stay, and I gotta choose
And I'll accept your invitation to the blues
