Subject: Folklore: Let's Have Another Cup of Coffee

Hi All,

It's a very long shot folks, but this Irving Berlin song - does anyone know if it ever became popular in England, and if so, does it appear in the repertoire of any source singers? I would imagine the subject matter is too specific to the American depression for this to be the case, but Glenn Miller covered it, with altered, non-specific lyrics, so it's not beyond the bounds of possibility. Any info gratefully received...

Thanks,
P

Interesting to note that the back cover of the depression-time sheet music had advertisements for Irving Berlin stock.
Copyright 1932, the song is under copyright.

I would also be interested in the answer.

I think it was Nescafe who used the song as an advert jingle in the 1950s or '60s. "Let's have another cup of coffee; let's have a cup of Nescafe."

Hmmm, I don't remember that Nescafe jingle, but I remember a non-dairy coffee creamer called "Pream" using "You're the Cream in My Coffee" (Lyrics and Music by B.G. De Sylva, Lew Brown and Ray Henderson - Originally published in 1923), changing the lyric to "You're the Pream in My Coffee".

I have a midi-karaoke file of the song that was sequenced by Dr. James Pitt-Payne of London, UK. It is playable with the free VanBasco player that can be downloaded from www.vanbasco.com

I will send it to anyone who who requsts it free of charge. Just PM me with your e-mail address.

I definitely remember the Nescafe jingle. The Pream one, too. (The stuff we carry around in our heads. . . jeez).

Can't say I worry too much about Nestle/Nescafe's finances, but I wonder how much they paid Irving Berlin for the rights to the song...

I remember this song being featured on the old "Garry Moore Show" (American TV show of the 50's and early 60's - had Durward Kirby as the sidekick, and had Carol Burnett as a regular for a number of years, her big debut as I recall). They would sing the song, and when they got to the end of the chorus ("...and let's have another piece of pie"), someone would get a pie in the face.

Now that's entertainment!

Don

The Nescafe variant was heavily featured on WOR in the 150's and 60's.
