The Lyrics

Starbucks got caught with their hands in the tip jar and the verdict is out. And I wrote a song about it.
It's plain from the price
Of a frappuccino
They shouldn't have to cheat
Their employes
But they tried to make out like a casino
And hoped the baristas
Would not say they need the money

They took from tip jars
To pay shift managers
Since what could a lowly barista say?
As far as ethics go
You can't get much worse
They're called ladrones
Where coffee is known as cafe

Even though coffee's aro-
Ma is awesome the scandal stinks
It's harder to trust them
To serve steaming drinks
Since they could be cheating
In more areas than pay
Luckily the lawyers
Won on the side that's clean
They'll be getting dough
That's no mere hill of beans
A cool hundred million
Baristas are like hooray, hooray

The profits they earned
Were astronomi-cal
But they were not content with what they made
And so they're gonna lose two billion nickels
It's best if you get those
Small drinks at a less known cafe

(Repeat the chorus a couple of times to rub it in)

Hi Ethan! Remember we always used to have that discussion about recent(ish) song vs older songs being parodied? Well, this is a more recent one that I *do* know, and thoroughly enjoyed. 5s all round. Also taught me something, to look up barista and ladrone to see what you were talking about! Good job, and take that, coffee megalopoulos!
