Eyes of Night Owls

Chorus:
D
Grind
C
chil
dren, D
grind
!  For a C
clear 
and wakeful G
mind
That can D
work 
through the night if we A
please
.
D
Grind
C
chil
dren, D
grind
!  We re preC
serv
ing humanG
kind
,
And we D
each 
have our A
own 
prioriG
ties
.   D

Plant the D
strains 
where it rains,
In the G
moun
tains or the D
plains
,
Where the frost never forms on the A
soil
.
Clear and D
sow
, trim and hoe,
Til red G
cher
ries start to grow.
In three D
years
, reap the A
fruits 
of your D
toil 
.

(Chorus)

Dry each one in the sun.
Crack them open when they re done.
Find two beans:  whitish green when they re ripe.
Roast the seed that you ve freed.
Open fire s all you need.
Turn them slow in a wide metal pipe.

(Chorus)

Turn them  round  til they re browned,
Then you quickly cool them down.
They ll be dark as the bark of a tree.
You can tell just as well
By the dark delicious smell,
Far more rich than you d dreamed it could be.

(Chorus)

Fill a pot.  Get it hot.
Pour it  through the grounds you ve got.
It drips back clear and black as the night.
Drink it up from the cup
As an evening pick-me-up.
Call it  coffee    or  night owl s delight.

(Chorus)
