Waitress In The Sky Lyrics

Artist: The Replacements
Album: Tim

She don't wear no pants and she don't wear no tie
Always on the ball, she's always on strike
Struttin' up the aisle, big deal, you get to fly
You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky

Paid my fare, don't wanna complain
You get to me, you're always outta champagne
Treat me like a bum, don't wear no tie
'cause you ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky

And the sign says, "Thank you very much for not smoking"
My own sign says, "I'm sorry, I'm smokin'"
Don't treat me special, don't kiss my ass
Treat me like the way they treat 'em up in first class

Sanitation expert and a maintenance engineer
Garbage man, a janitor and you my dear
A real union flight attendant, my oh my
You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky

My own says "sorry I'm smoking"

God these guys got me through high school, parents divorce, juvee hall, two friends that became meth heads and zits.

2nd verse, 4th line:
"But you aint nothing but a a waitress in the sky."
4th verse, 3rd line:
"Reunion flight attendant, my oh my."

Mara, pretty sure it's a "real union, flight attendant, my oh my", not a "reunion, flight attendant my oh my".

Hi Jimmy, there's an alternative outtake where he sings "At the reunion 'flight attendant', my oh my. Meaning that at some high school reunion or other she answers 'flight attendant' to the obvious question "So what are you doing nowadays ..."

Jan, you're wrong. the line above about being on strike clearly shows it should be real union in any context, take or version.

You had two friends who became zits?

They were as good as the Stones and the Beatles but they were too scared to pass their gods.Or they knew they were good but money,fame adulation didn't impress them much,,that was enough for them.

LOL---Great Band! Westerberg is a genius writer. Just didn't get his due. Many bands emulated after. Classic song to his sister who was a flight attendant.

I love the Replacements and Westerberg, but the reason they didn't get their due was simply due to them being addicts/alcoholics. They would show up at gigs unable even to play.
