Cal: (Spoken) Jenna! What's the special pie today?

Jenna: Uh, deep shit blueberry bacon.

Cal: Deep shit?

Jenna: Ye- uh, dish! Deep dish. Sorry, Cal!

Cal: C'mon, girl.

Jenna: (Sung) THE DAY STARTS LIKE THE REST WE'VE SEEN
ANOTHER CARBON COPY OF AN OLD ROUTINE

Becky: DAYS KEEP COMING

Dawn: ONE OUT, ONE IN

Becky, Dawn, Jenna: THEY KEEP COMING

Cal: (Spoken) And make the coffee strong enough to chew!

Jenna: (Sung) I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WISH I HAD
BUT THERE'S NO TIME NOW FOR THINKING THINGS LIKE THAT
WE'VE GOT TOO MUCH TO DO

Becky, Dawn: TOO MUCH TO DO

Jenna, Becky, Dawn: ALL THESE SAME THINGS
WE'RE ALWAYS

OPENING UP
LETTING THE DAY IN
OVER A CUP
WE'LL SAY "HELLO, HOW YA BEEN?"
LOOKING AROUND
SEEING THE SAME THINGS
EVERY DAY BRINGS
"HELLO, HOW YA BEEN?"
"THANK YOU, COME AGAIN!"
SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE

Becky:
I WOULDN'T CALL THIS PLACE A HAPPY END
BUT I BEEN ROUND THE BLOCK AND JUST CAME BACK AGAIN
A SMALL TOWN LIKE OURS AIN'T MUCH
BUT SOMETIMES HOME IS WHERE YOUR ASS ENDS UP

Cal:
ORDER UP!

Dawn:
ORDERED UP IS HOW THE DAY WILL FIND ME
EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE AND TIME
AND I LIKE THE WAY MOST OF THE DAYS LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME

Cal:
ORDER UP!

Jenna, Becky, Dawn:
CHECK THE CLOCK
TICK, TICK TOCK

Cal:
DON'T STOP!
SERVE WITH A SMILE!

Jenna, Becky, Dawn:
HURRY UP, FILL THE COFFEE CUP
AND THEN IN A WHILE
TAKE A BREATH WHEN YOU NEED TO BE REMINDED THAT WITH DAYS LIKE THESE
WE CAN ONLY DO THE BEST WE CAN
TILL WE DO IT AGAIN

Cal:
COME ON, MOVE IT NOW!

Jenna, Becky, Dawn:
OPENING UP
LETTING THE DAY IN
OPENING UP
SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE
"HELLO, HOW YA BEEN?"
"THANK YOU, COME AGAIN!"
SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE
