Taylor, the Latte Boy - Kristin Chenoweth



There's a boy who works at Starbucks
Who is very inspirational
He is very inspirational because of many things

I come in at 8:11
And he smiles and says: "How are you?"
When he smiles and says: "How are you?"
I could swear my heart grows wings!

So today at 8:11
I decided I should meet him
I decided I should meet him
In a proper formal way

So today at 8:11
When he smiled and said: "How are you?"
I said: "Fine, and my name’s Kristin, "
And he softly answered: "Hey."


And I said "My name’s Kristin
And thank you for the extra foam..."
And he said his name was Taylor
Which provides the inspiration for this poem:

Taylor, the latte boy
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him


So I’d like to get my nerve up
To recite my poem musical
He would like the fact it’s musical
Because he plays guitar


So today at 8:11
Taylor told me he was playing
In a band down in the village
In the basement of a bar


And I saw him flip the lever
To prepare my double-latte
But for me he made it triple!
(And he didn’t think I knew)


But I saw him flip the lever
And for me he made it triple
And I knew that triple-latte meant
That Taylor loved me, too!

I said: "What time are you playing?
And thank you for the extra skim..."
He said: "Keep the $3.55, "
Because this triple latte was on him

Taylor, the latte boy
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him


I used to be the kind of girl
Who’d run when love rushed toward her
'Til finally a voice whispered: "Love can be yours
If you step up to the counter and order, "

Taylor, the latte boy
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him
So many years my heart has waited
Who’d have thought that love
Could be so caffeinated?

Taylor, the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him, I love him!
