Black Coffee

Lyrics:Paul Francis Webster
Music:Sonny Burke

he song was publishe 1948.

Sarah Vaughan charted with this song in 1949 on Columbia.
Peggy Lee first released her version in 1953.
It was included in the soundtrack for the 1960 Columbia Pictures feature
Let No Man Write My Epitaph, recorded on Verve by Ella Fitzgerald,
also in 1960.
The version by Ella Fitzgerald was a favourite song of Polish Nobel Prize
laureate Wisława Szymborska who chose it as the song to be performed
at her funeral.

I'm feelin' mighty lonesome
Haven't slept a wink
I walk the floor an' watch the door
In between I drink
Black coffee ...
Love's a hand-me-down brew
I'll never know a Sunday
In this weekday rue.

Been talkin' to the shadows
One o'clock 'til four
An' Lord how slow the moments go
When all ya do is pour
Black coffee ...
Since the blues caught my eye
I'm hangin' out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry.

You know a man is bound to go a lovin'
A woman's born to weep and fret
To stay at home and tend her oven
To drown her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes.

I'm moanin' all the mornin'
Mournin' all the night
In between it's nicotine
Not much heart to fight
Black coffee ...

Feelin' low as the ground
It's drivin' me crazy
I'm waitin' for my baby
To maybe come around.
