A Funny Song for Coffee Drinkers (Sung to ‘Memory’ from ‘Cats’)

by | Mar 18, 2014 | Latest, Poetry

Sung to ‘Memory’ from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Cats’, this poem celebrates the cruciality (is that a word?) of coffee, and its centrality to life.

‘Karaoke’ is at the end to sing along. Can you sing it? What’s written is a shortened version compared to the music.

I’m waiting for the day that a cover is done with full braggadocio of an italian tenor. 🙂


Coffee,
When I wake in the morning,
When thy ‘roma’s adorning
All my moments awake,
I remember the time I knew what happiness was,
When in pouring,
Thee I take.

From my bedside, hair dishevelled,
Launch I too thee enbaggéd
In the filter, then with some hot water,
I sink back full relaxéd.

Coffee,
Thou Brazilian glory,
Thou inspireth my story
And rechargeth my life,
And without thee I’ll never know what happiness is,
And no other,
I’ll contrive.



Where’s the best place you’ve had coffee?  For me it’s a little French cafe in Alexandria, VA, where their cappuccino is something I dream about. Step aside, Starbucks. 😉

It's a weird sense. A strange sense. Walking into a silent room, a silent house, surrounding by a silent town. Wrapped in quiet fields. No internet. None of the ADHD hum and click and swish and swipe of a network, or of social media. No notifications. Sitting down on...
