Starfish and Coffee

Jon and I toured the Dallas World Aquarium on Saturday, and my favorite part was the tank full of different-colored starfish! Aren’t they beautiful? The iPhone camera just doesn’t do them justice. They’ve always fascinated me. Got me hummin’ a little Prince.
It was 7:45, we were all in line to greet the teacher Miss Kathleen
First was Kevin, then came Lucy, third in line was me
All of us were 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 you asked her what she had for breakfast, this is what she’d say

Starfish and coffee , maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds and a tangerine, a side order of ham
If you set your mind free, baby, maybe you’d understand
Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam

Cynthia wore the prettiest dress but different color socks
Sometimes I wondered if the mates were in her lunchbox
Me and Lucy opened it when Cynthia wasn’t around
Lucy cried, I almost died, you know what we found

Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds and a tangerine, a side order of ham
If you set your mind free, baby, maybe you’d understand
Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam

Cynthia had a happy face, just like the one she draws
On every wall, in every school, but it’s alright, it’s 4 a worthy cause
Go on, Cynthia!
Keep sayin’…

Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds and a tangerine, a side order of ham
If you set your mind free, baby, maybe you’d understand
Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
