Coffee Retort Song! - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

(To the tune If I Only Had A Heart!)
Half and Half in mine please,
While we poetically assemble
And my shaking fingers tremble,
Till the caffeine gives a start.
While my lips start to quiver
And my body gives a shiver
Please pour some coffee
In my cup!
I see you already have yours
And you like to drink it black sir,
But I really need the cream.
If I don’t have it, it’s too bitter
And I hate to be a quitter,
So let’s go and find a cow!
So here’s to you my new friend
You can read your poem again then,
You may pause to take a sip,
You should have blown across the top
I tried to warn you friend to stop,
Now you’ve gone and burnt your lip!
