With my coffee in the morning to start my day

Sometimes I need to give it that little extra

Not by adding more sugar, or flavored creamer

But to Irish it up as they use to say

A wee bit of whiskey as an eye opener

To put a perspective on my day

Can't Irish up my coffee at work

Even though I could sneak a dram with me

But for my evening coffee

A bit of the barley in my dark roast

To smooth the events of the human race

Should cut back on the caffeine and increase the whiskey.
