Eyes of Night Owls
|where it rains,|
|tains or the||D|
|Where the frost never forms on the||A|
|, trim and hoe,|
|ries start to grow.|
|, reap the||A|
Dry each one in the sun.
Crack them open when they’re done.
Find two beans: whitish green when they’re ripe.
Roast the seed that you’ve freed.
Open fire’s all you need.
Turn them slow in a wide metal pipe.
Turn them ’round ’til they’re browned,
Then you quickly cool them down.
They’ll be dark as the bark of a tree.
You can tell just as well
By the dark delicious smell,
Far more rich than you’d dreamed it could be.
Fill a pot. Get it hot.
Pour it through the grounds you’ve got.
It drips back clear and black as the night.
Drink it up from the cup
As an evening pick-me-up.
Call it coffee or night owl’s delight.
