Ode to the Publix Cafe Lady

(To the tune of Adam Sandler's Lunch Lady Land)

Open up at 6 a.m.
Got on my sage green polo
Served croquetas de jamon
Con un poco de amor
Got no clue why we sell gallon jugs of milk
Just know everything's doing fine
Down here at the Publix Cafe stand

Yes I wear this net on my head
Porque food safety standards apply
I wear these clear disposable gloves
It's all for your peace of mind
You want your morning joe and tostada
But there's no reason to bark
Everybody gets their comida
Down here at the Publix Cafe stand

Cafe con leche, cafe con leche, cafe con leche, cafe con leche
fruit salad, fruit salad, fruit salad, fruit salad
Cafe con leche, cafe con leche
Fruit salad, fruit salad
Pan Cubano
Pastelito, past', pastelito
Pastelito, past', pastelito
Pastelito, past', pastelito
Pastelito, past', pastelito
