Java Blues Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Stopped by a diner and the blond behind the counter
Asked if she could help in any way
I could tell by her smile, her number I could dial
If I was in the need of company
I asked her for some Java
Instead she brought a cup of hickory

A taste of Java is like a volcanic rush
Nobody's gonna stop me from drinkin' too much
Costs many more than you care to pay
But money is nothin', compared to a fired up day
Don't try to cheat, it's impossible to beat
The only pick me up that's here to stay

Java Blues, coffee's got me
Java Blues, coffee, coffee, coffee
Java Blues, well, the coffee's got me
Java Blues, coffee, coffee, coffee
You know that I'll stay high
Drinkin' coffee till I die
Java blues

Won't you boil me water, fill up my cup?
You know it takes a lot to keep me up
Down in Bolivia the people are insane
They want as much for Java as they do for cocaine
Don't try to cheat, it's impossible to beat
The only pick me up that's here to stay

Java Blues, coffee's got me
Java Blues, coffee, coffee, coffee
Java Blues, you don't know what it does to me
Java Blues, coffee, coffee, coffee
You know that I'll stay high
Drinkin' coffee till I die
Java Blues
