Coffee And Wine
« back
Tommy you know he had one deaf ear
Back from his minesweeping days
You never could tell just what he could and could not hear
And the intended to keep it that way

He joined the Navy just like his daddy done
When he was of the rightful age
He took off right quick like many a kid did
When his parents tool hard to the drink

And now it's coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Anytime's a good time so go unlock your daughers
With his motorcycle friends and going off again
From the Black Sea all the way to Britain (all the way to Britain)

She was a dame of New Jersey fame
Lived her life like it was a Bourre game
And if there were sides being taken
You better believe you want to be on the side she was on

She went to the city for secretary school
Ended up working for the CIA
She had a shorthand that didn't suffer no fools
She intended to keep it that way

And she drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Any old time she could ride any horse she wanted
Anf if you gonna ride it, then you ride it like you stole it from a steeple chase

She drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Boys would try five chase but no one ever caught her
Till she found her love and Sheila didn't let Tommy sleep for days

Their first meeting was hardy a word
But he built her a harpsichord
He found her unconscious just inside the door
And carried her to help

Now every now and again
She pretends to faint on the harpischord bench
And he picks her up again
And carrries her up to their bed

And they drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Anytime's a good time cause now they have a daughter
And the rides so fast, they said they going to name her Farley

They drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Don't ask what kind it's just the kind our parents brought us
From the Black Sea shore and the girl next door who could ride
