Oh, I wish I were a Kona Coffee beaner
That is what I'd truly like to be
'Cuz if I were a Kona Coffee beaner
Everyone would be in love with me.
Oh, I'm glad I'm not a Kona Coffee beaner
That is what I'd never like to be
'Cuz if I were a Kona Coffee beaner
Everyone would soon be grinding me!

If you don't know the tune I'm not going to tell you:-)
Just came to me today while traveling between computer service calls...

Easier said than done when on 24x7 standby for a week and still have regular
day shift to do. But then, it OT helps pay for coffee goodies!:-)

And coffee helps with that schedule, no doubt. It is all an endless circle.

Yup. One reason (excuse, justification etc.) I never leave home without my
'road warrior' chilled white chocolate Kona mocha in the cooler! (that and
the taste is highly addictive:-)

Does this group have a theme song yet?
Back in my day, a heck of a long time ago, there was a song called "The =
Java Jive"
One of the lines  went
"I love coffee, I love tea, I love the Java Jive and it loves me"
Any others that you can think of?

Well, there's "The Coffee Song", done by Frank Sinatra and others:
Way down among Brazilians
Coffee beans grow by the billions
So they've got to find those extra cups to fill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil
You can't get cherry soda 
'Cause they've got to fill that quota
And the way things are I'll bet they never will
They've got a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil
No tea or tomato juice
You'll see no potato juice
The planters down in Santos all say no no no
The politician's daughter
Was accused of drinking water
And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil
You date a girl and find out later 
She smells just like a percolator
Her perfume was made right on the grill
Why they could percolate the ocean in Brazil
And when their ham and eggs need savor
Coffee ketchup gives 'em flavor
Coffee pickles way outsell the dill
Why they put coffee in the coffee in Brazil
So your lead to the local color
Serving coffee with a cruller
Dunking doesn't take a lot of skill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

I remembered the song because I have it on an old LP.  The lyrics came from
www.azlyrics.us/95201.
A google search also turned uphttp://www.iramarlowe.com/coffee2.htm:
 THE COFFEE SONG
First thing in the morning 
and if I had my way 
the morning wouldn't come so @#$%! early in the day 
but I've got the magic potion 
to set my ass in motion 
three or four cups more 
and I might get out the door 
My doctor says to cool it 
he thinks he's so smart 
he says I better listen 
before I percolate my heart 
but I pour myself a cup or two 
for every word he says 
and I quaff a quart of caffeine 
for every little bean picked by Juan Valdez 
See, me I have this theory 
and it drips with the truth 
it says: Mrs. Olson's saved more marriages than Dr. Ruth 
cause if baby's cup don't measure up 
there's gonna be remorse 
she'll be brewing discontent 
and leaving grounds for divorce 
Now I'm sitting in a Denny's and I'm feeling so fine 
as the waitress fills my cup up for the 52nd time 
but now she's looking at me funny 
she's moving kinda slow 
something ain't right here-I don't know... 
I got places to go, people to see 
get me my check dammit-chop chop, honey! 
what's wrong with these people? 
they think I've got all day? 
and why does everybody keep looking at me that way? 
there's something going on here, they're all out to get me 
it's part of a big plot‚how much you wanna bet me? 
they're trying to do me in, what else am I to think? 
they're gonna stab me in the back or 
put something in my... drink 
So you have your choice: class or, well, something else.

A classic.  I had the band play it at my wedding. 
'Course, the wife didn't want it as our first song for
some reason.
And, for what it's worth, I can belt this tune out
with the best of 'em.

"Black Coffee" is the first one that came to my mind.   Sarah Vaughn has
a real sultry version of it.

Craig, do you have a file with the tune on it, by any chance.  Couldn't find
it on the web, and I'd really like to hear what it sounds like!
