The Lyrics

Written in honor of my favorite coffee shop, Espresso Royale
I'm through with standing in line
To clubs I'll never get in
It's like it's already finals
And I'm never gonna win
College hasn't turned out
Quite the way I want it to be

(Tell me what you want)

I want some fresh ground beans
From a place I've never been
In a mug that I can do backstrokes in
And a comfy chair big enough
for ten plus me
(So what you need?)

I'll need a caffeine buzz that's got no limit
In a big glass mug with espresso in it
Gonna get my mind working
At thirty times its normal speed

(Been there, done that)

I want a big notebook full of poetry
Gonna be a big writer someday you see
Somewhere between God and
Shakespeare is fine for me

(So how you gonna do it?)


I'm gonna give up drinks that all taste the same
I'll even drink some stuff that I can't name

Chorus:
Cause we all just want to drink good coffee
And sit at tiny tables drinking ground up beans
The buzz comes easy but it isn't cheap
We'll all stay wired cause we just won't sleep
And we'll hang out in the coffee shops
And just trade B.S. with the friends we got
Every wannabe scholar's gonna wind up there
Every burnt out poser with the unwashed hair

Hey, hey, I wanna drink good coffee(2x)

I wanna be smart like Hawking without Lou Gehrig's
Writing articles like academic bigwigs
Gonna get my club card punched
So I can get one drink for free
(I'll have a large mocha, on the house)
I'm gonna dress my ass somewhat out of fashion
Get a big latte that cost a king's ransom
Gonna find a barista
That loves to foam my latte for me
(So how you gonna do it)
I'm gonna give up drinks that all taste the same
I'll even drink some stuff that I can't name
(chorus)

And we'll hide out in the smoking room
With the latest dictionary and and ipod too
They'll serve you anything with that evil smile
Everybody's got Juan Valdez on speed dial
Hey, hey, I wanna drink good coffee

I'm gonna drink those beans
That are dark and bolder
Gonna tell my parents to give up Folgers
I'll tell all my friends to spread the word out
Let's tell em no one should touch that Maxwell House
(Chorus)

And we'll hide out in the smoking room
With the latest dictionary and and ipod too
They'll serve you anything with that evil smile
Everybody's got Juan Valdez on speed dial
Hey, hey, I wanna drink good coffee
Hey, Hey, I wanna drink good coffee
