Imagine Dr. John, George Benson, Prince & Stevie Wonder having a jam session late at night ... and LOTS of coffee!!!


This is a song about a cat I know
some call him eugene and others call him joe
he's a real wild cat, he got big beady eyes
some think he's an alien in disguise

met him on a sunday at the coffee shop
caffes and lattes and we started to talk
when he spoke he got a gleam in his eye
he spoke a strange language i call it alien jive
and he told me . . .

now what he said, it just blew my mind
and before you know it we were all out of time
I said, "eugene, man I got to go!"
he said, "before you leave there's one thing you should know, and he told me . . .

I said eugene man you takin' this too far
got a little something to say to you
but I need my guitar
he said . . . okay, then he let out a sigh
I grabbed my guitar and I kindly replied
I told him . . .

you can give it a try, speak a little alien jive
you can do it
and if you need some caffeine
go and see my friend eugene, he can brew it
yeah he can brew it
