Black coffee, the African queen
Part of the Afro-American dream
I’m diggin’ intellect
Appreciate the fact that you never miss a step
The backbone of the black bone here’s to ya
As long as I’m around believe me none could ever do ya
You warm, considerate, and far from a softie
And that’s why I love ya, you’re my black coffee

Kollege Kidds sound off on this topic.
