The Lyrics

Early one mornin' 'fore the sun coming up
I made a pot of coffee and I drank one cup
I licked the pot clean lest I went berserk
I poured the rest on thermos, and went to work

Poured another cup and I logged my 'pooter on
Needed more that coffee just to get things done
'Fore it was ten I had one litre drunk
My thermos was empty, I needed more of that junk

Soon it was noon, another litre was down
My bladder was aching but my thoughts went around
I went overdrive, I was busy as bee
I thought "Juan Valdez, you're hero to me!"

Got to my work with my trem-oloing hands
I typed like a lightning, which just randomly lands
I broke my keyboard and I broke my mouse -
I thougt to book vacation at the Maxwell House

Late afternoon a British gallon was full
I was bristling energy like a corrida bull
I just ran around, I couldn't have any stop
I got my work ready but it wasn't enough

I climbed in my car and I drove like F1
I headed for dojo, now to have some fun
When I saw the red light, I thought I'd stop now clean
But I still did forty klicks when the lights turned green

I jumped like a bunny, and I ran like the wind
Our sensei, had hard time just to get me pinned
Now the training is hard, it makes you perspirate
But I didn't just sweat, I did percolate

When I came home I told my husband "Oh, please -
Make another pot of that brown bean juice for me"
But I couldn't wait, the brewing was slow -
I took a mouthful beans and I began to chow

Early in evening 'bout a half past nine
I finished another pot, which was just so fine
I thought to ease up and do some channel surf
Without the remote and without hitting turf

Into the bedroom, now my day was done
I said to my husband, "Hey, let's have some fun"
We had it too rough as the the bedplanks cracked
My hubby said me "Ouch! I've hurt my back!"

I lastly got sleep when the clock was four
At eight-o-clock up before the alarm clock roar
I brewed again a pot 'fore I lifted clutch -
Dear readers, do you think that I drink too much?

I want me cremated when my days are done -
You can put me in a coffee pot when I'm gone!
