Cuppa with toast in the morning,
Cuppa with biscuits at eleven,
Cuppa with a sandwich for tiffing,
Cuppa with scones and jam and cream
In the olden style of Devon.
Cuppa with my meats at high tea,
Cuppa with my rosemary cake,
Cuppa before bedtime with brandy,
And one more cuppa at half-past-twelve
If I am still awake.
Wherever the hands, whatever the chime,
Around the clock, all day long,
It's always almost-tea-time.
