Hope Waits – Cigarettes And Coffee lyrics

It's so early in the morning, about a quarter till three
I'm sittin' here talkin' with my baby
Over cigarettes and coffee, now
I would like to tell you that, Darling I've been so satisfied
Honey since I met you, Baby since I've met you

All the places I've been around, and all the good looking boys I've met
They just don't seem to fit in, Knowing this is particularly sad, yeah

But it seemed so natural, darling, that you and I are here
Just talking over cigarettes and drinking coffee

And my whole heart cries out
Love at last I've found you
And honey won't you let me, just let me
Build my whole life around you
And how complete, how complete my whole life would be
If you would take things under consideration
And walk down this aisle with me
I would love it, yeah

It's so early in the morning
It's a quarter till three
We're sittin' here talkin'
Over cigarettes and drinking coffee, now, lord
And would like to tell you, well
I've known nothing but good old joy
Since I met you,
Honey since I've met you

I would love to have another drink of coffee, now
And please, darling, help me smoke just one more cigarette

I don't want no cream and sugar, because I've got you
Just help me enjoy this good time that we'll have
It's so early, so early in the morning
So early, so early in the morning
And I've got you
And you've got me
And we'll have each other
And we don't, we don't need nothing but good ole joy
