CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS
by Christine Lavin

There are happy sounds that cheer my soul
almost every time
wedding bells      
a champagne cork      
the destruction of a wind chime  
"the tinkling of a wind chime"    

But when I'm bluer than can be
even those don't do a thing for me
the only sound can tweak my spirit
listen closely . . . can you hear it

Chocolate covered espresso beans
my favorite way to consume caffeine
it's quick . . . it's easy . . . nuthin to it
why drink coffee when you can chew it
I don't need water or a cup
I pop a coupla these watch my world perk up
you can throw out your fancy latte machines
when you've got chocolate covered espresso beans

         Harold Alexander is the name of the man
         who came up with this idea
         combined caffeine and chocolate you can hold in your hand
         oh how I love to hear . . .

(chorus repeats - slight lyric variation)
Chocolate covered espresso beans
my favorite way to get a shot of caffeine
it's quick . . . it's easy . . . nuthin to it
even Argentines without means do it
I don't need water or a cup
pop a coupla these watch my world perk up
I've given up my expensive Starbucks routine
cause I've got chocolate covered espresso beans

             I know my dad is thinking I'm such a Type A Daughter
              I don't even have the time it takes to boil water"
              but dad I'm not the kind of girl who cooks and cleans
              now that I have found these magic . . .

chocolate covered espresso beans      
how this modern girl prefers her caffeine
it's quick . . . it's easy . . . nuthin to it
I don't brew coffee  . . .  I chew it
you don't need water or a cup
pop a coupla these watch your world perk up
In Brooklyn Staten Island Bronx Manhattan and Queens
three cheers for chocolate covered . . .
and Harold Alexander who discovered . . .
chocolate covered . . .
espresso beans!
