Close your eyes and take a breath
And smell each scent so sweet
Crumpets and biscuits, cookies with cream
Cherry cheescake and chocolate lovers dream
Muffins and scones, covered with frosting
Inhaling hot chocolate can be quite exhausting
Ooh, theres a little on your face..
Coffee cake with crumbs, and gooey cinnamon buns
All these treats and morning glories
Eaten with a friend
While laughing and telling stories
In a little shop on the end of a street
Where pastries call to the passengers:
'Come on, you know you wanna eat me!'
And out of the corner of your eye,
You see every passerby
Give a quick glance as their eyes do a lil dance
And a smile inches across their face
As they see whip cream all over the place -
In your hair, on your fingers, even on your nose
But why does no one tell you, do you suppose?
I guess you'll notice sooner or later I hope
But 'til then its fun to sit, and laugh and joke
On such a carefree summer day
While the children all laugh and they play
And lovers walk arm in arm
They stop at each corner to kiss
Ahh.. life can't get any better than this!
