Cappuccino in the Morining

Words and Music by Colin Ward

Up on the fourth floor, ain't got no car,
I don't care, not going very far,
The steps are steep and the flights are long,
Doesn't matter to me, espresso's dark and strong

The bells are ringing, that time again,
A church on every corner, helps you remember when,
It's time to get up and start another day,
A glass of Orangina, the San Lorenzo way

Cappuccino in the morning, gelato after dark,
Raven haired women, strolling in the park,
No pictures on their skin, don't need no tattoo,
Darkest of eyes. looking back at you,
They're wondering why, we do what we do.

House wine is Chianti,
No need to sniff the cork,
Garlic wafting through the air,
Lasagna on my fork,

Cappuccino in the morning, gelato after dark,
Raven haired women, strolling in the park,
No pictures on their skin, don't need no tattoo,
Darkest of eyes. looking back at you,
They're wondering why, we do what we do.

Everything around us looks 500 years old,
Statues on the plaza, the silver and the gold,
They're living their history, do they need something new?
Not prisoners of the past, just the San Lorenzo view

Cappuccino in the morning, gelato after dark,
Raven haired women, strolling in the park,
No pictures on their skin, don't need no tattoo,
Darkest of eyes. looking back at you,
They're wondering why, we do what we do.
