Coffee Song – Frank Sinatra

22 May

The Coffee Song” (occasionally subtitled “They’ve Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Brazil“) is a novelty song written by Bob Hilliard and Dick Miles, first recorded by Frank Sinatra in 1946.

The song caricatures Brazil‘s coffee surplus, claiming (among other things) that no other beverages are available, and that a politician’s daughter was fined for drinking water. Snowclones on this phrase have been used in analyses of the coffee industry,[1][2][3] and of the Brazilian economy and culture.[4][5][6][7]

Sinatra re-recorded the song in 1960 for his inaugural Reprise release, Ring-a-Ding-Ding!
