Bill Haley & His Comets – Forty Cups Of Coffee lyrics

Pace the floor, stop and stare
I drink a cup of coffee
Start to pulling out my hair

[Chorus:]
I drink forty cups of coffee
Forty cups of coffee
Forty cups of coffee
Waiting for you to come home

A quarter to twelve
And you're still not in
The way you run around
Is a doggone sin

[Repeat chorus]

Forty cups of coffee
Forty cups of coffee
Forty cups of coffee

A quarter to three
I start watching the clock
The phone won't ring
So I'm waiting for your knock

[Repeat chorus]

A quarter to four
You ain't got home yet
I try to be cool
And smoke a cigarette

[Repeat chorus]

You knock on the door
About a quarter to five
I wanna hug you and kiss you
And say thank God that you're alive

I drank forty cups of coffee
(Forty cups of coffee)
Forty cups of coffee
(Forty cups of coffee)
Forty cups of coffee
But I'm glad you finally came home
