THEM STARBUCKS BLUES





I WOKE UP THIS MORNIN
I HAD THEM STARBUCKS BLUES
I WOKE UP THIS MORNIN
I HAD THEM STARBUCKS BLUES
SO MANY STARBUCKS TO GO TO
I DIDN'T KNOW WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE

CAUSE THERE'S A STARBUCKS ON THE CORNER
ANOTHER ONE DOWN THE STREET FROM THAT
THERE'S A STARBUCKS ON THE CORNER
AND ANOTHER ONE DOWN THE STREET FROM THAT
I'LL TAKE A GRANDE LATTE
AND WON'T YOU PLEASE MAKE IT NONFAT

I'VE BEEN TO A STARBUCKS IN NEW YORK
ONE IN MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE
SEATTLE WHERE IT STARTED
AND SALT LAKE CITY
I'VE BEEN TO A STARBUCKS IN HONOLULU
AND ONE IN OLD CHICAGO
I HEAR THERE'S ONE IN BANGKOK, THAILAND
WELL THAT'S TOO DAMN FAR TO GO

WHEN I TAKE MY BABY TO STARBUCKS
THERE'S ALWAYS A LONG, LONG LINE
FILLED WITH FUSSY YUPPIES
WASTIN EVERYBODY'S TIME
THEY WANT THEIR EXTRA HOT, DOUBLE SHOT
NO FOAM WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHAS
THEIR MACCHIATOS, THEIR FRAPPACINOS
THEIR CHAI TEAS
BUT IT'S JUST A COUPLE OF
GRANDE NON FAT LATTES
FOR MY BABY AND ME

THERE'S A STARBUCKS ON THE CORNER
AND ANOTHER ONE DOWN THE STREET FROM THAT
(YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKIN ABOUT
YOU'VE SEEN EM)
BUT DID YOU SEE INSIDE THE GLENDALE GALLERIA
THERE'S A STARBUCKS INSIDE A STARBUCKS
IMAGINE THAT
(I SURE CAN'T)
NOW MR. BARISTA BEHIND THE COUNTER
I'LL TAKE A GRANDE LATTE
AND WON'T YOU PLEASE MAKE IT NONFAT
