Cooke, Sam - The Coffee Song (They've Got An Awful Lot Of Coffee In Brazil) Lyrics




Way down among the Brazilians,
Coffee beans grow by the billions,
So they've got to find those extra cups to fill,
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil.

You can't get cherry soda,
'Cause they've got to sell their quota,
And the way things are I guess they never will,
They've got a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil,
No tea or tomato juice,
You'll see no potato juice,
'Cause the planters down in Santos all say No! No! No!

A politician's daughter,
Was accused of drinking water,
And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill,
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil.

A politician's daughter,
Was accused of drinking water,
And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill,
They've got an awful lot of coffee, a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil.

    Way down among Brazilians
    Coffee beans grow by the billions
    So they've got to find those extra cups to fill
    They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

    You can't get cherry soda'
    Cause they've got to sell that quota
    And the way things are I guess they never will
    They've got a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil

    No tea - or tomato juice
    You'll see - no potato juice
    Cause the planters down in Santos all say
    No no no

    The politician's daughter
    Was accused of drinking water
    And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill
    They got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

    No rum - and no soda cup
    It's bad - for the coffee crop
    And those tiny little TV beans say
    No no no

    So your lead to the local color
    Serving coffee with a cruller
    Dunking doesn't take a lot of skill
    They got an awful lot of coffee
    A zillion tons of coffee
    They got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

    What a voice she was blessed with,a true soprano and could sing opera,too,she was very talented,her death leaves a void,just like the death of Pavarotti,any one who is this immensley talented,leaves a void in a persons life.May she rest in God's holy protective hands.We miss you Eydie,and we love you,God bless you.

    "Soprano"? Perhaps at times, but more usually Eydie was a wonderfully sonorous, resonant mezzo.

    Yes I remember this number as performed , wait for it , Danny Kaye maybe with the Andrew sisters circa 1947. Takes me back to the RAF.
