JUDY (Shel Silverstein) Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show - 1971 The waitress with the orange hair keeps motionin' me to hurry up and leave So I gulp my coffee - burn my mouth - grab up my coat and slippin' out I smear a streak of mustard down my sleeve And the guy behind the register takes my bread and shakes his head And looks at me as though I've blown his mind Hey, I just come here for some coffee…hope I'm not wastin' anybody's time And Judy I'm slowly movin' back to you And I wish that I could say I'll treat you better than I used to It's just I'm learnin' lots of things I never knew back then Judy I'm slowly movin' back again Judy I'm slowly movin' back again That blue eyed barracuda smiles and tells me she could use some brand new clothes She grabs my leg and with a wink, asks if I want another drink She's not the campfire girl you might suppose But she's so busy tellin' me her troubles I don't think she's got time For any kind of trouble small as mine Hey, I just come in here for nothin'… hope I'm not wastin' anybody's time And Judy I'm slowly movin' back to you And I wish that I could say I'll treat you better than I used to It's just I'm learnin' lots of things I never knew back then Judy I'm slowly movin' back again Judy I'm slowly movin' back again Well I'm stopped here on the corner, when the red faced cop says move along your way But my nose is cold and my toes are numb, I got no feeling in my thumb I think I just might stop inside that church and maybe pray But they pass the plate and they look at me when it turns out that I ain't got a dime Hey, I just come in here to talk to GOD… hope I'm not wastin' anybody's time And Judy I'm slowly movin' back to you And I wish that I could say I'll treat you better than I used to It's just I'm learnin' lots of things I never knew back then Judy I'm slowly movin' back again Judy I'm slowly movin' back again
