for all you tea drinkers

Post by timbobarnacle »

TEA FEVER (sincere apologies to John Masefield)

I must get up for my tea again, for a cup of tea, or I'll die
And all I want is a tall cup, and a spoon to stir it by
And the Tetley kick from the tea bags squeezing
And a contented grin from a grey face unfreezing

I must get up for my tea again, for the call of the kettle boiled
Is a welcome call and a clear call, and cannot be ignored
And all I ask is for a single tea bag, with leaves clear and flowing
And the cup full and the tea red hot in need of blowing
And the ghastly tea monster no longer groaning

I must get up for my tea again, to where the tea drinking's rife
To the one cup way, and the one pot way, where tea drinking is Life
And all I ask is a bubbling kettle kept hot by another tea lover
And a quiet day, and a sweet day, once the tea drinking's over

These lyrics have moved me ( toward the kettle if nothing else!) May I have permission to perform them in public?

Regards
