I've traveled all over this big wide world
and I'll tell 'ya, ain't nuthin' new!
But the bark of the boss,
the wife's chewins' out,
an' I can't find a good cup of coffee!

I been spendin' these dimes,
recitin' some rhymes
never knowin' what it all means
an' I can't find a good cup of coffee,
no matter who's grindin' the beans!

So what's a man to do
if he don't know who
can give him that 'surge' he needs...?
When he can't find a good cup of coffee,
an' he's too much man to drink tea!

...just bein' Bluesy

Well pardon me Bluesy
But it takes a man to drink tea...
So if bland coffee is a concern
You could always learn
To make your own
Then there'd no reason to moan
That seems  quite simple to me
But then I only drink Tea ....

Thanks to you Jerry for seeing the "whimsical" in my little tale.

Didn't mean to wake you pal, but as long as you're up, how about putting a pot on? My peepers could use a percolated pry-bar too!
