Affogato, with Wild (Draft)

about

Devastatingly pun-heavy, adjective-loitering, thunderpancrashing, hyena-sniggering, coffee-based beverage of a story, sprung from the the freezers of a Brighton ice cream parlour, and since oft-heard spiralling recklessly from a window near Roman road in London.

lyrics

Verse 1
I was sitting in a café in Roman road,
When all of a sudden an aroma rose!!
Noses fell off in pure delight.
Tongues licked lips without respite..
Teeth swooned DREAMING of just one bite…
Just one bite, just one bite!! **

Oh! It was a crazy sight!

CHORUS:
I won’t forget you
Sweet Affogato
DOWN the river of love we sailed
In your glass bateau!
Who could forget you!
Sweet Affogato!
We’ll drink up all your mystery
With a bitter/bit o' gateau!

Verse 2
A storm broke out..
We were soaked to the bone..
Landed on an island all alone..
Sent smoke signals got them all WRONG!
The scent of hyenas is really strong!
Hope that help doesn’t take too long…
To pass the time I will sing this song..!

CHORUS:
I won’t forget you
Sweet Affogato
DOWN the river of love we sailed
In your glass bateau!
Who could forget you!
Sweet Affogato!
We’ll drink up all your mystery
With a bitter/bit o' gateau!

Verse 3
The rescue plane exploded blew us to the moon!
I shook of all the dust and then I asked for a spoon.
A (insert adjective here) voice said, “You speak too fast!
Cutlery’s a language of the past!
To my surprise YOU sprang out of a glass!
AFFOGATO I am home at last!

CHORUS:
I won’t forget you
Sweet Affogato
DOWN the river of love we sailed
In your glass bateau!
Who could forget you!
Sweet Affogato!
We’ll drink up all your mystery
With a bitter/bit o' gateau!
