black cold coffee lyrics – ufo

captain midnight and captain cruise
out on the ocean
like a storm of bad news
it took three monkeys in a plastic mac
to fit inside a paper sack

and they’re cooking up an alibi
cooking up some steam
out in the madness
somewhere in orleans
they had a plan,
they had a plot
beggars and blues was all they got

black cold coffee
black irish soup
cold on a silver spoon
she’s dancing through hoops

baby’s wishing on a wishing well
she’s moving up
and ringing her bell
can’t fly to heaven
on a persian rug
so put some coins in the old sailor mug

they travelled up together
from the coast
east of aldgate
silently like ghosts
they had a scam,
they had a scheme
for drunks and b*ms counting beans

black cold coffee
black irish soup
cold on a silver spoon
she’s dancing through hoops

solo

black cold coffee
black irish soup
cold on a silver spoon
she’s dancing through hoops
