Tea Shanty

Tea Shanty
(David Diamond)
 I dreamed I had a cup of tea,
      Tea-bags, tea bags away my John!
 The way that cuppas used to be
      Tea-bags away!

 Go lass, and put the kettle on.
      Tea-bags, tea-bags away my John!
           Don't let the water boil too long.
       Tea-bags away!

           And don't forget to warm the pot,
      Tea-bags, tea-bags away my John!
 I won't drink tea if it's not hot.
      Tea-bags away!

 The tea we had when I was young
      Tea-bags, tea-bags away my John!
 Was twice as good, three times as strong.
      Tea-bags away!

 Now pour the tea, but what is this?
      Tea-bags, tea-bags away my John!
 You call this tea? It tastes like ....!
             Tea-bags, away!
 (To the tune of 'Lowlands Away'.)
