Java Jive

1940 – Ben Oakland / Milton Drake

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, boy

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops, Mr. Moto, I’m a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot now pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup

Oh, slip me a slug from the wonderful mug
I’ll cut a rug till I’m snug in a jug
A slice of onion and a raw one, draw one
Waiter, waiter, percolator

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup

Oh, Boston beans, soy beans (Yeah!)
Green beans, cabbage and greens (Home cooking!)
I’m not keen for a bean
Unless that is a cheery, cheery bean, boy

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and the tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, yeah

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops, Mr. Moto, I’m a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot now pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup (Yeah!)

Oh, throw me that slug from the wonderful mug
And I’ll cut a rug till I’m snug in the jug
Drop a nickel in a pot, Joe, takin’ it slow
Waiter, waiter, percolator

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, boy
