This work is loosely based on the song BLACK COFFEE which has been sung by a number of
singers Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, K.D.Laing and Julie London. Although I could’nt find
who wrote the song, anybody out there know who wrote it.
A few verses from the song BLACK COFFEE.
You know a man is born to love a woman
To work and slave to pay her debts
Just because he’s only human
To drown his past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes.
I’m moonin’ all the mornin’
Mournin’ all the night
In between it’s nicotine
Not much heart to fight
Black coffee …
Feelin’ low as the ground
I’m waitin’ for my baby
To maybe come around.
Gonna drown my past regrets
In some coffee and a few cigarettes
