I want to own a coffee shop

A little ditty I wrote. I hope you like it. Lyrics:

From years of American Entertainment
Telling me what to think
I've developed quite a fascination with
The art of the caffinated drink
I don't even like coffee
I think it tastes like shit
But if I had it all my way
I would have a job making it

I want to own a coffee shop
Taking in orders from the businessmen and that
Early each morning open up
Making sure people have a nice and lively day

And yes, I'd decorate it nicely
Put some pictures on the wall
Maybe I'd sell some stuff for artists
But I wouldn't sell it all
My patronage consisting fairly
Of all people, young and old
But I think I would let in mostly
Those who owned their weight in gold

I want to own a coffee shop
Taking in orders from the indie kids and that
I'd have a really cutsey name
Like "Coffeeholic" or "The Java Juice" or "Meh."
I'd be each customer's best friend
Unless they pissed me off in which case they'd be out
I'd have a special every day
For holidays that no-one's ever heard about

Mocha, Latte, Cappuccino
Espresso Americano
It's all Greek to me
I would learn a thousand versions
If it gave me just a chance to
Sell some hot coffee

I want to own a coffee shop
Taking in orders from the pensioners perhaps
I'd offer wireless access
To the Internet, if you're a regular
My friends would come around to chill
They'd get free coffee...
...Maybe... I'm not sure
I'd only offer fairtrade stuff
Just to make sure the hippies walk in through the door

I want to own a coffee shop
It's been my dream for many years oh yes it has
I'd probably fail but oh who cares
If I don't try then I will never have a chance.

You really don't come across songs with lyrics on NG. That's why I love this song, the song itself sounds great, and the vocals add so much to it.
Great job with this, keep it up!
PS: Check out my latest song " Weekend Has Come"
and while your there check out "Maybe"

Thank you very much =) I appreciate that. I'll check out your stuff too!

it's good...you're good

Why can't their be more songs on the audio portal like this one?!? I know, I know, he wasn't that good of a singer. But that's what makes this site so speacial! It spotlights us, the underdogs of music. Those who aren't famous, but love to sing!

And as for this particular song, it was very good. You can sing nice but is nothing compared to the pro's. But of coarse we never expected anything proffesional.

Also, you're accent really makes the song shine to me.
Keep singing, man!

Dan-Plus-Add responds:

Thanks Davoo, very kind of you. A fair and honest review... I'm glad you liked it :)
