Lyrics

Hell’s Kitchen

Well I see you on the bleachers there you’re wonderin’ if you should
Cause you spent your lifetime thinkin’, you were always up to good
But now your days are older and you start to have some doubts
Cause you’ve seen them walkin’ in, but there ain’t no one gettin’ out

If you come to Hell’s kitchen you won’t need to make a fuss
Cause there’s always work for hire, lots of tables here to bus
Like that shady politician who’s made lifetimes of despair
Now he sits there in the corner losing all his hair
Or the woman at the side booth she ain’t got no mouth at all
Cause she spent her days a lyin’ till her final curtain call
If you come to Hell’s kitchen you won’t really need a name
Cause the waitress won’t take credit but you’ll ask her just the same

So stay there on your bleachers keep on wonderin’ if you should
It’s alright to spend your lifetimes thinkin’ you were only good
And so your days get longer and you start to have some doubts
Cause you’ve seen them walkin’ in but there ain’t no one gettin’ out

If you come to Hell’s kitchen you won’t need to make a fuss
Cause there’s always work for hire lots of tables here to bus
Like the man there on the floor, well he’s been cheatin’ all his life
Now the only thing he sees is the women he called wife
Or the boy that sits there between us smoking gun still in his hand
Well he took his momma’s life, he said she’d never understand
If you come to Hell’s kitchen you won’t really need a name
Cause the waitress won’t take credit but you’ll ask her just the same.
