Kinks love TEA

The Kinks – Have a Cuppa Tea
from “Muswell Hillbillies album” – 1972

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.

Chorus:
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
Halleluja, halleluja, halleluja, Rosie Lea
Halleluja, halleluja, halleluja Rosie Lea.

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 it’s a cure for chronic insomnia,
It’s a cure for tonsilitis and for water on the knee.

Chorus

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 sake have a cuppa tea.

Chorus,

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.

Beatles love TEA too

Paul Mccartney– English Tea

Would you care to sit with me
For a cup of English tea?
Very twee, very me
Any sunny morning

What a pleasure it would be
Chatting so delightfully
Nanny bakes fairy cakes
Every Sunday morning

Miles of miles of English garden
Stretching past the willow tree
Lines of hollyhocks and roses
Listen most attentively

Do you know the game croquet?
Peradventure we might play
Very gay, hip hooray
Any sunny morning

Miles of miles of English garden
Stretching past the willow tree
Lines of hollyhocks and roses
Listen most attentively

As a rule the church bells chime
When it’s almost supper time
Nanny bakes fairy cakes
On a Sunday morning

“According to McCartney, Godrich was at times blunt
in his appraisal of McCartney’s songs-in-progress
during the making of Chaos and Creation in the Backyard,
challenging McCartney to get the best out of the music”

Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?

Going to the party?
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?

Redcoats in the village, there’s fighting in the streets
The Indians and the mountain men
Well, they are talking when they meet
The king said, “Had he’s gonna put a tax on tea”
And that’s the reason you all Americans drink coffee

Are you going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)
Going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?

(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)
Going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)

Fire in the mountains, flames upon the heath
And the president spits out the news
He’s biting on wooden teeth
The children of the colonies got a different tale to tell
I’m going down to the city, tell my folks that I’m doing well

Are you going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)
Going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)

Going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)
Going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)

Bringing back the buffalo to the long prairie
Bringing back the fishes swimming in the sea
The children of the colonies got a different tale to tell
Tell my folks that I’m going to the city
Tell them that, I’m doing well

Are you going to the party?
(Are you going)
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)
Going to the party?
(Are you going)
Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)

Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)
Going to the party?
(Are you going)
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
(Are you going to the tea party)

Are you going, are you going?
(Are you going, are you going?)
Are you going, are you going?
Are you going to the party?

Are you going?
Are you going?
Are you going?

Nirvana – Pennyroyal Tea

I’m on my time with everyone
I have very bad posture

I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that’s inside of me
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I’m anemic royalty

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally

I’m so tired I can’t sleep
I’m a liar and a thief
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I’m anemic royalty

I’m on warm milk and laxatives
Cherry flavored antacids

I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that’s inside of me
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I’m anemic royalty

Who loves TEA
