"Free Coffee Town" as written by and Benjamin Scott/reynolds Folds....
Called in sick one day
Stepped out my front door
Squinted up at the sky
And strapped on my backpack
Got into a band
And when I returned I had
Ex-wives and children,
Boxes of photographs

And they gave me some food
And they didn't charge me
And they gave me some coffee
And they didn't charge me

And when I was broke I needed it more
But now that I'm rich, they give me coffee

Eating an ice-cream cone
Texting with my thumbs
The state of the asshole
Who pulled into my lane
Life could be longer than it's cracked up to be
You get new cells every seven years
I feel seven today;
It's a good day to die again

And they gave me some food
And they didn't charge me
And they gave me some coffee
And they didn't charge me

And when I was broke I needed it more
But now that I'm rich, they give me coffee

    General CommentWritten by Jared Reynold about his free coffee utopia. It is (according to Ben) as simple as that. Catchy though.

    General CommentThis is a lot like Ben's other coffee song - "And when I was broke I needed it more but now that I'm rich, they give me free coffee"
    In a concert I went to he said that Starbucks gives him free coffee all the time and he thought it was funny because he now obviously has way more than enough money to pay for it. This guy is so down to Earth.
