Mister Choi & Madame G

Mister Choi & Madame G lyrics

Mister Choi & Madame G

Across my street
I am looking at a store
I don't go to anymore
But, I used to very often
Now it's sitting like a coffin
Slightly used
I'm remembering the whole thing
Unamused

This place was just a fruit stand
I think
Was run, I think
By Eastern Europeans
Who in a year were
Bought out by Koreans
And their family from Seoul
Who fed me at their family sink
We ate Kim Chi
And followed their traditions
I told them about my craziest ambitions
And they handed me a bowl
Filled with luck and self control

Looking in the window of this empty house space
I see their reflections in my face
I see Mister Choi and Madame G
Squawking at their family
Who stand there with these irritated grins
The children always practicing their violins
Open 24 hours from dawn till dawn
And one day they were gone

What happened to these wonderful friends
In twenty years
I never got a letter
I hope their lives got infinitely better
And I wanted to explain
How their friendship kept me sane

Looking in
Looking in
The window of this empty house space
Empty house space
I see there
I see there
Reflections in my face, face

I see Mister Choi and Madame G
Mister Choi and Madame G
Treating me like family
Treating me like family
They cooked
I fed their children and their cat
Ooh
I wasn't staff
But made them laugh and that was that
Open 24 hours from dawn till dawn
And one day they were gone
Open 24 hours
From dawn till dawn
And one day they were gone
And one day they were gone
And one day they were gone
And one day they were gone
