“Blue State” — an ode

latte lana

to the tune of Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans”

Blue state, fair trade
Came in from the cold you know you made my mouth burn
It was all “go green,” for sure
Milk so fresh to death & hot as ch-chaider
They play sorta punk rock, a little bit of hip hop
But that girl looks better in my favorite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that parfait from December, oh baby!

I will love you but I hate this line
I must wait a million years
Promise you’ll remember that drink’s mine
Baby can you make it with soy?
Tip you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you but I hate this line

York Street, gangster
Said you need a key for the bathroom door
I was like: “no, please, grilled cheese,”
We just need some coffee we can make it all work
Yea they’re open Sunday, said I’ll see you Monday
I stayed up waitin’, anticipatin’ and pacin’ but Splenda
No more
“Compost it or bust” that was the last I heard

I will love you but I hate this line
I must wait a million years
Promise you’ll remember that drink’s mine
Baby can you make it with soy?
Tip you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you but I hate this line

You close late every night
And baby that’s alright
I told you that no matter what you did I’d still buy a Chai
Cause Ima blue or die
Before I order Thai
ABP, at least you tried.
But when I walked out that door, a piece of me died
I told you skim for sure-but that’s not what you had in mind
I just want it like before
I ordered it right
Then you took it from me and stole my spot in line
I just need to remember…

I will love you but I hate this line
I would wait a million years
Promise you’ll remember that drink’s mine
Baby can you make it with soy?
Tip you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you but I hate this line
