Say lady, could you kindly place
About five more tablespoons of sugar in the remaining space
Between the foam and the lid
Of my little itty bitty cup of energizing liquid?

Addicted, why yes, I'd say for sure
All I know is, it's seven o' clock again and I'm always running out of time
But I'm burning my tongue just to find some peace of
Mind you, I've barely acclimated to the bitterness
But I'm an over-sweetened coffee-sipping repetitive ceaseless mess

Oh, and perhaps there's toilet paper attached to my feet again
and shoot I left my brain at home didn't I?
And maybe my toothbrush is stuck in my hair and this morning,
Did I forget to put on underwear? Well who cares?
Certainly not me.

When it gets down to it, well I rarely do.
Sitting around letting my head turn into goo, over you
Can I drink this through my nose?
Hey, something smells like redundancy to me
Have I ever even accomplished anything?

Oh perhaps I haven't thought sane thoughts in days
But I don't know what day it is anyway
And maybe that burner's been on for quite a while
But I've been sitting watching strangers forget how to smile.
Are you forgetting how to smile? Well it'll happen again tomorrow.

Ooh, it'll happen again tomorrow
Are you forgetting how to smile?
