A Coffee Dedication

October 26th, 2009

For 133316103_c13f54b1ecCarrieAnn and Laurel and all my coffee loving friends, a song all about our favorite drink: The Java Jive.  Otherwise known as: The Song that Got Me Hooked on SPEBSQSA (the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America – Omg! Dad would be ecstatic if he knew I still remembered that! Also, it’s now known as the BHS, or Barbershop Harmony Society.  Lame.) music.

This song has been stuck in my head since sometime last night.  I started singing it in the shower this morning and keep belting out occasional bursts.  It made me think of you.  I love you guys.  Fer realz.

Java Jive
Manhattan Transfer

I love coffee, I love tea,
I love the Java Jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me,
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

I love java sweet and hot,
Whoops, Mister Moto, I’m a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot, and I’ll pour me a shot,
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Oh slip me a slug from the wonderful mug
and I’ll cut a rug ’til I’m snug in a jug
A slice of onion and a raw one,
Draw one!
Waiter, waiter, percolator!

I love coffee, I love tea,
I love the Java Jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me,
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Boston beans (soy beans)
I said the little itty-bitty green bean
(cabbage n’ greens)
You know that I’m not keen about a bean,
unless it is a chili chili bean! (Talk it, boy!)

I love java sweet and hot,
Whoops, Mister Moto, I’m a coffee pot (yeah)
You shoot me the pot, and I’ll pour me a shot,
A cup, a cup, a cup, ‘an dat zat bootle!

Blow me a slug from that wonderful mug
And I’ll cut a rug that’s snug in a jug
Drop a nickel in my pot – Joe
Takin’ it slow
Waiter, waiter percolator

I love coffee, I love tea,
I love the Java Jive an’ it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup – BOY!

    @thepinkpoppet.wordpress.com/ Lol. Growing up, we weren’t allowed to speak to Mom before her first cup of coffee. She didn’t comprehend much before her first cup of coffee. Lol.
