He had a macchiato instead of a latte
To kick start the day before he did karate
Wearing a badge saying 'My name is Marty'
That may as well say 'Don't invite me to parties'
And Starbucks means the world to him
Where the milk is semi-skimmed
Caramel ice cold frappe
He's in Starbucks every day

But one rainy summer in mid-afternoon
He was eating the froth with a plastic spoon
Reading the leaflet about bean roasting
Quizzing himself about what he knew most in
When he looked down and then looked up
She was drinking from his coffee cup
Bright orange hair, eyes like a goth
She looked right at him but he had froth on his chin

She threw his cup against the wall
Shouting 'The bigger they are, the harder they fall'
He knew then that he loved that girl
Cause the bigger her heart the harder he fell for her

She looked so mischievous like the girl in the Beano
Hated capitalism and capuccino
He listened hard as she gave him a lecture
Saying some stuff that he just didn't expect her to
That the smaller people that you meet
Can't set up a coffee shop in the street
Cause the big boys won't let small boys play
But you still drink Starbucks every day

She threw his cup against the wall
Shouting 'The bigger they are, the harder they fall'
And he knew then that he loved that girl
Cause the bigger her heart the harder he fell for her

He'd not been this happy since holy communion
They held hands and set up their own trade union
She cried with joy and he said 'What's the catch?'
And she smashed a plate and said 'Direct action'.
He'd fallen in love at first sight
But something didn't feel quite right
The smile he had started to fade
It didn't feel like a fair trade to him

She threw his cup against the wall
Shouting 'The bigger they are, the harder they fall'
He knew then that he loved that girl
Cause the bigger her heart the harder he fell

He said 'Let's get married'
She said 'Don't tie me down'
'I'm just a breeze blowing the under the ground'
He said 'But baby I love you'
She said 'What does that mean? Love's just a cog in the corporate machine. I'm a symbol of something that's just out of reach, I'm something that you are not something you teach. I'm wild, untameable, I need no rest. And the love that I have I save for protest'
And deep in his heart he knew that she was right
But that day in May he learned how to fight
He gave up the lattes, kicked out karate
Devoted himself to every cause in the world
Fighting banks, corporations in all of the nations
But he always remembered that magical girl

Who threw his cup against the wall
Shouting 'The bigger they are, the harder they fall'
He knew then that he loved that girl
Cause the bigger her heart the harder he fell for her
