Just browsing around trying to find a coffee song I found this one. I like it, though I hadn’t heard it before. It’s about coffee, but only mentions coffee and coffee pot a couple of times in the lyrics.

***

“Black Caffeine”, by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, can be found on their 2013 album, “Old Yellow Moon”. It was written by Hank DeVito and Donivan Cowart and is on the “Nonesuch” label.

I like it black, just black as night
It keeps me up, it keeps me tight
It don’t matter the size of the cup
Just as long as you fill it up
With black caffeine
Keeps me lean
You can hear me scream
Give me black caffeine
Oh I’ve got a monkey sittin on my back
How wouldn’t you know he likes it black?
Don’t need no cream, no nicotine
All that monkey need is the black caffeine
More black caffeine
It keeps me lean
You can hear him scream
Give me black caffeine
Give me black caffeine
I’m sellin the body, I’m soundin mine
Until it comes to my coffee time
Don’t stand in my way, don’t hold me back
Just keep me high and keep it black
Good black caffeine
It keeps me lean
You can hear me scream
Give me black caffeine
The devil sin, I want your soul
I want your silver, I need your gold
Well you can have anything I’ve got
Don’t let him in my coffee pot
Good black caffeine
It keeps me lean
Can you hear me scream?
Give me black caffeine
More black caffeine
It keeps me lean
Can you hear me scream?
More black caffeine
More black caffeine
Yea, black caffeine

And here’s a really funny song I found from some viral video thing by Dustin & Genevieve. It pretty much mentions some of the prompt words, too.  I couldn’t find out how to get the actual video on here, but have a look and get a laugh! Lyrics are on the video 🙂
