請問一首英文歌的歌名

這好像是蠻久以前的西洋歌曲

一個女生唱的,旋律很輕快

I am sitting in the morning

At the diner on the corner

I am waiting at the counter

For the man to pour the coffee

And he fills it only halfway

And before I even argue

He is looking out the window

At somebody coming in

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

這是一部份歌詞,旋律大致上都一樣,每段之間都會一直\"嘟嚕嘟嚕嘟嚕嘟嚕...\"

請告訴我歌手和歌名

    歌手:Susan Vega

    歌名:Tom's Diner

    歌詞:

    I am waiting

    At the counter

    For the man

    To pour the coffee

    And he fills it

    Only halfway

    And before

    I even argue

    He is looking

    Out the window

    At somebody

    Coming in

    "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

    I'm pretending

    Not to see them

    And instead

    I pour the milk

    I open

    Up the paper

    There's a story

    Of an actor

    Who had died

    While he was drinking

    It was no one

    I had heard of

    And I'm turning

    To the horoscope

    And looking

    For the funnies

    When I'm feeling

    Someone watching me

    And so

    I raise my head

    There's a woman

    On the outside

    Looking inside

    Does she see me?

    No she does not

    Really see me

    Cause she sees

    Her own reflection

    And I'm trying

    Not to notice

    That she's hitching

    Up her skirt

    And while she's

    Straightening her stockings

    Her hair

    Is getting wet

    Oh, this rain

    It will continue

    Through the morning

    As I'm listening

    To the bells

    Of the cathedral

    I am thinking

    Of your voice...

    And of the midnight picnic

    Once upon a time

    Before the rain began...

    I finish up my coffee

    It's time to catch the train

    歌詞大意:

    這首歌是Susan Vega在她常去的一家街角的餐廳叫做Tom's Restaurant用早餐時的情景描寫。整首歌其實非常簡單,只是把她捕捉到的一些生活剪影呈現出來,有一種隨意,一種生活的慵懶。有趣的是這首歌原本是清唱版,因為旋律的吸引人受到各國愛好者的翻唱,因此有歌詞全部改寫的版本,也有饒舌與雷鬼節奏版。這些版本原本唱片公司要禁絕,但是Susan把它們結集成一張名為Tom's Album的CD。內容都非常有意思。Susan本人非常喜歡DNA所改的舞曲版,後來在精選集裡就以舞曲版收錄。
