For Her—by Julie Elvin and Peter Sykes

V1
I grab my tattered time card and scribble down my name
I slip on this old apron thinking here we go again
I’m carrying these trays full of empty beers
And all the while the dirty jokes are ringing in my ears

Pre chorus
And I still have one more hour
I know I’ll make it through, somehow
Chorus
And then I go back home and open up the door
I’m not the worn-out waitress I was before
I’m the mama of my little baby girl
And everything I do, I do, I do, I do
I do for her

V2
I smell like cigarettes from my head down to my toes
I can’t wait for this to end, but time just moves so slow
I’m thinking how its gonna be when I get home to see her
All the while the seconds tick-- a day can feel like years

Pre chorus
I still have one more hour
I know I’ll make it through, somehow
Chorus
And then I go back home and open up the door
I’m not the worn-out waitress I was before
I’m the mama of my little baby girl
And everything I do, I do, I do, I do
I do for her

Bridge
Every night my whole life changes when I see her face
With her angel eyes and her soft embrace
I can’t imagine life without my baby girl
She gives meaning to my world

Chorus
And then I go back home and open up the door
I’m not the worn-out waitress I was before
I’m the mama of my little baby girl
And everything I do, I do, I do, I do –I do for her
