The Lyrics

Kind of confusin', all of their fusin'
Blended together it looks like oil
Love Frappuccino, topped with whipped cream-o
Beans grow on plants and plants grow in soil

Chorus:
Tastin' my life away at Starbucks coffeeville
Lookin' at the traffic on the street
There ain't no shame if you can't pronounce a name
"Mac-chi-at-to", now that is a feat

Don't know the reason I come here all season
Cold stuff and hot stuff, it's all a treat
Munch a biscotti, sip on a latte
They got alot of pastries to eat

Tastin' my life away at Starbucks coffeeville
Just attempting to enrapture my tongue
It ain't no shame if coffee beans are your game
As they say, better live while you're young

"Roast intonation", caffeine invasion
house blend, espresso, Italian roast
Komodo Dragon, taste buds are waggin'
Yukon is mellow, that is the boast

Tastin' my life away at Starbucks coffeeville
Lookin' for that fast jolt to the moon
Just see the line and smell the stuff that they grind
And like me, you'll be hooked very soon
Yes and some people say that caffeine gets in the way
But I know it helps me get through life

"The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart, as Dubya congratulated Brig. Gen. Randall Starbuck on his retirement, and the General became emotional: "Gen. Starbuck then cried over his failure to open a chain of overpriced coffee shops".
First verse ripped this chain well, then it sounds as though you became addicted after all? Five double-mocha-cappuccino-latte-whateverTF they serve, for Five bucks a throw.

I must be the last person in America to have never been in a Starbucks...but 555 for a fine job here

Dee, when you're feeling like you want a pick-up, I think Starbucks does a pretty good job of lifting one's spirits-at least the ones around here are good. It's not something I can afford every day, but I hope you go in one and check it out sometime. Thanks to all for the comments.

Royce, a little while ago a friend and I were laughing about how much time I spent at this site. I made a remark that suddenly turned into a "Margaritaville" parody, and it was submitted a bit ago. I came back here and suddenly realized that I had seen this parody 13 long hours ago, as per comment posted. Mine is unrelated in topic, but if there was any subconscious inspiration as to choice of OS, I thank you.

Sorry, Royce. I didn't mean to shout. You know how it gets. The only drug I abuse is caffeine, and I had a minor overdose there.

Had a bit of trouble singing the choruses, but that might be because I didn't get my normal fill of coffee today. Haven't been to a Starbucks in a while, but they do have good coffee.
