The Lyrics

Sittin' at a window seat
Laptop on, my iPod keeps the beat
Customers rushing in
Pick up coffee and rush out again, yeah

I'm sittin' at a Starbuck's cafe
Nursing a Cafe Au Lait
Ooo, I'm just sittin' at a Starbucks cafe
I'm online

Chugging a cappuccino
Head is in a caffeine haze
V-Blogging, Skype, and IM
Don't you know, that's how I waste my days

So I'm just sittin' at a Starbuck's cafe
Ordered a Tall, my third today
Ooo, I'm sittin' at a Starbucks cafe
I'm online

Looks like I am short of change
Without coffee I will not be sane
I won't move though ten people have asked me to move
Till the call of nature causes strain

I'm recharging my Dell
Now I've spilled my coffee on it. That's swell.
And suddenly I'm not fine
'Cause I've just been forced offline

Now I'm just sittin' at a Starbuck's cafe
And it's night--no longer day
Ooo-wee, sittin' at a Starbuck's cafe
Wastin' time

(whistle)

You're going to Starbucks? I'll have a half double decaffeinated half-caf, with a twist of lemon. They only cost $5.55
