lyrics

Home from work
Bags and jackets and a bit of our sense strewn on the floor
The hazard of sanity
You and me and a cup of coffee
Put our thoughts together
Get some water and blank notepaper

Picking up the old guitar
Threading phrases few and far
What’s too silly to be said can be sung
Beaumarchais had it right

Kettle’s boiling, we’re writing this song
Teasing fate that has done us wrong
Coffee’s steaming we’re singing this song
Shake your tambourine, shake it as we go along

Sure it’s nice to lash your wit with a cynic’s gusto
Jaded to the core
(You get to look way cooler that way)
But sit back now, have a cup of coffee
Soaking in your smile
There are times to refrain
Time for refrain:

Picking up the old guitar
Threading phrases few and far
What’s too silly to be said can be sung
Georgie was so apt

Kettle’s boiling, we’re writing this song
Teasing fate that has done us wrong
Coffee’s steaming we’re singing this song
Shake your tambourine, shake it as we go along
