Midnight at the Grocery Store

lyrics

It was midnight at the grocery store
I'd forgotten what I came there for
So I stopped and thumped the produce for awhile
Then all pink and round I saw her there
I did my best, tried not to stare
But I starting closing in to the Frito aisle

Eye shadow blue, red lipstick lips
Right near a wall of flavored chips
Hair rollers rolled my heart around
Her flip flops flipped, my head did spin
She caught my gaze, she smiled and then
I dropped my can of bean dip to the ground

Her makeup made her look surprised
Her eyebrows aimed into my eyes
She had a way of looking right through you
The girl in the pink muu muu

When I came to, she was gone
I was on the floor at the break of dawn
A sad love song on the grocery store PA
Intercom said “clean up aisle four”
I stumbled out the exit door
A big fuchsia sky hung over me that day

Her makeup made her look surprised
Her eyebrows aimed into my eyes
She had a way of looking right through you
The girl in the pink muu muu

So don't waste your chance, I lost my dream
Love comes wrapped in many things
It appears, then disappears too soon
Now every night I walk the aisles
In a bathrobe, slippers with a crazy smile
My love floated in like a rose balloon

Her makeup made her look surprised
Her eyebrows aimed into my eyes
She had a way of looking right through you
The girl in the pink muu muu
The girl in the pink muu muu
The girl in the pink muu muu
Muu muu
