Story behind the song
As a secretary for the Chicago Appellate Defenders, Iris Rivera refused to make the coffee and was fired.
Lyrics
On the 3rd of February 1/2 a century ago, The Appellate Defenders in windy Chicago Thought making coffee was a duty that women did for men Cause men were just too busy.. their time too valuable for them Oh you want me for my shorthand, 60 words a minute when I type Attention to each detail, you never hear me gripe Im on time with my arrival and stay a little late Your every day survival isnt coffee that I make. Oh she didnt make the coffee, didnt make his mornin brew. Doin her 9 to 5 was enough for her to do Not in her job description, tho it showed up in his diction Getting coffees not the way, she was workin for her pay There should be no indication of coffee with dictation Will be some trouble brewin if his coffee shes a doin No barista secretary, not to be adversary But they ended her employment because of her annoyment Oh she didnt make the coffee, didnt make his morning brew Doin her 9 to 5 was enough for her to do Not in her job description, tho it showed up in his diction Getting coffees not the way, she was workin for her pay So Chicago secretaries protested at their door (with) coffee grounds and instructions speci-fi-cal-ly for And the Appellate Defenders brought Iris back to work And they learned to make the coffee; These defenders of the perq Oh she didnt make the coffee, ddnt make his morning brew Doin her 9 to 5 was enough for her to do Not in her job description, tho it showed up in his diction Getting coffees not the way, she was workin for her pay
