It was a caf? it was a caf on the west side
It was a caf? on
It was a caf? on the west side, midtown
It was a caf? on the west side, midtown

Said they had the best cap of cappucino around
So i stepped in, and i ordered a cup
Someone grabbed me by my throat and said, "shut the fuck up!"
And i did, pronto, quick fast
How much longer would the torture last?
In the wrong place, at the wrong time
It was a drug sale, i could feel from behind

Death, it was gettin' closer, right behind my back
Ready to attack
I got shot in a shoot out, and then i died
I could feel it, i was on the other side
In between lives, i'm so confused
What do i do, oh, what do i do?
But was it really time for me to go?

Why, oh why did i need cappucino?
Why, oh why?
Why, oh why did i need cappucino?
Why, oh why?
Why, oh why did i need cappucino?

Why, oh why did i need cappucino?
But then i calmed down, i spotted some friends
That i knew in a past life, way back when
A couple had died in a drug world
And this one guy died fightin' over his girl
Another died drivin' while intoxicated
Why do people make livin' so complicated?
But then i saw a girl, her name was mary

Introduced to drugs by her boyfriend harry
He sold crack to the kids on the uptown corners
A social worker named hannah smith tried to warn her
But she wouldn't listen, no one listens
I saw the light, i awakened, it was a dream
Man oh man, you shoulda heard me scream
So glad to be given - my life back
So good to be livin' - or is dead better?

I didn't have to run from the bullets or drugs
And i didn't have to run from the murderers or thugs
I didn't have to worry about fallin' from a plane
But at this caf? was death still callin' my name?
Or did this caf? even exist?
And was my name just another on the death list?
I knew it couldn't happen, even though
On the bottom of my shirt was a spot of cappucino
Cappucino, cappucino

Bust it, to some of you that really don't know
I break it down to you, the word 'cappucino'
It's somewhat like coffee, then again not quite
It's creamy and smooth, and it goes down light
They charge you 3 dollars, you ask is it worth it?
But when you start drinkin' shit, it'd be workin'
I'm hooked, well, i was, 'cause, yo, it's the best
But if every time i drink i voyage through death
I leave it alone and just stick to tea
Cappucino was fly, but too fly for me

Why, oh why did i need cappucino?
Cappucino
Why, oh why did i need cappucino?
Cappucino

Why, oh why? why, oh why?
Why, oh why did i need cappucino?
Cappucino, cappucino
Cappucino, cappucino

It was a caf? on the west side
It was a caf? on the west
It was a caf? on the west side
It was a caf? on the west
Cappucino
