The Coffee Song



I have been working on these lyrics for over 5 years, just wanted to share. We do need our waker-upper, eh?

The Coffee Song
Copyright Ric Seaberg 2011

Americano latte macchiato breve, bring me some caffeine please
Frappuccino 6 shot, sugar free, extra hot'n one of those Chinese teas
We don' work for nothin', we got bills to pay
But if you ask why I do it, this is what I'll say.......
Chorus
I'm jus' keepin' my Starbucks card in the black
That's why I do it, that's why I break my back
t'keep my Starbucks card in the black

Roll me outa bed yo, grande espresso, to get me back on track,
If you wanna treat me, then you can meet me, down at the coffee shack
I got some mean expenses....I guess that says it all
And when I'm on my knees today, workin’ in the driving rain
Chorus
Solo
Bridge
I don' need no mansion, no Mercedes Benz
All I need to satisfy, is the last and greatest legal high!!

Americano latte macchiato breve, bring me some caffeine please
Frappuccino 6 shot, sugar free, extra hot'n one of those Chinese teas
I try hard to wreck my jeans, yet another pair
Well I may not get rich this way, but I don't really care.....

Chorus, then
Last chorus
I'm jus' keepin' my, keepin' my Starbucks card in the black
That's why I do it, that's why I break my back
t'keep my Starbucks card in the black
