STARFISH & COFFEE

it was 7:45 we were all in line
2 greet the teacher miss cathleen
first was kevin, then came lucy,
third in line was me
all of us where ordinary compared to cynthia rose
she always stood at the back of the line
a smile beneath her nose
her favorite number was 20 and every single day
if u asked her what she had 4 breakfast
this is what she'd say

starfish and coffee
maple syrup and jam
butterscotch clouds, a tangerine
and a side order of ham
if u set your mind free, baby
maybe you'd understand
starfish and coffee
maple syrup and jam

cynthia wore the prettiest dress
with different color socks
sometimes i wondered if the mates
where in her lunchbox
me and lucy opened it
when cynthia wasn't around
lucy cried, i almost died, u know what we found?




starfish and coffee
maple syrup and jam
butterscotch clouds, a tangerine
and a side order of ham
if u set your mind free, honey
maybe you'd understand
starfish and coffee
maple syrup and jam
starfish and coffeec

ynthia had a happy face, just like the one she'd draw
on every wall in every school
but it's all right, it's 4 a worthy cause
go on, cynthia, keep singin'

starfish and coffee
maple syrup and jam
butterscotch clouds, a tangerine
and a side order of ham
if u set your mind free, baby
maybe you'd understand
starfish and coffee
maple syrup and jam
