Okay, last week I parodied the Sound of Music. It was a spontaneous thing, but apparently, I hit a nerve with the Broadway musical lovers. So, due to requests, today is “West Side Story” Day. I love this musical. The lyrics below should be sung to the tune of “I Feel Pretty”.
If you remember, this song is sung in the scene that takes place in the bridal shop where Maria, Anita and their other friends work, so it would be best if you had several friends or co-workers around you to sing the repeat stuff and harmonies. Anything in parentheses is where you need the extra people singing with you. Anyway, this is dedicated to my love of my morning caffeine. Enjoy!
I feel giddy
Oh, so giddy
The caffeine has made me this way
I am giddy
Only coffee lets me face the day
I feel lively,
Oh, so lively
It’s alarming how lively I feel
And I pity
Those who think decaf coffee is real
Look at the Latte in that Starbucks there (what Starbucks? where?)
What exotic flavor is there today?
Such an enticing name
A little added whipped cream
And I’m ready
And I’m on my way!
(on my way, on my way)
I feel jumpy
Oh, so jumpy
So jittery and jumpy and fine
Toss in a doughnut — or a cruller
And I’ll be flying into work — by nine!
