Coffee in a Carboard Cup (From "And the World Goes 'Round") Lyrics

 

(Karaoke Version Teaching Vocal) - Musical Creations Studio Musicians (Karaoke)

 

The trouble with the world today, it seems to me,

Is coffee in a cardboard cup.

The trouble with the affluent society

Is coffee in a cardboard cup.

No one's ever casual and nonchalant,

No one waits a minute in a restaurant,

No one wants a waitress passing pleasantries

Like "How're you, Miss?"

"How're you, Sir?"

"May I take your order please?"

The trouble with the world today is plain to see,

Is everything is hurry up.

It's rush it through, and don't be slow,

And BLT on rye to go,

 

Coffee in a cardboard cup.

The trouble with the helter-skelter life we lead

Is coffee in a cardboard cup.

 

The trouble, the psychologists have all agreed,

 

Is coffee in a cardboard cup.

Tell me, what could possibly be drearier

Than seafood from the Belnord cafeteria?

Seems to me a gentleman would much prefer

"Afternoon!"

"How've you been?"

"Would you like the special, sir?"

The trouble with the world today is plain to see,

Is everything is hurry up.

There's ready-wear, and instant tea,

And minute rice, and my oh me,

There's coffee (I think she said)

Coffee (I know she said)

Coffee in a cardboard cup.

The trouble with the world today, beyond a doubt,

Is coffee in a cardboard cup.

 

The trouble is the way we like to take things out,

Like coffee in a cardboard cup.

No one knows the meaning of utopia

 

Is dining at the corner cornucopia,

 

Seems to me we wouldn't be such nervous wrecks

With "Hello, there!"

"Be right back!"

"Would you care for separate checks?"

 

The trouble with the world today is plain to see,

Is everything is hurry up.

It's all become looney tunes

With sugar packs and plastic spoons

And coffee Coffee

Coffee

Coffee

Coffee

Coffee

Coffee

Coffee

 

Coffee in a cardboard cup.
