Recorded by many
Lyrics by Marcy Heisler, Music by Zina Goldrich ©2003
Transcribed by T-rev

Capo 2.  Whole-step key change instead of original's half-step.

          G                                 C/G
There's a boy who works at Starbucks who is very inspirational
      Am         D         G             D4   D
He is very inspirational because of many things
       G                 C/G
I come in at 8:11 and he smiles and says "how are you"
        Am                                     Am                   D  D#dim7
When he smiles and says "how are you" I could swear my heart grows wings
     Em7             G11            G7
So today at 8:11 I decided I should meet him
    Cadd2                        F7
I decided I should meet him in a proper formal way
     Em7               G11                   G7
So today at 8:11 as he smiled and said "how are you"
        Cadd2                            Am7              D  D#dim7
I said "fine and my name's Carol" and he softly answered "hey"
      Em                            Em7/D                   Em6/C#  C7   F13
And I told him "my name's Carol and thank you for the extra foam"
       Gadd9                             D7                             Gadd9
And he said his name was Taylor which provides the inspiration for this poem

            G  B7       C          G/B
            Taylor, the latte boy
            Am        G/B  C        D  D#dim7
            Bring me java, bring me joy
            Em Em7/D    Em6/C#     A7
            Taylor, the latte boy
              G/D         G4/D             G4  G  E
            I love him, I love him, I love him

       A                             D/A
So I'd like to get my nerve up and recite my poem musical
         Bm                 E         A                 E4   E
He would like the fact it's musical because he plays guitar
     A                  D/A
So today at 8:11 Taylor told me he was playing
     Bm                              Bm            E  Fdim7
In a band down in the Village in the basement of a bar
       F#m7                             A11            A7
And he smoothly flipped the lever to prepare my double-latte
        Dadd2                       G7
But for me he made it triple and he didn't think I knew
      F#m7                           A11           A7
But I saw him flip the lever and for me he made it triple
      Dadd2                             Bm7             E
And I knew that triple-latte meant that Taylor loved me too
Fdim7   F#m                            F#7/E                   F#m6/D#  D7 G13
I said "What time are you playing? And thank you for the extra skim"
         Aadd9             E7                             Aadd9
He said "Keep the $3.55" because this triple latte was on him

            A  C#7      D          A/C#
            Taylor, the latte boy
            Bm        A/C# D        E  Fdim7
            Bring me java, bring me joy
            F#m F#7/E   F#m6/D#
            Taylor, the latte boy
              A/E         A4/E             A4  A
            I love him, I love him, I love him

        C#4       C#     F#m7
        I used to be the kind of girl
              B4         B           E          /D
        Who'd run when a love rushed toward her
             C#4       C#               F#m7
        'Til finally a voice whispered "Love can be yours
               B4             B           Bm7  E7
        If you step up to the counter and order"

    Dmaj7   D6       A/C#
    So many years my heart has waited
    C#                      C#7           F#m      B7
    Who'd have thought that love could be so caffeinated
    A  C#7      D     B7
    Taylor, the latte boy
      A/E         D6           F+   F#m  B7
    I love him, I love him, I love him
      A/E         D            D/A A
    I love him, I love him, I love him
