lyrics

She read a copy of the Kama Sutra over fresh Sumatra:
Hot coffee in late July.
As the cup cooled down, the reading got hotter -
She stole a glance from the corner of her eye

At the tall iced mocha standing in the corner -
She creamed and sugared; he was hypnotized. He said,
“Let me buy you one, baby - what’s your drink?”
She looked at him and sighed…

The devil’s mocha.
Nothing else will do,
She wants the devil’s mocha.
A cup of black coffee to cure your low-down blues.

Pretty soon, they were carrying a sleep debt - no time to waste.
She was jonesing for a jolt from the temperature and taste
Of the macchiato Americano
That only he could provide.

And he was burning deep down for a caffeinated kiss
That she could only get from those cappuccino lips.
They were percolating full time:
Couldn’t pass a coffee shop without

The devil’s mocha.
Nothing else will do,
She wants the devil’s mocha.
A cup of black coffee to cure your low-down blues.

Well, I’m sure they thought that they were doing just fine -
Coffee cooking, keep the grinder going all the time.
But you know you gotta put on the brakes
When you wake up every morning with a headache and the shakes.

Coffee and love, so the story goes,
With the passage of time, they grow bitter and cold.
They say he found a new barista,
They say she switched to tea so,
I guess that is the end of the rhyme.

In a Starbucks in the Village, he is wearing a frown;
He sits alone at a table choking decaf down
And in a tearoom uptown, she learns that Earl Grey don’t drown
The dream of Kama Sutra Sumatra:

The devil’s mocha.
Decaf just won’t do,
He wants the devil’s mocha.
She needs more than simply tea for two:
She wants a double shot with cream and sugar too,
The devil’s mocha:
A cup of black coffee to cure your low-down blues.
