Brewin the Coffee at Starbucks

(to the tune of “Killing Me Softly with His Song”)

Customer comes to the counter

Orders a soy-based latté

Brewin the coffee at Starbucks

How did I end up at Starbucks?

Spinning my wheels here at this job

Makin the coffee - every day

 

I graduated college

And had a lot of debt

But when I looked for jobs I

Got really quite upset

Cuz there were no positions

Except this one a servin

 

Customers up at the counter

Mixing their custom lattés

Brewin the coffee at Starbucks

Selling my soul here at Starbucks

Numbing my senses with each cup

Brewin' up coffee - constantly

 

I want to be an artist

Of musical renown

My songs would speak to people

If ever they felt down

But my creative spirit

Evaporates when I hear

 

Customers up at the counter

Ordering Venti lattés

Makin the coffee at Starbucks

Pouring my heart out at Starbucks

Bleeding my talents on orders

Makin the dark roast - all the time

 

I hope its not a pipe dream

That I get to perform

And my creative efforts

Can take the world by storm

But up until that happens

My energy will go towards

 

Customers up at the counter

Ordering custom lattés

Makin the coffee at Starbucks

Biding my time here at Starbucks

Pushing the house blend of java

Makin the dark roast - nine to five

 

Oooooooooh lalalalalalalalalalala 

Oooooooh lalalalalalala

 

Customers up at the counter

Order their custom lattés

Makin the coffee at Starbucks

Biding my time here at Starbucks

Pushing the house blend of java

Makin the dark roast - nine to five

 

Fade out
