    "Black Coffee" Lyrics

    Billie Holiday feat. Sarah Vaughan

    I'm feeling mighty lonesome
    Haven't slept a wink
    I walk the floor and watch the door
    And in between I drink
    Black coffee

    Love's a hand-me-down brew
    I'll never know a Sunday
    In this weekday room

    I'm talking to the shadows
    One o'clock to four

    And lord, how slow the moments go
    When all I do is pour
    Black coffee

    Since the blues caught my eye
    I'm hanging out on Monday
    My Sunday dream's too dry

    Now, a man is born to go a-loving
    A woman's born to weep and fret
    To stay at home and tend her oven
    And drown her past regrets
    In coffee and cigarettes

    I'm moody all the morning
    Mourning all the night
    And in between, it's nicotine
    And not much hard to fight
    Black coffee

    Feeling low as the ground
    It's driving me crazy
    Just waiting for my baby
    To maybe come around

    My nerves have gone to pieces
    My hair is turning gray
    All I do is drink black coffee
    Since my man's gone away
