Here Are the Lyrics to AnnenMayKantereit & Giant Rooks’ ‘Tom’s Diner’

A cover of the Suzanne Vega single “Tom’s Diner” by German acts AnnenMayKantereit and Giant Rooks, returned the song to the Billboard Hot 100 dated April 2, entering at No. 84 — thanks to TikTok.

The remake also vaulted in at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Rock Digital Song Sales chart.

The song (inspired by New York’s Tom’s Restaurant, whose exterior is famously seen in Seinfeld) was originally recorded in a cappella form on Vega’s 1987 album Solitude Standing. It reached No. 5 on the Hot 100 in December 1990 thanks to a remix by DNA featuring Vega’s vocals.

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo

Doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo

I am sitting in the morning
At the diner on the corner
I am waiting at the counter
For the man to pour the coffee

And he fills it only halfway
And before I even argue
He is looking out the window
At somebody coming in

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo

“It is always nice to see you”
Says the man behind the counter
To the woman who has come in
She is shaking her umbrella

And I look the other way
As they are kissing their hellos
And I’m pretending not to see them
And instead I pour the milk

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo

Oh no, it is always nice to see you
It is always nice to see you
‘Cause it’s always nice to see you
It is always nice to see you

It is al-al-always nice
Al-al-always nice
It’s always nice to see you
Always nice to see you

It is al-al-always nice
Oh, it is al-al-always nice

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo
(Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo)

Oh, it is always nice to see you
Always nice
It’s always nice to see you (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo)

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo (oh, na, na, na, da, dada)
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo (ooh)

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo (oh, it is always nice to see you)
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo (always nice to see you)
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doodoo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, duhdoodoo
