Although federal tax revenues have grown to record numbers either in spite of, or because of the Bush tax cuts, depending on whose side of the aisle you happen to sleep on, our federal debt has ballooned out of all proportion to the country's population increase. Although Bush cut the tax rate, the amount of revenue actually grew. This helps to illustrate that if you're trying to increase total tax revenues, you have to cut taxes to the point where the increase in economic activity generated by the larger...


One more idea -- "Tom's Diner" by Suzanne Vega is partly about coffee


One more tea song -- "Chrysanthemum Tea" from the Stephen Sondheim musical Pacific Overtures. (I prefer the Original Bway Cast from the 1970s; but the song is also on the early 2000s Broadway Revival.)

Thanks for a great list!

Very enthralling. Where can I find out more?

Do you have anymore info on ways to quit smoking


Very interesting. I like your style

High price- due to taxes and otherwise- is the biggest factor that deters children from starting tobacco in the first place. Due to the state of the economy, we may see even more adults say enough is enough when it comes to tobacco as well. The only problem may be that cigarette smokers may look to spit tobacco as an alternative. We need to help steer them toward the FDA approved NRT products like the patches and gum instead.


Sorry. Seize opportunity by the beard, for it is bald behind. Help me! There is an urgent need for sites: Fantasy stock market game. I found only this - Stock market valuation. And that money movement is determined by whether the holder of those funds believes that he or she can make a profit by the buying and selling of shares. Secondly, this time, the chinese will likely see it as a selling opportunity. THX :o, Barr from Ireland.


Thank you all a lot,

And i have got another song to add, "Coffee´s Cold" by Abigail Washburn.

Ray Ardry

I Need A Cuppa Joe

I don't know if this is already listed-- there's a song whose lyrics are:

I've always called it the coffee song, it's a round.

Don't drink too much coffee
Not for children is this Turkish drink
makes them nervous and unable to think
fine wine instead for me


This music is FANTASTIC!


"Black Coffee" by Humble Pie. I'm not sure if it's original or a cover.


The coffee song by Frank Sinatra

This list is fantastic, thanks for compiling it! Here's a coffee shop one that's adorable:

Bad Good

Does anyone know of a song by a country singer with a really low voice, first words are "Coffee Black, Cigarette...


What about Your So Vain by Carly Simon?

Amber Nordvik

Oops, sorry for not adding this to the last post, but there's a section about coffee in JBE's song "Someday Cafe", but that one's a hair more depressing...

Amber Nordvik

"Stress" by Jim's Big Ego is a hilarious song with an extended verse on coffee (and espresso). It also happens to be one of my favorites. (I think it may be the one Rye was looking for.)


has anyone mentioned Michelle Featherstone's Coffee and Cigarettes?
and Coffee Cup by Breaking News. the first one i first heard on a One Tree Hill episode, i think, or Grey's Anatomy. the second one is a jazz song which i like also. check them out as well. :)

I am looking for a song that I heard on the radio recently.

Each verse ends with sitting by the fireside and telling stories about the Christ Child and drinking a cup of Christmas tea. Does anyone know this song or how I can get a copy? Janice Graves dk


My favorite - Ray Materick's Put the Coffee On Linda


We have just opened a coffee and tea store online. I love the songs that I have found here.We are looking for someone to put together a "commercial" that we can post on YouYube and My Space. Would love to hear from anyone who has any ideas. Our budget is VERY limited. Our site is:


'ello! I found this entry while searching the Web for "coffee songs", so thanks! :) I'm compiling my own coffee playlist (tea & chocolate are welcome too, of course! I luvvvv all three.) May I suggest a few that aren't in your list?

1) Té para tres ("Tea for three"), by Argentine band Soda Stereo. I don't know if you understand Spanish, but this song is a classic in Latin American rock. The guitar sound is out of this world :)
2) Tea in the Sahara, by The Police.
3) Cup of coffee, by Garbage.

And a big THANK YOU goes for the girl who mentioned the song by The Flash Girls. I love Neil Gaiman, but wasn't aware of this song. Now, if only I could find it...


I have been looking for a song about coffee for some time. I think it was in a car commercial once. It's a rap song about coffee. The guy gets up in the morning and "gets a cuppa coffee" then stops on the way to work and "gets a cuppa coffee". Then get to work and goes in the break room and "gets a cuppa coffee". Has another at noon. Another at break time. He's always talking about "gets a cuppa coffee".

Anyone have a clue what the name of this song is and who the artist is?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!


A few others would be "Coffee Mug" & " Coffee & Cigarettes" both by Lagwagon and "Mr. Coffee" by Decendants.


One to add to your list would be the Cranberries "Wake up and smell the coffee "from the album of the same name. It's actually political but does reference coffee.


Great job!
In Romania the tea is becoming a show for very rich people.
The books are very interesting but I can't touch them.It would be interesting if you could post this books on a share file.
By the way some interesting chinese or japanese music for tea ceremony?!
Merry Christmas!


Also, Tea and Corpses, written by Neil Gaiman, sung by the Flash Girls.

I could have written the same e-mail as Steve-June 27,2006. Anyone know how I can get a copy of that song that Delilah wrote?
