The Lyrics

Apparently, there are now some Starbucks in the Land of the Forbidden Frappuccino, Utah (by doctrine, Mormons aren't allowed to drink coffee). I, however, have yet to find one...
Gotta find the cure for my caffeine withdrawal
Gotta find a Starbucks in Utah
My favorite's always been skinny latte tall
Why stop me from my craving 'cause you think I'm flawed?

When every little thing is sanctioned by the Mormon Church
Then the belief that sinners drink coffee will prolong your search

Folks that think they are obeying divine law
Keep a Starbucks coffee shop from coming to Utah
Mixing beans with filtered water makes their skin just crawl
And the thought of drinking it they find just appalling

(It's) A mirage if you saw
Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah

Started out this morning with my patience small
I wish they'd open up a Starbucks and get on the ball
But the elders and the sisters may just start a brawl
If they knew there's a flippin' Starbucks in Utah

No kiosk in the mall
Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah

Doesn't look like there any Starbucks in this town
We could make it to Nevada 'for the sun goes down

Folks that think they are obeying divine law
Keep a Starbucks coffee shop from coming to Utah
Mixing beans with filtered water makes their skin just crawl
And the thought of drinking it they find just appalling

Venti, Grande, or Tall
Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah
There's no Starbucks in Utah

I didn't know that and it (and your parody) are quite funny...I wonder if the elders would relent if Starbucks UT agreed to sell only decaf. products...(Starwuss) ...and what about Coca Cola, and other caffeinated softies?

That's like a bagel factory in Cairo or cheeseburgers at a bar Mitzvah.
