about

Coffee - without it, the world would devolve into chaos. These noble beans save us daily and yet what thanks to they get?

Written for FAWM 2005 - we've been playing it live ever since. This the full "jam" extended version.

lyrics

First thing you burn them
While spinning them round
Next you break them
Until they are ground
Then you boil them
Until they are drowned

Won't anyone think of the beans
Won't anyone think of the beans

Their magic is strong
Especially when black
They can rouse the dead
Bring the tired back
Their smell alone
Can get you out of the sack

Won't anyone think of the beans
Won't anyone think of the beans

Grind without mercy
And them throw them away
They've done their job
They've save the day
Their garbage can rest
Is all of their pay

Won't anyone think of the beans
Won't anyone think of the beans

So here's to the wizards
Of Nature's delight
They can keep you going
All through the night
Two sips in time
And the world is alright

Won't anyone think of the beans
Won't anyone think of the beans
