about

I wrote this song to remind me of good times talking with my Dad over a cup of tea, before he passed away. The conversation hasn't stopped I just need to put the kettle on...

lyrics

Cup of Tea

And We'll start talking 'bout weather
Then working to the end of my tether
And course the daily family drama
There’s always something, Oh what a palaver!

Let's have a cup of tea
And we’ll drink to you and me
Then you'll ask me what d'ya know
About what's his face and so and so
Let's have a cup of tea
Let's have a cup of tea

And of course we’ll reminisce
Through our rose tinted memory bliss
Of triumphs that to some were small
We felt like winners who had won it all

Let's have a cup of tea
And we’ll drink to you and me
Then you'll ask me what d'ya know
About what's his face and so and so
Let's have a cup of tea
Let's have a cup of tea

Some say I'm talking to myself
And it’s not too good for my mental health
Well for me I know that isn't true
‘caus brew I in hand I still feel close to you

So...

Let's have a cup of tea
And we’ll drink to you and me
Then you'll ask me what d'ya know
About what's his face and so and so

So let's have a cup of tea
The drink that makes us so happy
And we'll brew in a big pot
Cause we love to chin wag a lot

Let's have a cup of tea
Let's have a cup of tea

milk and two sugars please ;)
