Black Coffee
Julie London Lyrics


I'm feelin' mighty lonesome
Haven't slept a wink
I walk the floor and watch the door
In between I drink
Black coffee
Love's a hand-me-down brew
I'll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room

I'm talkin' to the shadow
One o'clock till four
And Lord, how slow the moments go
When all I do is pour
Black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I'm hangin' out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry

Now man is born to go a lovin'
A woman's born to weep and fret
To stay at home and tend her oven
And drown her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes

I'm moonin' all the mornin'
Moanin' all the night
And in between it's nicotine
And not much heart to fight
Black coffee
Feelin' low as the ground
It's drivin' me crazy
This waitin' for my baby
To maybe come around
To maybe come around

Pour me black coffee
And I'll come around

Julie London was an amazing talent. Her voice and interpretations of songs create images making a 3d representation of the music and transcends audible medium. Incredible tone, phrasing, and delivery without the need of "extra crap" that takes away from the music like we hear so much of these days in music. When its done right you don't need all that extra riffing.

My Dad was a huge fan. He'd play her records on the hifi along with his other swing, band, & blues albums. He worked swing shift. When he worked 3-11pm he'd fix a cocktail & would strike up the tunes. Great memories hearing these songs in the middle of the night.

This is the best arrangement of this song I've heard, and her voice would melt ice in Antarctica in winter.

Júlia Carla
