The Lyrics

Percolator, oh could you help my coffee boil
See the number on the clock now is 7:30
It's early in the day so I hope you'll brew away
I got my half and half and my cup's not dirty

Chorus:
Isn't that the way the morning goes?
Well let me plug you in
And I'll get the Equal if I can find it
So I can drink just a heavenly cup of Jo
Caffeine is great you know
I need it every day
I'll fill my thermos up and tote it off with me
then I won't be a flake
and maybe I'll stay awake

Percolator, oh could you help my coffee brew
I love the aroma you're sending to me
The sleep is in my eyes
you know it happens when I rise
I think about the French roast I know will save me

Repeat Chorus

Percolator, will you're just plugged into the wall
You see there's no one here
But you for me now to talk to
Thank you for your time
Now I'm awake and feeling fine
Hope you keep your shine

Repeat Chorus
