Black coffee is my name
Black coffee is not a thing
Black coffee freshly ground and fully packed
Hot black coffee boys
Black coffee
That's where it's at
Mean it!
Way back you all know
Since I don't know when
See I got to move on
Before I was 10
You see my skin is white
But my soul is black
So hot black coffee
That's where it's at
Black coffee
That's what I'm talkin' about boys
Black coffee
That's what I mean
Black coffee
Ooh! You've got to feel it in your hand
Black coffee
Hmm! Yer!
Black coffee
Well you hear that
Some black tea
Well it can't compare with me
That's right
Black tea well it's as good as
It's as good as
It's as good as it can be
But it's a cup of black coffee
That a working man needs to see yer
In America, well it's the land of the free
You can get what you want if you've got some do re me
Travelling far and I work like a slave
Now how can you get and you know I get L.A.
I get me a job and I build me a place
I got a spit of black coffee
Oh! How good it tastes!
I said a dime is all it costs in the states
For a cup of black coffee
How good it tastes!
Black coffee
Black coffee
Black coffee
It's what I want now
It's what I need
Black coffee
To suit my soul
To suit my soul now
Black coffee
It's what I want
It's what I need
Black coffee
It's where it's at
It's where it's at
Black coffee
It's where it's at
It's where it's at
Etc., etc.
