The Lyrics

My music hobby is performing old songs (mainly 30’s through 70’s). I write funny parodies for some of them. I change the song’s serious theme to something funny but retain original lyrics and rhyme as much as possible. This one got started by changing the song theme from "a bar in Toledo" to "Starbucks in Toledo".
At Starbucks in Toledo across from the depot
She drank their last latte supreme
I thought Id get closer so I walked on over
I sat down and asked her her name

When caffeine finally hit her she said I’m not bitter
But they ran out of latte supreme
I’m hungry for latte, and caffeine is my way
I’m after whatever the Starbucks life brings

In the mirror I saw him and I closely watched him
He walked at a fast coffee pace
He rushed to the table and sat there beside us
He had a strange look on his face

His big hands were shaking, he picked up the table
For a moment I thought I was dead
Starbucks started quaking, as the table was breaking
And he turned to the woman and said

(CHORUS)
How could you do this Lucille
You drank the last latte and you know how I feel
I’ve had some bad times, been through some sad times
But this time the hurting won’t heal
You drank the last latte Lucille

After he left us she wanted more coffee
But we had just missed the last call
So from the Starbucks room, to another caffeine room
We walked without talking at all

I ordered two lattes, and while this made her happy
She must have thought I lost my mind
As I started to throw up
When his words to her popped up
And kept coming back time after time


(CHORUS)
How could you do this Lucille
You drank the last latte and you know how I feel
I’ve had some bad times, been through some sad times
But this time the hurting won’t heal
You drank the last latte Lucille

I like this parody. Quite funny, especially the part where the dude picks up the table and Starbucks starts quaking while the table is breaking.
