PROPER CUP OF COFFEE (Aaron Gershunoff / Emanuele Pellegrini) as recorded by The Andrews Sisters 1958 A Sultan sat on his oriental mat, In his harem, High Street, Persia. He took one sip Of his coffee, just a drip, And he said to his wise old Kersia, Oh, curse ya, curse ya, curse ya, It's the awfullest coffee in Persia! Oh, what I want is a proper cup of coffee, Made from a proper copper coffee pot. I might be off my nut, But I wanna proper cup o' coffee from a copper coffee pot. Iron coffee pots and tin coffee pots, They're no good to me! If I can't have a proper cup o' coffee from a proper copper coffee pot, I'll throw you in the sea! In old Baghdad, In old Baghdad, In old Baghdad, In old Baghdad, In old Baghdad Very often I have had Cups of coffee by the dozen, And you all should Make my coffee just as good, And without my blasted cussin'! Oh, curse ya, curse ya, curse ya, It's the awfullest coffee in Persia! Oh, what I want is a proper cup of coffee, Made from a proper copper coffee pot. I may be off my nut, But I wanna proper cup of coffee from a copper coffee pot. Brass coffee pots, glass coffee pots They're no good to me, If I can't have a proper cup o' coffee from a proper copper coffee pot, I'll have a cup o' tea, I'll have a cup o' tea!

Here is another version: A Sultan sat on his oriental mat, in his harem in downtown Persia, He took a sip of his coffee, just a drip, and he said to his servant Kersia, “Ah, curse ya, curse ya, curse ya, That’s the worst cup of coffee in Persia!” “‘Cause... All I want is a proper cup of coffee, made from a proper copper coffee pot, I may be off my nut, but I want a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper pot. Iron coffee pots and tin coffee pots, they’re no good to me! If I can't have a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot, I'll Throw you in the sea In old Baghdad in old Baghdad, in old Baghdad Very often I have had cups of coffee by the dozen And you all should make my coffee just as good and without my blasted cussing “Ah, curse ya, curse ya, curse ya, That’s the worst cup of coffee in Persia!” Oh All I want is a proper cup of coffee, made from a proper copper coffee pot, I may be off my nut, but I want a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper pot. Brass coffee pots, glass coffee pots They’re no good to me If I can't have a proper cup of coffee >From a proper copper coffee pot, I'll have a cup of tea!” I’ll Have a cup of tea.
