Shine On

Brother Ali

Don't pay me no mind, baby
Shine shine shine
Don't pay me no mind, sugar
Shine shine shine

I had seen you when the hosted seated you
In a station of mine still I'm taking my time
Made sure the moment got seized, made up my mind
Through a napkin over my sleeve, straightened my tie
Mind if I behold you through the fold of your menu
Couture, all up against you, oh lord
How could I convince you? I just met you
And I'm instantly listening to your instrumental
Poor me, I poured water inside your glass
For a brief moment our eyes had kind of met
I confess, I felt that inside my chest
Almost made quite a mess yet I digress
I would guess you're meeting a date here
I offer, she order hors d'oeuvres while she wait here
She brushed her bangs to clear off her face, yeah
Parted her lips and turned crab cakes to Shakespeare

The way the lady bait a trap, I'm afraid to ask
My imagination act, I run away with that
Run away with me, I swear I'm not a maniac
I'll give you that pretty diamond ring and last name to match
I ain't saying that, I practiced waiting in the back
I know I better make it fast before her date get back
Yeah, I place her order, grabbed the plate, relaxed
Here, let me fix my face get my game in tact
Fear, I chased the clock as I can't make it stop
I played the waiter job, made it to the table top
Time to play your cards, ace got to take your shot
Before I could speak he showed up to devastate the plot
Her real server showed up, my plan fell through
&"Sir, are y'all together? Ma'am, can I help you?&"
She looking puzzled, I stand without words
I'm sorry, I don't really work here - awkward

Let me explain, you see I ain't much for wait and see
So when I seen you take a seat I played maitre d'
She replied angrily, &"Mister, I can't believe
You'd stand your grown ass in this place and play games with me
Crazy freak, wait, how did you get all that food?&"
I ordered from the table around the corner and brought it to you
Can't say I thought it through, ma'am it's all sort of new
But when I saw you I sort of knew I had to talk to you
And nothing in my arsenal seemed possible
So I called an audible, Serve you? I'm honored to
I didn't mean to bother you, I just want to watch a few
Moments of your life much like a fly on a wall would do
Never mind me, the light from your unusually bright shine blinded me
So that was all I could see, (I) understand if you don't want to talk to me
I'll just leave, pardon me, I'll just take this little broken heart and leave
&"Wait, that was a stupid thing to do
But my date didn't show up and my table's set for two&"
I pulled on my coat like, aw look at you
That's all I really wanted ma'am enjoy your afternoon
I'm through
