(Lee Thomas Miller/Chris DuBois)

Ok, picture this: I'm standing in the world's longest line at Starbucks
You know the one down on
Yeah right that one
Anyway, I'm standing there
I'm half asleep, of coruse no make-up on
And this guy I've never seen before taps me on the shoulder
I turn around and he says!

Did you know there's 35 Starbucks and 3 million people in Atlanta
The odds of you and me being in the very same line are staggering
Is it coincidence or is there a power bigger than you and me
That made us both crave a three dollar cup of coffee

How lame is that? And that's not the end of it, before I could say anything he goes:

Hey, hey, hey tell me can you feel it
It's filling up the room, there's something going on
See that little speaker in the ceiling
Listen real close it's playing our song
Looks like fate has finally found us
It's got us surrounded
So tell me
What we're gonna do about it

He started singing! there's some strange guy in Starbucks singing to me in line
Everybody's staring I was so embarassed and I'm thinking who is this freak!

I know what you're thinking
You're thinking man this guy's a total freak
You think the case I'm making for destiny is a little weak
Well your shirt is yellow, my shirt is blue, my favorite color's green
Pretty amazing if you know what I mean

Well no, I don't know what that means! What does that mean?

Hey, hey, hey tell me can you feel it
It's filling up the room, there's something going on
See that little speaker in the ceiling
Listen real close it's playing our song
Looks like fate has finally found us
It's got us surrounded
So tell me
What we're gonna do about it

Come on now you have to admit
We couldn't have written a better script
What a great story to tell our kids

Hey, hey, hey tell me can you feel it
It's filling up the room, there's something going on
See that little speaker in the ceiling
Listen real close it's playing our song
Looks like fate has finally found us
It's got us surrounded
So tell me
What we're gonna do about it

True story, I know, I couldn't believe it either
What does he look like? Well I'll put it to you like this:

I've got to go he's gonna be here any minute
No I'm not kidding!
I'm serious, I've got to go, I'll call you later
Okay, bye
