lyrics

Songwriters: Paul Francis Webster, Sonny Burke

I'm feeling mighty lonesome
Haven't slept a wink
I walk the floor and watch the door
And in between I drink
Black coffee Love's a hand me down brew
I'll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room

I'm talking to the shadows
1 o'clock til 4
And lord, how slow the moments go
When all I do is pour
Black coffee Since the blues caught my eye
I'm hanging out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry

Now a man is born to go a lovin'
A woman's born to weep and fret
To stay at home and tend her oven
And drown her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes

I'm moaning all the morning
And mourning all the night
And in between it's nicotine
And not much heart to fight

Black coffee Feelin' low as the ground
It's driving me crazy just waiting for my baby
To maybe come around

My nerves have gone to pieces
My hair is turning gray
All I do is drink black coffee
Since my man's gone away

about

Deborah E Los Angeles, California

Deborah E is a smooth and sultry summer night on Bourbon Street... Classy with a dash of sass... Proof that the jazz greats have not been sacrificed to processed pop.
