The Lyrics

Once again, the best-known version is by Eric Clapton.
If you're winking out, got to get on about, caffeine.
If you're nodding off, take a drink, don't you scoff, caffeine.
Look alive, look alive, look alive... caffeine.

Got to get right up, got to down you a cup, caffeine.
Get Colombian blend, so your waking won't end, caffeine.
Look alive, look alive, look alive... caffeine.

Be awake and wired, don't you get yourself fired, caffeine.
Be awake all night, drink tomorrow, all right, caffeine.
Look alive, look alive, look alive... caffeine.
Look alive, look alive, look alive... caffeine.
Look alive, look alive, look alive... caffeine.

The richest most aromatic kind .... 4-5-5

I've heard the original a few times, long ago when it was a big hit on the radio; still, my memory of the pacing isn't perfect, so I gave you the benefit of the doubt there. Funny choice of subject, too...this is the perfect comeback to popular-music haters who complain about lyrics glorifying drugs! Triple 5's for sure...

I've actually heard a song entitled "St. Caffiene", which recites, "Cola nut or coffee bean, I pray to you , Saint Caffiene".

Thanks to everyone for voting to make me "one of the coffee achievers!"

Great parody, Mike! I think this is a real improvement over the original. Sometimes I feel sleepy in the morning and need to have some coffee to wake myself up. Anyway, 5-5-5; and like Melhi said, it's good to the last drop. :)
