An apple a day keeps the doctor away

But a cup of tea is better

Can’t wait for it to reach my lips

Drink, taste and savor


Everyone should have a cup each day

For you will feel much pleasure

Greatness comes from such a little bag

Here, here pour me another


I am staring down enjoying my friend

Joyous overflows

Kettle whistling once again

Loving the tooting meander


Maybe I will share you now but

Never with a foe

Oh little cup of tea I adore

Please stay a little longer


Queens and kings have drank you too

Righteous as they are

Sipping your sweet bouquet of delights

Tiaras all around


Until we meet again and cheer

Vigil I will wait

Waning and waxing moon won’t keep

X marks the spot


Yes I love my cup of tea,

            It brings me so much pleasure

Zippy, zeal and zealous I feel

            Whenever we do meet
