Parody Song Title:

"Cuppa Tea"

Parody Written by:

Kristof Robertson

The Lyrics

A tribute to the long-standing belief in Britain that, whatever life throws at you, a cup of Earl Gray will help you get through! NB: Tetley and PG (Tips) are UK tea brands.
When I find myself without a girlfriend
She has just walked out on me
Think I'll make myself a...cuppa tea
And in my boss's office
He is speaking of redundancy
I won't hit the bottle...I'll have tea

Cuppa tea, cuppa tea
That's for me, milk and three
Assam anaesthetic...cuppa tea

And when the po-lice tell me that a
Thief has trashed my Ferrari
Though I'm numb I'll offer....them some tea
Through all my trials and tribulations
One thing I can guarantee
You will always find me...drinking tea

Cuppa tea, cuppa tea
From Tetley, or PG
Please don't give me herbal
Makes me pee

Forget about narcotics
Charley, speed, hashish or even "E"
Nothing makes me happy...like my tea
I wake up, get the kettle boiling
Have some Corn Flakes, yessiree!
I can take the world on...after tea

Wounded knee, STD
Lost my key, dog's got flea
Have a cup, remember...
Cest la Vie!!!

And when some naff, pedantic writer
Shows a missed apostrophe
Better have another cup o' tea (c'est la vie)

:-) Sorry, that was a cheap pot-shot, Kristof...

Naff? Pedantic? Harsh words, Mr Alexander. :-) I'll give you the missing apostrophe for the french, but in Oz, it's always "Cuppa"...thanks for the vote, anyway.

Very good parody, Kristof. Is it tea that gives Brits their stiff upper lips?
Royce Miller - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Really good parody, Kristof.

Heehee...very funny, Darling Kristof! But...as if you've ever had a girlfriend walk out on you...honestly. ; ) 555!

Cheers, all! John J: No comment :-)....Royce: thankyou kindly......Arwen: Only once, my elven one, said something about wanting to marry a guy called Marc Anthony (?).....John B: Why did you call me Royce?? :-)

I've always wondered about the Brits and their tea. I just figured if they scalded their mouths often enough it would keep then from being able to taste their awful food! Fabulous job!
Arwen - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL, Ashkicksass!
Phil Alexander - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Yes, Kristof, it was the one in French to which I was referring... "cuppa" is perfectly acceptable, I just didn't write it.

OOh Ash, I see I'm gonna have to defend my adopted country (and don't you encourage her, Miss elf..) :-) Fine words coming from a citizen of a nation that gave the world cheese in a can!! Thanks for the vote, anyway ;-)
Ashkicksass - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Actually, cheese in a can comes from Australia!

(voted earlier) A lovely ode to one of my two favorite beverages! ...and a pleasure to read over my umpteenth cuppa, this morning. :) Nice job, Kristof!
Kristof Robertson - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Ash...YOU LIE!! :-) (omigod, how embarrassing...). Jack- cheers, have one on me. Melhi..now I'm curious: what's the other one?

Almost makes me want to give up Coffee! You really bagged this one, Kristof.

Tea over cornflakes, that could work, much further down the line, hopefully. Good job, Kristoff, 5s!

Too much caffeine, Kristoff--sorry.

Peregrin - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
You got this one down to a TEA, Kristof
Melhi - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Kristof, no big mystery, the other one is coffee -- I usually have a cup of each in front of me.
WARNING! REALLY BAD PUN AHEAD!!!! - June 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Boxing legends Sugar Ray Leonard and Sugar Ray Robinson,along with Basketball great, Kareem-Abdul Jabbar and Hockey Great ,Paul Coffey,have created a sports bar. They are going to call the place "Coffey,with Kareem,and two Sugars "!

I've waited ten years to tell that joke ! There may be no "I" in TEAm ,but there certainly three 5's in this blend,Kris!

Thankyou Johnny, Adagio, Alvin, Mason, Rod, Merry, Martha TPP .and Pip...Melhi- I though it'd be whisky! :-) John B- You're forgiven...And Punster- Very Good!!

Nah, not enough caffeine in whiskey. ;) Seriously, I rarely drink, but on those extremely rare occasions when I do, I like vodka.

Not bad, didn't have me falling off my chair laughing though. Well written, good pacing...decent parody.

(SOTM) My vote stands.....it's still delightful!
EmiLoca - July 12, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Pretty darn funny, Saint Kristof. I think what made it funny was how similar the original song and the parody are in message (you know, don't give up and such), and yet, how much more funny yours is. 5's, and I slap myself for missing this one.

As a Utahn, I must ask: "Tea"? What is this "tea" of which you speak?

Love yer stuff, Fotsirk. Fave lines: "Please don't give me herbal..."

(SOTM) Tea-riffic, a truly soothing parody. 5-4-5 Ashkicksass: With me in the country, is it any surprise that Australia makes cheese- in-a-can? Then again, after reading Melhi's 'Can' parody, that doesn't sound so tasty...
