What if you took the long way down
To your favorite cafe on the east side of town
And you get stuck at the light
So you turn down a side street
That you couldn't drive down
Cause it's a Saturday swap meet

Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la
Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la, oooh

So you get out of your car
And you walk through the crowd
You bargain for a teapot
In the shape of an owl
So you walk and you walk
And you walk to the coffee shop

Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la
Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la, oooh

If you're lonely and shy
But you take the empty seat next to the cute guy

What if he smiled when you asked for the time?
Your pen wouldn't write so he said take mine
When your coffee got cold, he bought you another
You didn't know it yet, but you were meant for each other

Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la
Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la, oooh

What if you talked til it was time to go?
He said see you around and you said who knows?
But you knew in your heart that you'd see him again
After walking down a side street coming from a new direction

Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la
Oo la la, oo la la, oo la la, la la, oooh
