*I have eaten my share of meals out in restaurants, big and small, high and low. Part of the enjoyment of dining out is, of course, being served by someone else and not having to worry about preparing the food or cleaning up afterwards. I also must confess that I have often paid more attention than necessary to the waitress. For the longest time, I kind of considered this my own dirty little secret. However, in the course of riding my bike over the past few months and listening to music on the bluetooth speaker on my water bottle, I have come to realize that I am not alone when it comes to lusting after a waitress. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.*
Herewith three tunes from over the years about a hot waitress.
The most recent, in my experience, but by no means actually recent, the intoxicating beat of “I wanna get next to you” by Rose Royce from the movie Car Wash. The narrator bemoans “Girl, you make me feel so insecure; you’re so beautiful and pure.”
Next is by the redoubtable Louis Prima who “eats antipasto twice because she is so nice …” She being Angelina. Prima was the consummate entertainer who was one of the premier headliners in Las Vegas in its early years. Sadly, I couldn’t find a version showing him belting this tune out.
That offering was by one of my countrymen, the final one – Hazel’s Hips – by Oscar Brown, Jr., who grew up on Chicago’s south side. Oscar describes the “concert of contours and curves as she slips to and fro round the tables she serves …”
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. By all means feel free to offer any songs I may have overlooked on the subject.
