Amy Ames: Music

Roll in the Hay

The original title was Drink Lot of Beer, but my mother told me, "No Beer Songs."  So, I changed it to roll in the hay.  Since roll in the hay has a double meaning, it came very naturally to me.  The waitress in the song was from an experience I saw in France where a customer made the waitress cry.  Part of me wanted to not say anything and mind my own business, but the other part of me stepped in and stood up for the waitress.  That's how this song came about.  Hope you like it.

Roll in the Hay by Amy Ames

Verse1

Her potty mouth was outrageous

In the face of a lounge waitress

The waitress she took a step on back

Said we're gonna have a little chat

I’m going to throw some advice your way

Beause it's better than this here tray

 

Chorus

Go roll in the hay

Roll in the hay

Roll in the hay

You’ll have a better day

 

Verse 2

The benefits are numerous

From a healthier heart to lower stress

It'll put you in a better mood

Maybe even stop you from being so rude

And you watch your pain all melt away

So you won't leave it here on display

 

Chorus

Go roll in the hay

Roll in the hay

Roll in the hay

You’ll have a better day

 

Verse 3

A waitress job’s quite hectic

Especially when you don’t leave a tip

I had to learn to keep a calm face

Dodging comments like a punching bag

The waitress then pulled out her cell phone

Pointing to 3 mouths to feed at home

 

Verse 4

I quietly snuck out the back door

So, potty mouth could meet my 4 by 4

Parked it right behind her foreign plates 

To make sure justice was served her way

Reminded her she forgot to leave a tip

And while in Texas enjoy your trip
