Song: Coffee In The Morning (And Kisses In The Night)

I’ve got a mission
It’s just a simple thing

I’ve only one ambition: 
to have right to being you…

Your coffee in the morning
and kisses in the night


It makes no difference
where we decide to live

As long as I’m the one, dear,
who’s always gonna give you…

Your coffee In the morning
and kisses in the night

I listen to the radio, read every book on the self
I go to every picture show and say goodnight to myself
Nobody loves me—I never felt more forlorner
Alone in a corner the whole night long
