It was 7:45, we were all n line 2 greet the teacher Miss Cathleen
1st was Kevin, then came Lucy, 3rd n line was me
All of us where ordinary compared 2 Cynthia Rose
She always stood at the back of the line, a smile beneath her nose
Her favorite number was 20 and every single day
If U asked her what she had 4 breakfast, this is what she'd say

Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds and a tangerine and a side order of ham
If U set ur mind free, baby, maybe U'd understand
Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam

Cynthia wore the prettiest dress but different color socks
Sometimes I wondered if the mates where n her lunch box
Me and Lucy opened it when Cynthia wadn't around (Oh-ooh-oh)
Lucy cried, I almost died, U know what we found (Oh-ooh-oh)

Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine and a side order of ham
If U set ur mind free, baby, maybe U'd understand
Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
Oh, ooh
Starfish and coffee

Cynthia had a happy face just like the 1 she'd draw
On every wall n every school, but it's alright, it's 4 a worthy cause
Go on Cynthia

And keep sayin' starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine, a side order of ham
If U set ur mind free, baby, maybe U'd understand
Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam
Oh, mmm (La la la...)
Oh, ooh (La la la...)
Oh, ooh (La la la...) (Starfish and coffee is love 4 the soul)
Oh, ooh (La la la...) (Starfish and coffee is love 4 the soul)
La la la la la
