have a cuppa tea lyrics – great big sea

“have a cuppa tea”

granny’s always ravin’ and rantin’,
and she’s always puffin and pantin’,
and she’s always screaming and shouting,
and she’s 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,

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 hepat*tis its a cure for chronic insomnia,
it’s a cure for tonsillitis and for water on the knee.

have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah rosie lea!
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah rosie lea!

[accordion solo]

tea in the morning, tea in the evening, tea at suppertime.
you get tea when its raining, tea when its snowing,
tea when the weathers fine!
you get tea as a mid-day stimulant,
you get tea with your afternoon tea.
whatever your ailment or disease,
for christ sake have a cuppa tea.

hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah rosie lea!
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah rosie lea!

whatever the situation whatever the race or creed,
tea knows no segregation, no cl*ss nor pedigree,
it knows no motivations, no sect or organization,
it knows no one religion,
no political belief!

have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah rosie lea!
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah rosie lea!
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah rosie lea!
hallelujah, hallelujah, oh for christ sake have a cuppa tea!
