“Dolphins Always Drink Decaf” is another voice of awareness in the dire state of our planet, a bright and jazzy bite with a tragically serious message. As we all start to realize too late our impact on our environment, and try in vain to minimize damage in natural systems that we will never fully comprehend, we can at least offer our ocean-going mammals the best choice in coffee, from the millions of pieces of plastic garbage floating in all the seas. And, of course, always choose decaf; those dolphins don’t need any more caffeine.


It’s a patch the size of the lone star state
You can probably guess what we just ate
I see everything’s going wrong, but still I sing this song
And hope the nightmare goes away

No one dares swim outside the boats
Bubble packs could slice our throats
Guys we’re in big trouble because no one can live in a bubble
You think it’s gone but there it floats

Coffee pods for the sea
Presents from you and me
La la la la la
Drink it up while we laugh but don’t forget the half and half
Dolphins always drink decaf

They’re counting on help from on high
Believe in the biggest lie
I know this all seems hard
Keep it out of my backyard
But there’s nowhere else that we can hide

We decimate the animals and plants
From the great whale to the smallest ant
We’ve got to stop our assault because this shit is all our fault
We’ve got to speak for those who can’t


Power is with a chosen few
It seems there’s nothing you can do
You just post something on your wall but the power is with us all
If we all speak up, we come right through

Big oil will never give up the fight
They will never ever do what’s right
Never resort to shame
You’re playing their rigged game
So we got to punch out all their lights
