Lyrics:

(Du du du du....)
I am sitting in the morning at the diner on the corner I am waiting at the counter for the man to pour my coffee and he fills it only halfway and before I even argue he is looking out the window at somebody coming in

(Du du du du....)
It is always nice to see you says the man behind the counter to the woman who has come in she is shaking her umbrella and I look the other way as they are kissing their hellos and I'm pretending not to see them and instead I pour the mil

I think it's safe to say this is the most annoying song ever since the B52's littered the airwaves. Now those guys wrote some really annoying stuff.

The comment under me: HELL NO. This song may be describing her morning, but it's not annoying. Get a damn life. Or dislike and shut up.

Boy am I enjoying the Garbage station.... This is a classic of the modern era. Cutely mundane in a way that encourages relaxation and thinking. Observation.

If you pay deeper attention to the meaning, she is going about her everyday, routine life, observing insignifican t occurrences, but within those nothingness is intertwined her nostalgic reminiscing of passing sweet time with the one that makes her heart beat.

I totally agree. This song is about nothing more than her chilling in a diner people-watch i n g , but it's definitely cool.

This song reminds me of a very specific time in my youth.

What's weird about the song is to hear it without the trip-hop beats & just Suzanne's vocal, as she originally recorded it. You miss the music! On the plus side, her original version lyrically goes on for a little bit after the 'bells of the ca-thee-draa a a l . . . . ' line.
