  • She don't wear no pants and she don't wear no tie
    Always on the ball, she's always on strike
    Struttin' up the aisle, big deal, you get to fly
    You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
    You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky

    Paid my fare, don't want to complain
    You get to me, you're always outta champagne
    Treat me like a bum, don't wear no tie
    'Cause you ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
    You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky, oh hoh

    And the sign says, "Thank you very much for not smoking"
    My own sign says, "I'm sorry, I'm smokin'"
    Don't treat me special or don't kiss my ass
    Treat me like the way they treat 'em up in first class

    Sanitation expert and a maintenance engineer
    Garbage man, a janitor and you my dear
    A real union flight attendant, my oh my
    You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
    You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
    You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky

    Oh oh, ba ba, oh oh, ba ba, oh oh, ba, ba, oh oh Writer/s: PAUL WESTERBERG
