Way Over There In Britain

Way over there in Britain

The English are so British

Completely over smitten

With tea they find delicious


Can’t imagine reading Chaucer

Without ritually sipping

Tea in cup and saucer

Their English way of tripping


Even during sex-ing

They have sipping interludes

That non-Brits would find vexing

For their sexy gals and dudes



There’s got to be a better way

But they haven’t found it yet

So sipping tea is here to stay

For the ritual British set

Well really, what can say? Except I raise my little pinky to you both, as I drink my cup of tea of course :-)

I hate tea,
but love your prose.

Sipping tea is a delight
A kind of British right
We prefer to settle
Disputes over a cuper

Even those from afar liveing
Now hear
Have found inviteing those who
Are noisy , threatening in porcher
To sit down have a nice cup of tea
Bisects supplyde

Well when sexing
Got ter take a tea brake
At half time
Never do to go whole sixty seconds
With out a brake
Never know out old lady may have a head ack

Over in Ameraikey
They prefer coffy
Tend to use a fork no knife when at dinner

Chaucer , dear man , our first bard
Wrote bourdy tails , rather rude
Pure filth , the puritans may well say ,
Well we limeys like it!

Men dressed as woman , for comic afeckde
At Christmas pantomime , are our thing
We call then pantos , fore short
Woman play the parts of the leadins man
Courting a woman
Men play old dragons kind of woman
Well it works for us!

Now I need a nice cup of tea ;)


Buiochas le Dia! I'm Irish!:)

(Thank God i'm irish!)
