The Lyrics

You can probably guess I don't frequent Starbucks - I just like "coffee", in a large mug, ideally
I went into Starbucks, although I know it's wrong
I only wanted coffee but the menu's very long
One coffee
Only want one coffee
Wa-wa-want one coffee
Hopefully some time tonight

They ask do I want a long tall latte
I say "no, just a coffee" - they look at me like I'm batty
A coffee
Grande? No, a coffee
Comprendez? COFFEE
Hopefully some time tonight

One high-priced latte is, well it's a swizz
"What about Americano?" but I don't know what that is
I need coffee
Really need a coffee
Espresso? No, coffee
Hopefully some time tonight

Hopefully some time tonight
No sugar and white
Not thin or tall or light
I don't care about the height
Make it some, some time tonight

Hopefully some time tonight
Getting too uptight
Not skinny, wet or dry
Coffee, please, alright?
Make it some, some time tonight

555! Sounds like the old bait-and-switch. Those employees must work on commission.

Like your choice of black coffee, 1s for lack of taste and imagination. There are hundreds of combos of coffee not only at Starbucks, but worldwide. Your self-definition through coffee choice is boring, unispired, mundane- yeah :(

Thanks, Leough :-)

Thank you for your erudition, Luver [sic] of the tax avoiding corporate.. though if you'd read the parody, you'd have seen it was white coffee. Tell you what, you write a parody about coffee, post link to it here and let everyone know just how inspired and sparkling your taste in the stuff is. Until then, I'll assume you're simply not capable & your boorishness is matched only by your lack of any sense of humour.
