lyrics

I woke up this morning, made up my bed
All these lovely dreams I had were bubblin' in my head
I rolled up to the office, picked up my paycheck
Everything was goin' swell, I figured, what the heck?

I had like two cups of coffee
I had like two cups of coffee
I had like two cups of coffee
Now I'm jittering around
And everybody thinks that I'm a nut
This is so entertaining
I think I'm gonna throw up

I don't normally drink, I stay clear of all caffeine
Gets in your brain, just like cocaine, disintegrates your spleen
My heart already beats too fast, I think it might explode
I saw a thing on CNN, and all the studies showed

If you have two cups of coffee
If you have two cups of coffee
If you have two cups of coffee
They said it makes you addicted
They said it works like a drug
It will make you feel happy
And then you'll wanna throw up

I had like two cups of coffee
I had like two cups of coffee
I had like seven cups of coffee
It's just my brains feel on fire
It's PCP in a cup
I blame peer pressure for my failures,
So thanks a lot, Jed, now I'm gonna go throw up
