The drink I have next is as dark as night,
And shadows linger deep inside my cup
They seem to suck the life out of the light
And when I drink they never fill me up.
But all I long for is this sweetest taste,
I'd give my soul for just one tiny drop
And when I drink then none will go to waste,
For I'll refill my glass when first I stop.
Oh coffee and beer and coca-cola come
Let darkest spirits fill my darkest needs
I mix them all up with a pint of rum
And let my body float down through the reeds.
There is no need for me to take my rest,
I raise my glass and get drunk with my guest.
