I heard one yesterday on the Paltalk session sung by Jacko that was pretty good. He said it might be in the DT but if not he will post the lyrics/chords, so keep your eye out for it.

It was about coffee in a proper coffee pot......

this is the chorus of th coffee pot song that I know, as sung by Cosmatheka a comic duo, who did english music hall songs. Sadly one of them died last winter of Flu! No doubt someone will be able to post the rest if not I'll look them up some time this week.

All I want is a proper cup of coffee, Made in a proper copper coffee pot, I might go off my nut, If I cant get a coffee from a proper coffee pot Red coffee pots, black coffee pots there no good to me, If I can't get a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot I'll have a cup of teaer coffe pot

All I want is a proper cup of coffee,
Made in a proper copper coffee pot,

If I cant get a coffee from a proper coffee pot
Red coffee pots,
Black coffee pots
The're no good to me,
If I can't get a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot I'll have a cup of teaer coffe pot

Just testing, and keeping the thread alive until I get round to posting the rest

Dr. Uwe Pohl of Leipzig Germany--yeah the one who made a pet of a big-foot slipper, taught us all this song at the German Institute.
Thanks! I thought I'd never see this again.

But as for the song in the thew thread title, the proper title of the song is "Percolator Twist," and the Harry Fox Agency Songfile.com Website says it was written by "Bideau, Freeman." It appears on several recordings by Billy Joe & The Checkmates, and also on the Walk Don't Run album by the Ventures.
Click here for a YouTube recording by Billy Joe and the Checkmates, and here for the Ventures recording.
Who Wrote That Song (by Dick & Harriet Jacobs) says that "Percolator" (1961) was written by Lou Bideau and Ernie Freeman, popularized by Billy Joe and the Checkmates.
This is an instrumental song on both the Billy Joe and the Checkmates and the Ventures recordings - I found no lyrics. Seems to me that this tune was first in a coffee commercial - am I correct?
