Tommy, you know, he had one deaf ear
Back from his minesweeping days
You never could tell just what he could and could not hear
And he intended to keep it that way

He joined the Navy just like his Daddy done
When he was of the rightful age
He took off right quick like many a kid did
When he parents took hard to the drink

And now it's coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Any time's a good time so go unlock your daughters
With his motorcycle friends, they're going off again
From the Black Sea all the way to Britain
All the way to Britain

She was a dame of New Jersey fame,
Lived her life like it was a bourre game
And if there were sides being taken
You better believe you wanna be on the side she was on

She went to the city for secretary school
Ended up working for the CIA
She had a short hand that didn't suffer no fools
She intended to keep it that way

And she drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Any old time she could any horse she wanted
And if you gonna ride then you ride it like you stole it from a steeple chase

She drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Boys tried to give chase but no one ever caught her
Till she found her love, and Sheila didn't let Tommy sleep for days

Their first meeting was hardly a word
But he built her a harpsichord
And he found her unconscious just inside the door
And carried her to help

Now every now and again
She pretends to faint on the harpsichord bench
And he picks her up again and carries her up to their bed

And they drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Any time's a good time cause now they have a daughter
And she rides so fast, they said they gonna name her Farley

They drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Don't ask what kind, it's just the kind our parents brought us
From the Black Sea shore and the girl next door who could ride

They drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Any times's a good time cause now they have a daughter
And she rides so fast, they said they gonna name her Farley

They drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
Don't ask what kind, it's just the kind our parents brought us
From the Black Sea shore and the girl next door who could ride

    Song MeaningI assumed that the lyric "she rides so fast, they said they gonna name her Farley" is a reference to Walter Farley the author of the Black Stallion novels.
