THE COFFEE SONG Bob Hilliard & Dick Miles Recorded by Frank Sinatra Way down among Brazilians coffee beans grow by the billions, So they've got to find those extra cups to fill - They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil. You can't get cherry soda ‘cause they've got to sell their quota And the way things are I guess they never will - They've got a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil. No tea, or tomato juice. You'll see no potato juice, ‘Cause the planters down in Santos all say No! No! No! A politician's daughter was accused of drinking water, And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill - They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil. Music break... You date a girl and find out later she smells like a percolator, Her perfume was made right on the grill - Why they could percolate the ocean in Brazil. And when their ham and eggs need savour coffee ketch-up gives them flavour, Coffee pickles ‘way out sell the dill - Why they put coffee in the coffee in Brazil. No tea, or tomato juice. You'll see no potato juice, ‘Cause the planters down in Santos all say No! No! No! So you'll add to the local colour serving coffee with a cruller, Dunking doesn't take a lot of skill - They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil. Copyright: 1946 Published by Southern Music Publishing Co Ltd 8 Denmark Street, London WC2 Additional lyric unverified If you want a place that's shady. Somewher you can tak a lady Coffee bushes grow upon a hill There in the most conveinent plases in Brazil (Contributed by Paul Daniel - August 2009)
