As recorded by GERTRUDE LAWRENCE & JACK BUCHANAN: JACK: In the movie plays of nowadays A romance always must begin in June Tales in magazines have all their scenes Of love laid in a garden 'neath the Moon But I don't miss that kind of bliss All I want is this..... A cup of coffee, a sandwich and you A cozy corner, a table for two A half-an-hour to cuddle and coo With lots of hugging and kissing in view I don't need music, lobster and wine Whenever your eyes gaze into mine The things I long for are simple and few Just a cup of coffee, a sandwich and you GERTRUDE: If it is because you can't afford more Sandwiches and coffee we will share But if it's to help you save and hoard more I can plainly see how much you care Now, if were you, flirting with me My advance would be I've got a thousand and nothing to do I'd like to lend it or spend it on you I know I'm reckless, but you want some girl To choose that necklace, I'll buy every whirl Oh, Mister Roubens, I'll take a chance Perhaps for coffee, but not for romance The things I long for are fewer than few A cup of coffee, a sandwich and you ******************** As recorded by HELEN CLARK & FRANKLYN BAUR: In the movie plays of nowadays A romance always must begin in June Tales in magazines have all their scenes Of love laid in a garden 'neath the Moon But I don't need that kind of bliss What I want is this A cup of coffee, a sandwich and you A cozy corner, a table for two A chance to whisper, and cuddle and coo With lots of huggin' and kissin' in view I don't need music, lobster or wine Whenever your eyes look into mine The things I long for are simple and few A cup of coffee, a sandwich and you If it is because you can't afford more Sandwiches and coffee we will share But if it's to help you save and hoard more I can plainly see how much you care If were you, talking to me My approach would be A cup of coffee, a sandwich and you A cozy corner, a table for two A chance to whisper, and cuddle and coo With lots of huggin' and kissin' in view I don't need music, lobster or wine Whenever your eyes look into mine The things I long for are simple and few A cup of coffee, a sandwich and you (Instrumental Break) With lots of huggin' and kissin' in view I don't need music, lobster or wine Whenever your eyes look into mine The things I long for are simple and few A cup of coffee, a sandwich and you, you, you-oo-oo (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2015)
