What I should have done was apologize, but he fled with his fries before I could get a word out. I should have bought him another portion, but I was afraid if I approached him again, he’d think I was after another. Now I always sing this to myself, whenever I go there.
To the tune of The Gambler, sung by Kenny Rogers.
You never eat your fries
when you’re standing at the counter
because for all that you know
they might belong to him
There’ll be time enough for eating
when you’re sure they're yours
