(CBSDFW.COM) – A group of Texas friends are expressing their grief over the recent sale of Whataburger to a Chicago firm in a what-a-song.

The group from Waco laments the “buttery bittersweet” Whataburger sale in a new video on YouTube.

Among the lyrics:

You went and left me for a guy named Chicago — please — No!!! Yeah, this can’t be a thing… you might be thinking love, but I know it’s a fling.”

The friends ask Whataburger to wake them from this nightmare and warn the business not to change the menu.

Whataburger was founded in Corpus Christi and was family-owned for 69 years.

It’s corporate headquarters is in San Antonio.
