No sugar

When I wake up in the morning, when the day is new
I never know exactly what I wanna do
I’m as cranky as a hobo sleeping in the cold
And those birds are celebrating another day unfolding, hey

I hate the light that’s shining in the cracks of my eyes
And I hate all the pains, my back ain’t telling no lies
I know I got to take a shower, I know I need to shave
My brain is trying to figure out how it wants me to behave, hey

And then I see, my love coming round for me
Coming my way, she’s coming my way
Oh yeah it’s hot, what my baby’s got is hot
Coming my way, sugar’s coming my way
But I don’t need no sugar, give me black coffee

The clouds in my head are disappearing and my throat is feeling the heat
And suddenly I know what it is I really need
I say ‘drop the paper darling and I’ll show you what I’ve got’
‘It’s not a big surprise, I know, but baby it’s a lot’, hey

I’m walking in her footsteps, yes I’m following behind
The moves she makes are making movies in my mind
She gently pushes me around and drops me in the Fat Boy
She whispers ‘oh, you’re going to be so glad we met boy’, hey

And then I see, my love coming round for me
Coming my way, she’s coming my way
Oh yeah it’s hot, what my baby’s got is hot
Coming my way, sugar’s coming my way
And with a smile she gives another black coffee

When love is ‘round the corner try to grab it if you can
Or you’ll end up on your own because she picked another man
If you really want to have a good time with your baby
Don’t give an explanation ‘bout your taste, not even maybe
Lie a little ‘bout the way you feel with Starbucks on your mind
That your constricted throat ain’t gonna feel much better till you find a cup of black coffee
Just give her everything you’ve got and more she’ll ever need
No way you’re gonna say that nothing in the world can beat a cup of black coffee
