I WONDER WHO YOU’RE WAITING FOR
(Mike McClellan)

Sunday night, airport lounge
Along about eight fifteen
Tight black jeans and a white silk shirt
Older than she seems
Wide dark eyes and a slender face
All alone she waits
Tall and still, never moves until
They open up the race
As the passengers come through the door
I wonder who you’re waiting’ for

It’s not the man in the shorts and tan
Not the girl with the stud and curls
Not the boy with the broken heart
It’s not the ageing matriarch
It’s not the suit from Baltimore
Not the girl in the pinafore
Not the vagabond troubadour
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for

Long hair, dark as the Gucci bag
Hangin’ by her side
Old gold chain slung around her neck
Diamonds in her eyes
And I find myself wondering
Just how much they’re worth
I’m sure she knows love’s only token
Sometimes cost the earth
As the passengers come across the floor
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for

It’s not the boy in the faded jeans
Not the girl with the magazines
Not the woman with the weary face
Staring into space
Not the man with the Fin Review
Not the girl with the blue tattoo
Not the captain or the cabin crew
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for

It’s likely he’s tall, he might be dark
He’ll be a wealthy man
But I’ll never know, ‘cos he never shows
She waits and waits and waits
And waits and waits and waits

It’s not the girl with the long blonde hair
Not the man in the steel wheelchair
Not the boy comin’ back from the war
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for
It’s not the girl with the champagne eyes
Not the stud with the bedroom lies
Not the boy from Ecuador
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for
I wonder who you’re waitin’ for

Another good'un from Mike McClellan. Above is my transcription. I'm not sure of the word before 'token' in the 'I'm sure she knows ...' line.
