The Lyrics

A plea from a man for his regular coffee........And the woman telling why she likes her coffee.
Got up this morning knowing I am behind,
Get to my coffee, shuffle then to my rhyme.

(Refrain)
No coffee grounds
No, no, no, no, no,ooh ooh.
I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore,
No coffee grounds.

You went and got a whiff of fancy blends
I'm telling you it's way too much to spend.

No coffee grounds
No, no, no, no, no,ooh ooh,
I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore,
No coffee grounds.

(Bridge)
Cafe Francais, whoosh!
Cafe Francais, whoosh!
Cafe Francais, whoosh!
It wakes me u-u-u-u-p.

What happened to the brew that used to flow?
You put my grinds out in the garbage I know.

No coffee grounds
No, no, no, no, no,ooh ooh,
I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore,
No coffee grounds.

You're always talkin' crazy cafe lites,
One of these days you'll wake up in the night.

No coffee grounds
No, no, no, no, no,ooh ooh
I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore,
No coffee grounds.

Cafe Francais, whoosh!
Cafe Francais, whoosh!
Cafe Francais, whoosh!
It wakes me u-u-u-u-p.

You're looking good, you think you've way too much class.
One of these days you'll fall and break your @$$.

No coffee grounds,
No no, no no, no no, no no, no, no,ooh ooh.
I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore,
No coffee grounds.

It's got me shaking, got me running all day,
But got me crawling up to sip every day.

No coffee grounds
No, no, no, no, no,ooh ooh
I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore,
No coffee grounds, grounds, grounds, grounds, grounds.

I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore,
No coffee grounds.

I'm a train wreck without my coffee. Good Job!

Very well done and original. Wonder who the jerk was that paced this at a 2? If you don't laugh and you don't like the parody you mark this in the how funny and overall rating which in your opinion could be a 2 but the pacing is definately at least a 4.5. I wish these people would learn how to vote. I liked it Pat and it is something most of us could relate to. :)

Yea, Guy. I wish people would learn how to vote. They ruin more parodies that way.
Peregrin - September 24, 2003 - Report this comment
Well Adagio, I have helped to re-dress that anomaly a little bit, this was excellent.

You're right, adagio. Seems like I have a habit of commenting and then forgetting to vote. I voted now. :)

Thank you, Serafina.

Talk about differences in marriage...Mari likes decaf! Horrors!
Johnny D - August 02, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) My wife drinks decaf ..... as for me, my own cup o'decaf is nothin' a No-Doz tablet can't fix! Good job, Pat.
Adagio - August 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Rick and Johnny!

Johnny...but, but, but...you're missing the point of having either decaf or regular or whatever...let's you settle into the day.
Jeff Reuben - August 02, 2004 - Report this comment
This was excellent, and I can certainly relate. One minor suggestion...I would suggest making variations on the "I'll smell brew once more afore I'd bet it was gore" line instead of repeating it throughout the song...just a way to add a bit more variety. That said, I loved it!
Adagio - August 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Jeff...point noted.
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - August 02, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) I agree that it was a tad repetitive, but well written all the same. Now bend over and coffee! (mandatory groaner) 5-4-4
Adagio - August 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Ok Luke...(groan) thanks...won't get that one done til they come up with a test that doesn't resemble torture!
The Invincible - August 03, 2004 - Report this comment
This parody was strangely amusing. I'd probably be laughing a lot harder than I am now if I knew what the original song sounds like. Pick yourself up with some fives.
... - August 03, 2004 - Report this comment
I've come back to restore my 5-5-5 vote.

Thanks,The Invincible and Ellipsis. Invincible, I could have sworn that I put a midi in there...sorry...:/ The 5's did pick me up. :D

This isn't my favourite of yours by a long chalk, adagio - I don't mean that in a nasty way, it's not a bad parody, just not as good as most.
Meriadoc - August 05, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) I swear as I read it this go round, I could actually smell the coffee... :-)
