Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht, Movement 4, BVW 21, aka: The Coffee Cantata by J.S. Bach

Lyrics by Liza Malamut


My alarm goes of to early.
I’ve already said don’t talk to me until I’ve had my caffeine.
Oh! Oh! I need my coffee.
Now. Please. Give me my coffee
Don’t say a word, but bring me coffee.
Time for a quick light roast at Dunkins or a Starbucks flat white.
Make sure they spell my name right.
Coffee, coffee!
Morning salvation, but until then please no conversation.
Please let me drink my coffee, let me drink my coffee now.
Zip it. Seriously. Don’t speak at this junction. I need my skim latte to function.
Shhh! I’m ignoring you till noon, till this cup is drained.
Coffee, coffee! I need my coffee. Leave me in peace until this cup is drained.
