coffee cantata

The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra with Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht ("Be still, stop chattering") (aka The Coffee Cantata) BWV 211, a cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach between 1732 and 1734. One of the early lines is:
If I can't drink my bowl of coffee three times daily, then in my torment I will shrivel up like a piece of roast goat.

And of course after your coffee you can sing with Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, James Brown, Fats Domino and B.B.King - I Feel Good
