O Blessed, Holy Caffeine Tree!

Mp3 File (Courtesy of the Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea Singers):


Go ahead; sing along. 🙂

(This mp3 is a lower-sampling-rate version of the one at the Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea link above.)

Note: the word transposition (“dear-blessed”) in verse 2 as performed by Christine and her compadres is NOT their fault. Notice the same error was in the copy above (and was kept that way for several years in order to demonstrate that they faithfully reproduced MY mistake in transcription). I have recently corrected the text in the chart, but it was once–erroneously–as sung by Christine and pals.

Oh, and here’s another verse, not included in the verses above:

O Blessed Holy Caffeine Tree,
In gratitude I sing of thee,
For all the ways you give life zest,
O Caffeine Tree, you are the best!

Update: Perri Nelson linked in with a post describing The Caffeine Curve and… I accidentally nuked his trackback (because I’ve NOT HAD ENOUGH COFFEE TODAY!!!). Important information you need to know. Go. Read. Be enlightened!

  1. Where’s Garrison Keillor? No doubt off somewhere commenting on the Lutheran Coffee Sacrament and extolling the virtues of a community where all the children are heirs of “no child gets ahead” (NCLB) AKA, Lake Wobegone, where all the children are above average…


  2. An old high school friend (!) posted this comment on his Facebook Status…

    Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
    It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
    It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
    It restoreth my buzz:
    It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name’s sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
    I will fear no Equal For thou art with me;
    thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The the whole bean freshly ground by thee,
    Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
    Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
    And I will dwell in the House of Java forever.

    I fixed a bit of spelling, but that’s all…

    1. See? I just knew O Blessed Holy Caffeine Tree had other scriptural basis than the discovery that the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” was the one and only decaffeinated coffee tree…
