Song Lyrics:
(spoken intro)
We've now reached the audience participation portion of our album. This is an old sing-a-long song and what we'd like for you to do is listen to the chorus of this song and then sing along with us. We'll go through it once and then you can sing with us.

(sung)
A sultan sat on his Oriental mat
With his harem in downtown Persia
He took a sip of coffee, just a drip
Then he said to his servant Ursa:
"Ahhh, curse ya, curse ya, curse ya!
That's the worst cup of coffee in Persia!"

CHORUS
'Caaaaaaaaaaaause
All I want is a proper cup of coffee
Made in a proper copper coffee pot
I may be off my dot
But I want a proper coffee in a proper copper pot
Iron coffee pots and tin coffee pots
They are no use to me
If I can't have a proper cup of coffee in a proper copper coffee pot
I'll have a cup of tea!

(spoken)
Ya got it? Well, join right in!

(sung)
In days of old, when knights and men were bold
And whiskey was much cheaper
Ben Turpin rode to the coffee house and showed
His pistols to the keeper
He said, "Stand and deliver!
Can't you see that I'm all a-quiver!"

CHORUS

Now, Bonaparte knew that he was in the cart
When he lost that Waterloo fight
He gave his sword to Wellington, my lord
And he said, "Those British can half-fight!
Now you had your Waterloo, sir
Tell me what *sniff* am I having with you, sir?"

CHORUS (in bad French-sounding English)

(spoken)
Well, we didn't expect you to sing along with that last verse because, well,...it was in French. This is your last chance, though. It's the "People Magazine" version of the song and it goes like this:

(sung)
Now, King Solomon and his wife would carry on
When we heard in the ancient scandals,
He bought her lots of silver coffee pots
With diamond legs and handles
And said the Queen of Sheba,
"I'd rather have any old tea-ba!"

'Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaause (EVERYBODY!)

(sung three times, each time getting progressively faster)
All I want is a proper cup of coffee
Made in a proper copper coffee pot
I may be off my dot
But I want a proper coffee in a proper copper pot
Iron coffee pots and tin coffee pots
They are no use to me
If I can't have a proper cup of coffee in a proper copper coffee pot
I'll have a cup of tea!
