Sun, stare, don't care with my head in my hands
Thinking of a simpler time
Like Sun Ra, feel small but I
Had it under control every time

When I was a waitress
Wearing a white dress
Look how I do this
Look how I got this

When I was a waitress
Working the night shift
You were my man
Felt like I got this

Down at the men in music business conference
Down in Orlando, I was only nineteen
Down at the men in music business conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen, mm...

Summer, sizzling, listening to
Jazz out on the lawn
Listening to White Stripes
When they were white hot
Listening to rock all day long

When I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Handling the heat
I wasn't famous
Just listening to
Kings of Leon to the beat

Like look how I got this
Look how I got this
Just sing in the street
Down at the men in music business conference
I felt free 'cause I was only nineteen
Such a scene

Summer's summer's almost gone
We were talking 'bout life
We were sitting outside till dawn
But I would still go back
If I could do it all again, I thought
Because it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
'Cause it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
Somehow it made me feel
Made me feel like a god

When I was a waitress
Wearing a white dress
Look how I do this
Look how I got this

When I was a waitress
Working the night shift
You were my man
Felt like I got this

Down at the men in music business conference
Down in Orlando, I was only nineteen
Down at the men in music business conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen, mm...

When I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Like look how I do it
Look how I got this
When I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Like look how I do this
Look how I got this

Made me feel
Made me feel like a god
It kinda makes me feel
Like maybe I was better off
Because it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
Kinda makes me feel
Like maybe I was better off

I LOVE the title of this album.. loosen up, people..
I want to like this, but every time she says "business conference" it just sounds so jarring. Sounds like a very personal song, based on a real memory...but one that would have benefited from some creative license to come up with wording that fit the rest of the song better. I'll still give it a Pretty Good. 
Breathless singing. I wish she'd stop that.
Mommy, make it stop!

Because she's done much better?
It may not be her best, but I'm surprised at the low rating..

Ha! Hated it first time. Loved it the second. What a fickle bunch we are  
I hear Kate Bush.

While not a huge fan of the breathy style, I really like the dynamics and drama.

Yikes.  Lana can do so much better than this. Not sure why she's doing the airy/whiny vocals, but I'm not a fan.


Yikes is right.  Rescued today by Walk On The Wild Side.  Thanks again, Lou.
please never again 🙏.
I was telling my wife how amazing you guys are at curating the playlist and this song came up next.  
Lana is great don’t get me wrong.
Thanks 
I have heard this several times now.... about to Sucko-Barfo it.  Not anywhere near her best work.
This is a Taylor Swift Song no? 
whispering " when I was a waitress... wearing a tight dress "  ad nauseum...  whispers breathy

I do like some of the melodies and it's a bit too gimmicky. whispery

But sometimes it just ain't worth the bother.  So much great music; so little time.......
Stunning.

I enjoy her ability to lull me into her music ..she calms my spirit

Wise comment. I'm not sure if I'll get used to the vocals. Shame because I love the lyrics and the spirit they carry. 
 

Well, thanks but in addition to the peculiar vocals, she did kind of lose me at 'Chemtrails' too. Maybe not so wise ...
At first listen, not Lana's best..maybe it'll grow on me.

Great lyrics. Takes me back to many a teenage summers, feeling free, feeling on top, feeling like a god.

Lana Del Rey is terrible, I am not sure why she gets so much play on RP
