Will I play the chain-goer? no, never, no more

Song came on and couldn’t help thinking it could be adopted to coffee chain-goer.

To the tune of The Wild Rover. About a boy who will never play the chain-goer again.

And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the chain-goer
No, never, no more

I’ve been chain-goer for many the years
And I’ve spent all my money on frappichinos from fear
That going to an independent they’ll ask me for more
But the truth is it’s better and they care for us all.

And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the chain-goer
No, never, no more

I went into a starbucks I used to frequent
And I asked the barista how my money was spent
Does it help locals services? she answered me “Nay,
our franchise is offshore but we’ll take your custom anyway”

And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the chain-goer
No, never, no more

I took from my pocket, ten sovereigns bright
And I remembered the independent down the road on the right
The cafe had espressos, flat whites and rest
With happier baristas that made my beverage the best

And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the chain-goer
No, never, no more

And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the chain-goer
No, never, no more

I go to home my parents, confessed what I’d done
And I asked to pardon their prodigal son
And when they caressed me as oft times before
Now I will never play the chain-goer no more

And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the chain-goer
No, never, no more

And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the chain-goer
No, never, no more
