Listen to me boys and girls

don't you ever get lost in Cafe World

cause you'll be fruity when you do

it's worse than being caged in a zoo

You'll become a vegetable or so it seems

till a family member hears your screams

Get off my laptop I've got food coming off in three

and while you're up fix me something to eat

Bring me a drink, I'm as thirsty as I can be

and hurry the heck up, I've got goals to complete.

So, have you seen my girlfriend, Earl?

Not since she got lost in Cafe World

Can we rescue her, I said with a shout

I don't think there's a way we can get her out

How can she live in that little screen

while the real world twirls around her she's living in a dream

Why I've never ate a quarter of the food they fix there

I'm now as skinny as a rail, I was as fat as a bear.

She said she needs to go on a diet, Earl

I told her that was easy, let me play her Cafe World

Pretend that you don't know how to cook

And in a month or two we'll see how you look

Cause look at me honey, I'm a wasting away

Not now baby, I've got this game to play

I don't ever think that she'll ever get done

Four more goals crept up and there must be a ton

Wouldn't play it anyway, I think that I'll pass

Gotta find some real food before I lose my . . .

So, have you seen my girlfriend, Earl?
