  • I'm feelin' mighty lonesome
    Haven't slept a wink
    I walk the floor an' watch the door
    In between I drink
    Black coffee â?¦
    
    Love's a hand-me-down brew
    I'll never know a Sunday
    In this weekday room.
    
    Been talkin' to the shadows
    One o'clock 'til four
    An' Lord how slow the moments go
    When all ya do is pour
    Black coffee â?¦
    
    Since the blues caught my eye
    I'm hangin' out on Monday
    My Sunday dreams to dry.
    
    You know a man is born to love a woman
    To work and slave to pay her debts
    Just because he's only human
    To drown his past regrets
    In coffee and cigarettes.
    
    I'm moonin' all the mornin'
    Mournin' all the night
    In between it's nicotine
    Not much heart to fight
    Black coffee ...
    
    Feelin' low as the ground
    I'm waitin' for my baby
    To maybe come around.
    
    Gonna drown my past regrets
    In some coffee and a few cigarettes.
    
    I'm moonin' all the mornin'
    Mournin' all the night
    In between it's nicotine
    And not much heart to fight
    Black coffee â?¦
    
    Feeling low as the ground
    It's driving me crazy!
    Just waitin' for my baby
    To maybe come around.
    Please come around
    Please come â?¦
