The Lyrics

What is that fine smell here?
Something's being brewed
That's quite without peer
Somebody wants it black or white
We're gonna have some coffee
It's brewing tonight

Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling

Coffee's hot... that's good
Mocha, latte, espresso
You're in the mood
People are starting
To climb the walls
Ooh, it looks like caffeine's
Appeal will never pall

Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling

Everybody starts to lose control
When the coffee's brewed right
If you see somebody without a mug
Don't get uptight
The only thing we wanna do tonight
Is go round and round
And turn upside down
Come on, let's get down

Milk or sugar, it's your choice
Drink it black
Come on and make some noise
Hard to keep your feet on the ground
'Cause when we get so wired
We only wanna fly 'round

Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're bouncing off the ceiling

I had to think a little to remember the tune of this, and you did a good job

Mrs. Olsen says, "This parody is the richest, most aromatic kind!"

I am surprised that more Lionel Richie songs are not parodied. Great job!

A song about coffee is enough to warrant a trio of 5s. "Good to the last drop".

VH1 said this song was "Awesomely Bad." (Which would back up Tim's statement.) But your title alone is worth fives. I'm glad you perked up and ground this one out. You really used your bean. You are now a Coffee Achiever. Somewhere, Robert Young is smiling.
