Black Coffee and Cigarettes - Lyrics

I don't drink, I just smoke
I don't gamble no more
And I don't use no toke
All I wanna do is be with you
Smoke my cigarettes and have some java brew
Make it black, and strong, that's what I need
Cause when I think of love, don't you know what I bleed?
I bleed blues, and rhythm, and rock'n roll
All that funky stuff that shakes up my soul

Drinking black coffee and cigarettes
Trying to remember what she told me to forget
When you love somebody, then you split
You're drinking black coffee and cigarettes
Now coffee next to oil is the second greatest traded commodity
I don't know what that means!
All I know I'm black and I'm blue, and I'm crazy for you
Sometimes I just want to scream
(Go on and scream boy!)
Even Nostradamus couldn't name us
Cause love is blind- love is blind
And you can't see the future
You just say 'who's her?'
She's sure 'nough is fine

Drinking black coffee and cigarettes
Trying to remember what she told me to forget
When you love somebody, then you split
You're drinking black coffee and cigarettes
(Lead solo)
I took a bus trip back in time
Round 66 when it was the main line
I saw teepees and motel, design like events
And then I saw that place
Where we once spent
But nostalgia ain't what it used to be
When you take out the good parts and leave in the misery
But if I had to do it again
You know I'd do it with you, it was dumb like sin, yeah!

Drinking black coffee and cigarettes
Trying to remember what she told me to forget
When you love somebody, then you split
You're drinking black coffee and cigarettes
I'm singing (la la la la)
Yeah, yeah, yeah (la la la la)
I'm singing (la la la la)
Drinking black coffee and cigarettes
Trying to remember what she told me to forget
When you love somebody, then you split
You're drinking black coffee and cigarettes
Drinking black coffee and cigarettes
