Follow along with the lyrics here:
Read the Pioneer today, oh boy.
About a coffee girl that made lattes.
And tho the cookies weren’t so bad,
Well, she just had to run it all. (pause)
I saw the writing on the wall.
She asked Mike to sweep the floor,
She didn’t notice that her mind had changed.
A couple of people stood and waited,
They’d seen her face before,
Nobody was really sure if she was just awake or bored… … … …
Watched the toaster today, oh boy,
An English muffin had just kicked my butt.
The patron just shook his head,
But I just had to cook,
Having seen that look,
I’d love to feed…..your…..face.
Woke up, crawled out of bed,
Jumped in the shower to wet my head.
Ran downstairs, drank 3 cups,
Looking up…I noticed it was 5.
Found the oven, grabbed some fat,
Made some muffins in seconds flat.
Found my way to the frig and got some milk,
Customer spoke and I had a déjá vu
aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh
Read the Enterprise today, oh boy,
Four thousand homes in Tejon Ranch, my dear.
Though the Cantina is rather small
If I could count them all,
That’s how many folks it takes to fill the Gallery hall,
I ‘d love to bring… … … some… … …cul….ture … … …
