  • Lyrics
  • In the song Sexton mentions "The Little Gem Diner off six niner". This is a real diner located in Syracuse, NY off Highway 690 and it's open 24/7. Sexton used to hang out there when he was growing up. He claims that many of his songs were written while drinking coffee in The Little Gem. >>

  • The Songfacts staff used to eat at The Little Gem, usually late at night. We strongly recommend it.

  • Joe from Bellerose, NyI heard this song for the first time today and it truly made me smile. It is a complex yet extremely happy song and will make a welcomed addition to my IPOD.
    Thanks for the music!
  • Alvin from Sioux Center, IaHahaha. Awesome. I wish there were diners around here, or any type of family eating place, but we only have mcdonalds.
