Less a drink, more a way of life

[examples being Tom Kirby & my Mum]

Grannys always ravin and rantin, and shes always puffin and pantin,
And shes always screamin and shoutin, and shes always brewing up tea.

Grandpappy's never late for his dinner, cos he loves his leg of beef.
And he washes it down with a brandy, and a fresh made cup of tea.

Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lee
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lee

If you feel a bit under the weather, if you feel a little bit peeved,
Take granny's stand-by potion, for any old cough or wheeze.
It's a cure for hepatitis its a cure for chronic insomnia,
It's a cure for tonsilitis and for water on the knee.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lee

Tea in the morning, tea in the evening, tea at supper time,
You get tea when it's raining, tea when it's snowing, tea when the weather's fine,
You get tea as a mid-day stimulant, you get tea with your afternoon tea,
For any old ailment or disease, for Christ's sake have a cuppa tea.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lee

Whatever the situation whatever the race or creed,
Tea knows no segregation, no class nor pedigree
It knows no motivations, no sect or organisation,
It knows no one religion, nor political belief.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lee
