The Lyrics

nothing worse than a donut shop telling you there is a 20 minute time limit..
you slip it past your gum you chew it really fast
and now it tastes like something who's "best by" date has passed
and you wouldn't be complaining if the proces were so low
but six bucks for a coffee, and they kick you out, just go

I've been eating here for years drinking coffee all the time
and now they're trying to sell some beers.
to someone else, they won't be mine
I've been eating here for years and the food was always fine
now it tastes like rotting steers
and I've had enough this time...

I've been eating off the menu since I was seventeen
in all the time I've come here, I have never seen it clean
and the food that comes out steaming is the crap we get to eat
I've barfed so quick I didn't have the time to move my feet

I've been eating here for years drinking coffee all the time
and now they're trying to sell some beers.
to someone else, they won't be mine
I've been eating here for years and the food was always fine
now it tastes like rotting steers
and I've had enough this time...

I spend a lot of money, and I always added tips
but the crap they brought out this time
tastes like someone took a Sh*t
and I couldn't even stand it as I plugged up my poor nose
I know of only one word, and this is really "gross"

I've been eating here for years drinking coffee all the time
and now they're trying to sell some beers.
to someone else, they won't be mine
I've been eating here for years and the food was always fine
now it tastes like rotting steers
and I've had enough this time...
