Java Jive

I love this animation by Kristyna Baczynski. This little java bean is from Brazil, not from Java. But then, in the US any good cup of coffee is “a cup of java”.

I love coffee, I love tea,
I love the Java Jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me,
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

I love java sweet and hot,
Whoops, Mister Moto, I’m a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot, and I’ll pour me a shot,
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Oh slip me a slug from the wonderful mug
and I’ll cut a rug ’til I’m snug in a jug
A slice of onion and a raw one,
Draw one!
Waiter, waiter, percolator!

I love coffee, I love tea,
I love the Java Jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me,
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Boston beans (soy beans)
I said the little itty-bitty green bean
(cabbage n’ greens)
You know that I’m not keen about a bean,
unless it is a chili chili bean! (Talk it, boy!)

I love java sweet and hot,
Whoops, Mister Moto, I’m a coffee pot (yeah)
You shoot me the pot, and I’ll pour me a shot,
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Blow me a slug from that wonderful mug
And I’ll cut a rug that’s snug in a jug
Drop a nickel in my pot – Joe
Takin’ it slow
Waiter, waiter percolator

I love coffee, I love tea,
I love the Java Jive an’ it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup – BOY!
