Just Waitin'

The old maid′s waitin' for leap year to come
The crooner′s just waitin' to sing
The old cow's standin′ by the Bull Durham sign
Just awaitin′ for the grass to turn green

The bar-fly's waitin′ for an easy mark
An' the hitch-hiker′s waitin' for a ride
The life-termer′s waitin' for a prison break
The beachcomber's waitin′ for the tide

Farmer′s daughter's waitin′ for the salesman
To take her into town
The city slicker's waitin′ for the country boy
To lay all his money down

You know everything comes to a standstill
Nothin' seems to make a turn
Worm must be waitin′ for the early bird
I guess the early bird's waitin' for the worm

Nobody wants to do nothin′
Just waitin′ to get a finger in the pie
Waitin' for a call from a big quiz show
Or hopin′ and awaitin' for some rich uncle to die

Katy, she′s waitin' at the garden gate
The moonshiner′s waitin' at the still
An' the gambler′s still waitin′ for that ace in the hole
I guess, Jack's still waitin′ for Jill

Everybody's waitin′ for somethin'
Nothin′ seems to turn out right
'Cause the night shift's waitin′ for mornin′
And the burglar just waitin' for night

The congregation′s waitin' for the preacher
Preacher just waitin′ for the groom
The groom's just waitin′ for the June bride
And the bride's just waitin' for June

Sunflowers waitin′ for the sunshine
Violets just waitin′ for dew
Bees just waitin' for honey
And, honey, I′m just waitin' for you
