I got turned on to this by an old girlfriend in the mid-80s. What I remember, is that she wasn’t a waitress but she said that the sentiments in this song matched hers:
She also thought the song “Extra Executive” reminded her of her brother.
P.S. Jane Siberry’s lyrics are odd and provocative. Think Roald Dahl or Kobo Abe set to music. The title No Borders Here refers to a woman who meets a friend in dance class, but get so self-absorbed in dancing that she loses sense of time. Many years later, her friend is gone, and when she goes to the house where she lived she’s told there are no boarders living there. And then there’s the pun that Siberry is from Canada, and this was her first album released in the U.S.
