Dear John some day there's going to come a river
Wash all this poor shit away
Rock on with the power of the Ganges
Destroy a Starbucks today

When progress is brewing along with corporate coffee stewing
Then hang on to your hat

Fiction swapped for franchise paperback for surprise
At the choice beyond the mat

We need someone to save us
Mother Nature help us now

Dear John some day there's going to come a river
Wash all this poor shit away
Rock on with the power of the Ganges
Destroy a Starbucks today

Philistines and caffeine freaks
Buy your fix on any street
So why do you make it mine

We shall invoke a mighty rage to wash away
This west end place
Now let the water rise

We need someone to save us
Mother Nature help us now

Dear John some day there's going to come a river
Wash all this poor shit away
Rock on with the power of the Ganges
Destroy a Starbucks today

Undress yourself, immerse yourself
Come in yeah the water's fine
Undress yourself, immerse yourself
Come in yeah the water's fine

Dear John some day there's going to come a river
Wash all this poor shit away
Rock on with the power of the Ganges
Destroy a Starbucks today

... and tomorrow McDonald's.
