PARODY: Coffee Is My Friend

I don't know if you've ever seen the video for the song "Jesus Is My Friend" by Sonseed. It's a rather cheesy Christian ska song that has made the rounds on YouTube lately. If you want to understand the context of the parody (or if you just want to see a really cheesy praise song), click here. If you haven't seen it . . . well . . . just watch it. I'll leave it to you to form your own opinion.

Special thanks go to my friend Susan Buetow, whose Facebook status this morning inspired me. Even though I don't drink coffee myself, as a former Pepsi and Mountain Dew addict, I can certainly understand the need for that little extra something to get going.

And so, without any further ado, here is my tribute to "the other Lutheran sacrament".

Coffee Is My Friend

(Chorus) Coffee is a friend of mine
Coffee is my friend
Coffee is a friend of mine
I have a friend in coffee
Coffee is a friend of mine
Coffee is my friend
Coffee is a friend of mine

1. It helps me through my day when people get to me
I don't know how I'd live my life if I were caffeine-free
I've tried other drinks and nothing works as well
Starting days without it can be hell (Chorus)

2. It gives me extra pep for dealing with my kids
It helps me when I feel my life's about to hit the skids
The coffee may be bitter but with milk it's not so bad
And think of all the sugar you can add (Chorus)

3. Once I tried to quit--I tried to drop caffeine
But after just an hour I found myself becoming mean
Coffee is like garlic--it gives you nasty breath
Give me coffee, please, or give me death! (Chorus)

4. I drink it in the morning and just before I sleep
I drink both when it's fresh and when it's had some time to steep
I drink to calm my nerves--without I get the shakes
Just think: if not for coffee, there would be no coffee cake! *GASP* (Chorus)
