Days without Espresso

[sung to the tune of "Nights in White Satin", by the Moody Blues]

To-day is dragging
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
never reaching the end
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
I could drink plain coffee, but
it's no good to pretend

Once my life shined
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
only hours ago
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
I had my espresso
now I'm feeling so low

I will miss you

my dear machine

of espresso...

[Part two]

It made lovely coffee
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
with a nice rich brown froth
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
but the man that maintained it
grabbed it and took off

Now I look out the window
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
my head aches and pounds
dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
from caffeine withdrawal
and I still hear the sounds

Of my espresso

machine breaking

I'm all alone...
