The Lyrics

i know the coffee price is probably wrong but this song is just saying how overpriced starbucks is and before you ask....i don't like coffee anyway enjoy
Double skinny latte with whipped cream
Why can’t you be more than just a dream?
My, my, my...my, my, my, my, my, my, my
With some crushed hazelnut on the top for flavour

Without whipped cream there’s no point
I will find another joint
My, my, my...my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Why did I choose Costa over Starbucks?

And I want some extra sugar, don’t forget my hazelnuts
And I want some chocolate sprinkles, and a heat reducing cup
And maybe I should throw in, one of those wafer things
My coffee’s as expensive, as a diamond ring

Double skinny latte with whipped cream
How could Starbucks coffee be so mean?
My, my, my...my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Charging £3.25 for one small cup

And I wish it could be cheaper, or at least under £3
Because I cannot go to Costa, their beans aren’t even ground
And when you buy it from there, you don’t even get a mound
Of hazelnuts and whipped cream, how can this be allowed

Need my coffee, at lunchtime
Or I won’t make, the 9 to 5

Double skinny latte
My, my, my...my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Why do you have to be so overpriced?

£3.25 for a cup of coffee sounds a bit excessive to me. I think you could buy whole pound of the stuff for that in Kansas City. Not sure though. Never acquired the taste. How much does a Nestlé Aero chocolate bar go for on your side of the ocean?

like i said in the top comment the price isn't accurate just a notion to the fact that coffee shops are overpriced
