Déjà Verse: “Tom’s Diner,” Giorgio Moroder + Britney Spears

Good music speaks volumes… rather than impose analysis, step back and expose linguistic artistry… listen, look, and linger in fantastic rhythmic reality: lyrically speaking

“Tom’s Diner”Deja Vu (2015)

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

And I look
The other way

As they are kissing
Their hellos

And I’m pretending
Not to see them

Instead
I pour the milk

[Giorgio Moroder:]

Everybody is welcome
Come on, come on in
Sit yourself down
The parties never end
Love is the drug
That makes you wanna drink
Till the morning after…

[Britney Spears]

I-I-I- …
I open
Up the paper
There’s a story
Of an actor
Who had died
While he was drinking

He 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

No matter what the weather, through pain and pressure, never let them see you with your chin down – just keep swimming, just keep DOing – when you feel them watching, raise up and respect the shooter #spearsianlaw
