Anthony Palazzo describes how a mason's work lasts even after he is gone.
View Lyrics
He builds a house With his hands Thirty years go by It stands It stands where nothing stood A house of stone The mason sleeps real good
He does his work His workday flies Quittin' time's a big surprise And then it's one more stone To get just right It's always one more stone Before the night
Every house he builds Every stone he lays It's not just makin' money And countin' off the days
He builds a house With his hands A hundred years go by It stands It tells you who he was A life goes fast But the work a mason does It's made to last
The work a mason does It's made to last

Grace explains that she doesn't want young people becoming millworkers because of the physical demands.
View Lyrics
Now my grandfather was a sailor, He blew in off the water My father was a farmer I, his only daughter, Took up with a no-good millworking man from Massachusetts Who dies from too much whiskey And leaves me these three faces to feed

Millwork ain't easy; mill-work ain't hard Millwork, it ain't nothing but an awful boring job I'm waiting for a day dream To take me through the morning And put me in my coffee break Where I can have a sandwich and remember

Then it's me and my machine For the rest of the morning For the rest of the afternoon And the rest of my life

Now my mind begins to wander To the days back on the farm I can see my father smiling at me, Swingin' on his arm I can hear my grand-dad's stories Of the storms out on Lake Erie Where vessels and cargos and fortunes And sailor's lives were lost

Yes, but it's my life has been wasted, And I have been the fool To let this manufacture use my body for a tool. I can ride home in the evening, Staring at my hands Swearing by my sorrow that a young girl Ought to stand a better chance

So may I work the mills Just as long as I am able And never meet the man whose Name is on the label

It be me and my machine For the rest of the morning For the rest of the afternoon And the rest of my life

Dolores Dante is a waitress who boasts the joys of her job.
View Lyrics
There's some as don't care When they put down a plate There's a sound Not with me When they move a chair It'll scrape with a grate On the ground Not with me
I will have my hand right when I place a glass Notice how I stand right as customers pass Serve a demi-tass with a gesture so gentile Or do it again 'til It's near oriental
Da da da da dum dum
It's an art it's an art To be a fine waitress To see that you pleasure each guest There's a twist to my wrist If I let a fork drop Or cut up a porkchop Or serve a New York chop It all needs be stylish and smart That's what makes it an art
I remember one day As I do now and then I had shakes And down I went There with my tray Full of seven prime tenderloin steaks And down I went
But I kept my poise - not one guest heard me fall Never made a noise - not one noise food and all If you have to crawl you give 'em what they like You carry your tray like It's almost ballet-like
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
It's an art, it's an art To be a fine waitress Each evening I treasure the test Though my chef may be deaf I stay diplomatic If I give him static He might burn the haddock Or put too much salt in a tart Even that is an art
Tips? HA! Tips are important For people like captains and barmen For them it's a tips, see? For me, I'm a gypsy Just toss me a coin And I suddenly feel like I'm Carmen
So on through the ulcer The backache, the hot, sweaty feet On you go Through, "Is your knife dull, sir?" And, "Madam wants what with her meat?" On you go
Two AM approaches, the curtains descend There among the roaches my act's at an end Every night I tend to find myself crying There's no work so trying Or so satisfying
I tell everybody that I'm a waitress and I'm proud. Somebody comes up to me and says, "Hey you're terrific. How come you're just a waitress?" Ya know what I say to them? I say, "Why? Don't you think you deserve to be served by me?"
It's an art
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS It's an art
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS To be a great waitress
GUESTS Please take care of this
WAITRESS To do without leisure or rest
GUESTS Could we have our check please?
WAITRESS So I zoom
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS Through the room
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS With a flair no one else has
GUESTS Bring some more of these
WAITRESS An air no one else has I swear no one else has My lilt
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS When I say
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS "A la carte"
GUESTS And another order to go
WAITRESS You can see it gives me a glow
GUESTS My plate, miss! My cup, miss!
WAITRESS Ev'ry time I prove I'm a pro
GUESTS I'm late, miss! Hurry up, miss!
WAITRESS Maybe I'm not quite
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS Michelangelo
GUESTS And a bag for my dog
WAITRESS But I'm not just a waitress
GUESTS You were great
WAITRESS I'm a one
GUESTS But I'm late
WAITRESS Woman
GUESTS My check please My change please
WAITRESS Show
GUESTS C'mon please Lady, let's go
