[Forward to a Friend]

everybody remembers this song.
But what is it called?!

You guys remember that old r&b song. early 90's or late 80's. female vocalist, she kinda raps the words more than she sings them.
Some of the lyrics are "i was sitting by the fire and a man came to the window"

the chorus the whole song is "do do do do do do do do"

everybody remembers this song.
Suzanne Vega featuring DNA - Tom's Diner

Click here to watch the video

Tom's Diner

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

"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

I'm pretending
Not to see them
I pour the milk

I open
Up the paper
There's a story
Of an actor

Who had died
While he was drinking
It was no one
I had heard of

And I'm turning
To the horoscope
And looking
For the funnies

When I'm feeling
Someone watching me
And so
I raise my head

There's a woman
On the outside
Looking inside
Does she see me?

No she does not
Really see me
Cause she sees
Her own reflection

And I'm trying
Not to notice
That she's hitching
Up her skirt

And while she's
Straightening her stockings
Her hair
Is getting wet

Oh, this rain
It will continue
Through the morning
As I'm listening

To the bells
Of the cathedral
I am thinking
Of your voice...

And of the midnight picnic
Once upon a time
Before the rain began...

I finish up my coffee
It's time to catch the train

My gosh dan, you are the man!! You should have your own show - "Name the Tune". I'm trying to hook up my cassette player to my computer so I can download this song I've been looking for since I was a teenager (I'm kind of old now :P ) then. But in the mean time the hook goes something like this - or it sounds like this.
"It can work for you, it worked for me, it can be so sweeeett, if you (something something) true love. It can work for yooouu! then it goes - Love - it can work for me, it can work for, if you love some true then you can be loved too. This song was out back in the 80's - 90's era. In falls in the category of Stevie B's "Spring Love, come back to me", and I'm Hooked on you - by sweet sensation. If you can help - I would be totally greatful.
