Description
this started out as a song for the MJ coffeeshop - cjhouse was the one who gave me the idea of keeping it to coffee!! I mucked about with a verse and a chorus and sent those to APB - he invited all the guys with the steel drums!!! so it's prolly not coffeeshop material at all but as most of my uploads usually are ... I forgive myself and as Alan is such a wizz at mixing, playing the guitar and singing I couldn't resist his fabulous contribution to this ... our first contribution to MJ as BrunchandChewy - we hope you like it x

Brunch - lead vocals, lyrics, composition, arranging
Chewy - backing vocals, guitar, bass, production etc.

Lyrics
Coffee is such a wonderful thing
It makes some people high - it makes others sing
To make it can be easy or perhaps a palaver
But the members of Macjams remind me of java

Chorus
We love to come in to collab. and swop
Macjams she is like a coffee shop.
Macjams is a special place – a musical family in cyberspace

American is a medium roasted bean
It gives a moderate brew that’s not too strong or too mean.
In flavour not too heavy and not too light –
The Yankee-Doodle bean is quite alright

(Chorus)

A dark French roast is my favourite
Once it’s tasted it is hard to forget
Heavily roasted, a dark chocolate brown
It’s the best coffee that you’ll find around.

(Chorus)

There’s a drink that comes from Guatemala and Peru –
Columbian coffee – it will see you through - - -
The day so you will carry some clout
Get it down – stop FARCing about!!

(Chorus)

You might choose a civet or weasel’s arse
It is through that that the coffee must pass.
Jamaican Blue Mountain is divine -
I’ll comment on yours and you’ll comment on mine.

(Chorus)

There are those like a European roast,
They'll raise their mug and they'll make a toast,
To this fixture of a mixtured compliment your cuisine,
Baking a green bean in a roasting machine.

(Chorus)

There is instant, freeze-dried, de-caffeinated too,
Somewhere in this world there is a coffee for you,
People like in Vienna, they love it in Bratslava,
There is nothing in the world that can touch the java.

(Chorus)

Oh you may think it is coffee we're singing about,
And it could be coffee without a doubt,
But it's people that hold more interest for me,
And those at MJs are my cup of tea.

(Chorus)

.. for some reason I got fascinated with the notion of playing this tune on your keyboard: it would go- D, miao, miao, miao, D .. ;o)

oh I wouldn't mention the other thing to your customers .. take my advice, pretty certain it would be bad for business.
