When you live in an Italian restaurant you here lots of things
A proposal or two even sometimes a secret people brings
The restaurant had been in the family for many year
Through ups and downs. And many joys and many tears
I have seen it all and I have heard it all
I have seen regulars, and Rich Men Who fell the stock market Fall
I have watched children grow up and people grow old
If only you knew of the things they have told!
I love my job. If you stare at me I will not hesitate
To stare at you back. Even if my beauty you rate
I got used to it. But if only you knew the things that I know.
I always hear something. Even when business is slow
Last winter it was brutal. It was snowy and cold
A old rich man liked me. And with his money I was sold
Now life is quite dull. Not many visitors here. By the way I think of the Tails I know and they are quite tall
If only you knew what I know! A Monet. A beautiful fly on the wall
