Bitter black coffee and piping hot tea Sit a-steaming and a-boiling just for me. The java spits and sputters, and mutters in its wrath; The yellow shrieks and bellows out of its kettle's mouth. Spitter sputter, sput spit, whoo whoo whee! Better bitter black coffee and piping hot tea When the winter nights are raving And the snowflakes are a-sailing, Than ice-cream and candybars Under a summer night's bright stars.
