We all long to connect with that soulmate that we hope is out there...somewhere...waiting for us.

Speed Queen Mystery Date - Dave Birk © 2012

Every Monday night I do my laundry at 8 P.M.
At the Speed Queen Laundry on the corner of Union & Penn
You know the one where the sign’s always flickering
With the retro plastic chairs in bright orange, yellow, and green

On my final load when my last quarter makes an escape
Mr. Washington rolls to a perfectly unreachable place
I lay my pride on the floor, everyone’s staring at me
Then the pretty girl says, “hey, you can share a dryer with me”

Speed Queen mystery date
55 minutes to determine our fate
I need a shot of courage and some fascinating things to say to my Speed Queen mystery date

She’s flying out tomorrow and her laundry couldn’t wait
I throw my hands in the air and say “yeah, typical, that’s just great”
She’s asking me, “what’s wrong” and I keep playing it straight
I pout that she leaving me after only just one date… “I think you’re my soul mate”

Speed Queen mystery date
55 minutes to determine our fate
I need a shot of courage and some fascinating things to say to my Speed Queen mystery

Speed Queen mystery date
55 minutes to determine our fate
Life unfolds with the choices we make
Life unfolds with the chances that we take yeah
My Speed Queen mystery date
Speed Queen mystery date
Speed Queen mystery date
