Beth Hart – Black Coffee lyrics
Black coffee (ooh)
Is my name
Black coffee (black coffee)
We're not a thing
Black coffee (ooh)
Freshly ground and fully prepared
Hot black coffee, boy (black coffee)
Mmm that's where it's at (mean it)

Way back yonder when I don't know when
See I got hungover before I was ten
You see my skin is white but my soul is black
And a hot black coffee, that's where it's at

(Black coffee) that's what I'm talking about
(Black coffee)
(Black coffee) ooh, you've got to feel it in the air
(Black coffee)
(Black coffee)

Will you hear that?
Some black tea
It can't compare with me (can't compare with me)
Black tea (ooh)
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, yeah

Here in america, where it's the land of the free
And you can get what you want if you've got some do re mi
And I've got me a job, and I'm working like a slave
Yeah I'm independent and you know I get paid
Say I got me a man, and I got me a little place
I got a spit of black coffee, and how good it tastes
I said a, a dime is all it costs in the States
For a cup of black coffee and how good it tastes

(Black coffee) and alright
(Black coffee) oh
(Black coffee) that's what I want, that's what I need
(Black coffee) ooh, what I want me
(Black coffee) that's what I want, that's what I need
(Black coffee) that's what I'm talking about, and it's what I'm talking about
(Black coffee) a black coffee
(Black coffee) a black coffee, child
(Black coffee) it's where it's at, it's where it's at
(Black coffee) it's where it's at, what I need
Black coffee
