Coffee Chaos – January 2014 “Thank You For the Coffee!”

Coffee Chaos The Monthly Journal

A few days ago my wife and daughter convinced me to watch Mamma Mia with Meryl Streep.  It’s definitely a chick flick, but it did take me back to the days of the 1970’s, when I listened to ABBA’s music.  I love 70’s music with the exception of disco, so Dancing Queen only made me cringe.

The lyrics were better, the musicians, were in fact, musicians, but their dancing was horrible in comparison to today’s over-sexed and choreographed routines.  You gotta love all those far out fashions and platform diving shoes. But, I want melodies and lyrics to sing with.  So sometimes you just have to create your own, which I have below.  First you must have context, so watch this famous ABBA song Thank You For The Music.

Now that you have the tune in your head, let’s insert some new lyrics, because I love coffee and I want to shout it out to all my international followers (all two of you!)

So take a chance on me and sing along.  Knowing me, knowing you, I know you will love it.

THANK YOU FOR THE COFFEE©

E.W. GREENLEE 2014

I’m nothing special, in fact I’m a bit of a bore

If I tell a joke before coffee, you’ll probably get sore

But I have an addiction, a most wonderful thing

Because the Colombian Supremo just makes me want to sing

I’m so terribly grateful and proud

All I want is to sing out loud

(Chorus)

So I say,

Thank you for the coffee that I am drinking

It jump starts my brain, so I can start thinking

Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty

What would life be?

Without caffeine, who and what are we?

So I say thank you for the coffee

For giving it to me.

My father said it would give me hair like Tom Selleck’s chest,

So I just keep drinking and hoping for the hairy best.

And I’ve often wondered how did it all start?

Without it I’d not be so clever or a funny man.

Well, it may be Juan Valdez, but whoever it was, I’m their biggest fan!

(Chorus)

 So I say,

Thank you for the coffee that I am drinking

It heals my mind, after too much drinking

Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty

what would life be?

Without caffeine,  who and what are we?

So I say thank you for coffee

For giving it to me.

I’ve been so lucky, I am the guy with the insulated mug,

I wanna sing about it to every slow moving slug.

What joy, what a life, what a natural laxative!

(Chorus)

So I say,

Thank you for the coffee that I am drinking

It keeps me awake, and from slumping and sinking

Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty

what would life be?

Without caffeine, who and what are we?

So I say thank you for the coffee

I’d love to take it intravenously!!!

I know the chances of ABBA ever reuniting are almost impossible.  But if they find these lyrics enticing for a reunion, I’d sing a duet with Agnetha Faltskog.  I’ll even take my royalties in the form of coffee beans.  Can you hear my SOS?

Disclaimer – To the members of ABBA, this is a humor blog.  It’s my goal to become a famous writer and tour the world.  Please do not sue me. Please have a heart.  I have less than two beans to my name.
