uh-huh (Mama Likes Her Coffee)
This a happy little number I wrote just for fun. I recently added lyrics for the flute players so they could get the phrasing. (This was motivated by an interview I saw with Burt Bacharach where he said he wrote lyrics for trumpet parts, because if they could sing the part they would get the phrasing right.)
One of my flute playing friends is really into her coffee so the lyrics below were for her.
Yo' mama she likes her coffee.
Yo' mama she likes it a lot.
So serve it up right with a head of cream
she'll drink it that way all day long. yeah
The home roasted beans, go in the espresso;
they gotta get steamin' hot. (the cremé)
To brew it up right you gotta hear that steam
yo' mama wants it done just right.
The cremé, she says, is what really makes it yummy.
Hot espresso IS so delicious!
When done right, it has a wonderful foamy texture
Oh, man! I love it so!
So brew me a cup and make it a double
I'm feelin' so wild, why not? (oh mama!)
Just brew me a cup and top it off with cream
and serve it to me piping hot!
