Too Much Coffee


"Coffee (Too Much)"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Coffee for breakfast, coffee for lunch, coffee for tea, coffee for brunch

I need my coffee, I gotta have it, every day

First time I tried coffee I was just a kid

Tasted so bad I nearly flipped my lid

Next thing you know I just couldn’t stop

Started with a sip, and swallowed every drop

Too much coffee………….too much coffee

I need my coffee all of the time

I need it in the morning, I crave it at night

Of course I’ve gotta have it steamin’ hot 

I don’t care if you like it or not

Too much coffee………….too much coffee

I like java, mocha, cappuccino

And espresso too

I prefer Brazilian or Columbian 

But American will do

Too much coffee………….wow

I gotta have coffee ‘cause I never sleep

I can’t live without the smell of fresh-roasted beans

Yeah, I’m wired, think it might be rottin’ my gut

Think I’m trippin’, could be I’m chock full of nuts

Now I’m freakin’ out, oh yeah, I’m freakin’ out, oh

Too much coffee………….too much coffee

Once I got stuck on a plane

I needed my fix to keep from goin’ insane

I couldn't help it when I chatter my teeth

Stewardess said coffee, tea, or me?

Too much taster’s choice

Too much coffee………….too much coffee

I like to live my life at a different speed

It’s the only way to be

Come on, baby, I’m beggin’ you please

Come on and drink some coffee with me

Too much coffee………….too much coffee

Too much coffee………….too much coffee                  brew, sip, gulp, sigh

Brief Description

It can be fun and also scary to have way too much caffeine in your system.  That's how I felt when I wrote this.  You've got wild energy, yet after a certain point you're wondering when you'll come down from the buzz so you can sleep again.  The plastic Mr. Coffee machine was fun to record and blend in to this.  I always thought I'd perform this live at a coffee house, but as of yet, have not sought the opportunity.  Not sure it would entertain or impress the types who frequent those places, but you never know.  Maybe someday.
