Sumatra!

With sincere apologies to Messrs. Bernstein and Sondheim, the following is set to the tune of “Maria!”  (original is © 1956, 1957 Amberson Holdings LLC and Stephen Sondheim) from West Side Story.

Sumatra!

The most wonderful mot for a cup of Joe.

Sumatra!

Sumatra! Sumatra! Sumatra!
Sumatra! Sumatra!

Su – ma - tra!

I just had a cup of Sumatra
What a bold, fulfilling taste!
A single drop I will not waste – today!

Sumatra!
I cannot stop drinking Sumatra!
As rich as life can be,
It warms every part of me, I say!

Sumatra!
Drink it fast and you’re nearly sinful,
Drink it slow and your mouth will always be grinful…

Sumatra!
I’ll never stop drinking Sumatra…
