COFFEE IN A BOX
Well it was one of them days just before Christmas you know just how they go
The creep right up and they sneak right in on you
I know that I should be shopping, cause that's just what we do But this year I am trying something new....
I'm gonna stop by the deli get my coffee in a box Cruise up the coast highway
And how the fuck did it come to be
They called a shopping centre 'Garden City'
Cause this year we're gonna kick it old school gonna roll up the coast highway
Yeah this year we're gonna kick it old school get my coffee at an IGA
Yeah this year when gonna kick it old school, ya know hey come what may
This year we're gonna kick it old school, up the coast highway...just you and me...
Cause it was one of them days just before Christmas the sun was shinning bright
One of them days and shopping just didn't feel right You got the salt spray on your windscreen Warm sun on your face The crackle of the radio sets your pace….

So I'm gonna stop by the deli get my coffee in a box Cruise up the coast highway
And how the fuck did it come to be
They called a shopping centre 'Garden City'
Cause this year we're gonna kick it old school gonna roll up the coast highway Yeah this year we're gonna kick it old school get my coffee at an IGA
Yeah this year when gonna kick it old school, ya know hey come what may
Yeah this year we're gonna kick it old school, up the coast highway...just you and me…….(Up the coast highway… Just you and me ….Up the coast highway…..The coast highway)
