I'll Take My Coffee Black


I'll take my coffee black
Sweet'ner by the pack
On breakfast I don't slack
More than just a snack
Pancakes by the stack
Flipping takes a knack
Syrup is a fact
Did someone mention plaque
Put the butter back
No cream alas-alack
I'll take my coffee black.

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
