DANNY'S ALL-STAR JOINT (Rickie Lee Jones) Rickie Lee Kones - 1979 Sarah Green - 1996 Vikki True - 2002 Downstairs at Danny's All-Star joint They got a juke box that goes doyt-doyt The vice is nice, they stay in the back all day But when the nighttime comes, hey-hey There's this cat down there that makes a bad kinda soup I come around struttin' my luck in my shoop coupe Cecil gives me coffee And he won't never take my coin I say, "I got thirty dollars in my pocket! Whatchoo doin'?" I holler, "Come on, Cecil, take a dollar! Come on, Cecil, take a ten! I've finally geared up into a whole buncha big ones And you're actin' like I'm down-shiftin'" He knows all the under-riders on the boulevard They got to barefoot cruise when it's forty-weight hard They look particularly dead-beat Permanently pale Cecil picks up his butcher knife Waves it at the jail The kid say, "I ain't got no dough, Joe, I just want some OJ" I said, "Don't look at me" (Cuz he was lookin' my way) Cecil wink upon him some juice and some green And the kid walks over and puts the quarter in the pinball machine And he says, "Come on, Cec, gimme a dollar Come on Cecil gimme five I'm in a halfway house on a one-way street And I'm a quarter past left alive" He can talk about your people in a wonderful way He can talk about your people 'til your hair turns grey Your sisters into mustard, She loves to walk the pup She like pickles and a relish, She never gets enough A Hershey milkshake Steamin on a stick, For a Carte Blanche Sandwich Oh lettuce get thick... It's not becuase I'm dirty, It's not because I'm clean, It's not because I kiss the boys behind a magazine... Hey Boys, how 'bout a fight? Here comes Ricky with the girdle on tight And if she dont know your name, She knows what you got, From your matzo balls To the chicken in the pot.. Chicken in the pot... Chicken in the pot... Chicken in the... Dooowwwnnn stairs at Danny's All-Star joint They got a jukebox that goes doyt-doyt A finger-snappin' deluxe Make your be-bop bap And your r and b hep-scat You cant break the rules until you know how to play the game But if you just wanna have a little fun you can mention my name Keep your feet in the street... Your toes in the lawn... But keep your business in your pocket Thats where it belongss Come on, Cecil, take a dollar Come on, Cecil, take a tip Do your self a favour If she offers it, take it, But honey, dont give it away if he dont appreciate it
