JAVA JIVE Lyrics - Manhattan Transfer

Review The Song (1)



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 (Ah!)

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops, Mr. 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 that wonderful mug
And I'll cut a rug, 'till 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 (Ah!)

Boston bean (soy beans)
I said, them little itty bitty green beans (cabbage and greens)
You know that I'm not keen about a bean
Unless it is a chilly chili bean (Talk it boy!)

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops, Mr. Moto, I'm a coffee pot (yeah)
Shoot me the pot and I'll pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, 'an dat zat bottle

Slip me a slug from that wonderful mug
And I'll cut a rug that's snug in a jug
Drop your nickel in my pot, Joe
Takin' it slow
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, boy!

Reinventing singing | Reviewer: smartkookie | 7/11/2007

As a child growing up in the 1940's I heard the Inspots sing 'Java jive' ??? i remeber thinking what's all that about? Then in the 1970's when Manhattan Transfer reinvented the piece it took on a whole new meaning. Tom, Janis, Cheryl and Alan just give any song they sing a whole new universe!!! I still cry when I heard Janis'"Walk in Love". LONG MAY THEY SING. For those that haven't seen clips check them out on YouTube.
