Coffee Shop Nights Lyrics


by . From Curtains.


Cioffi (spoken):
Detectives have no opening night, Miss Harris. We make our entrance after the curtain has fallen on someone elseís life.

Nikki:
It isnít wrong to be married to oneís work, is it?

Cioffi:
Ah, no. No, not at all. Sometimes itís no honeymoon.
I love my job.
(sung) I really do
And if I say so myself
Iím good at it too
I catch the bad guys
Well, most of the time
So itís a good life
A perfectly good life
Not exactly sublime
When Iíve finished my work
And I crawl into bed
I reflect as I turn out the lights
That the day thatís to come
And the week thatís ahead
Will be lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
Lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights

Nikki (spoken):
Well itís reassuring to have such a dependable schedule. Like matinees every Wednesday!

Cioffi:
Or brisket and broad beans each Thurday!

Nikki:
With your friends!

Cioffi:
Yeah, well
(sung) I like my pals
The guys on the force
Weíre not very social
Theyíre all married, of course
Sometimes we go bowling
Or have a few beers
So itís a fine life
A perfectly fine life
I'd give it Ö two cheers
'Cause sometimes I think
At the end of the day
As I read the last burglar his rights
That the life that I lead
Is a little bit gray
With its lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
Lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights

Nikki (spoken):
But your acting roles. Well donít they make for a change?

Cioffi:
Oh, Miss Harris, each year from May 23rd to the 12th of June when I turn my life over to the Swallow Street Players, thatís
more than a vacation for me. Thatís an overture of hope! Thatís the curtain rising on the greatest joy of my life. But the
rest of the year Ö
(sung) The life that I lead
Thatís a little bit gray
There are plenty of low days
And not many heights
Mostly lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
Lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
(spoken) I donít mean to seem forward, but might I walk you home?

Nikki:
Oh, Iíd be delighted! But, you said weíre not allowed to leave.

Cioffi:
Damn!
