The Lyrics

(Teeeeaaaaaa!) We dumped it in the harbor,
The king never should of taxed it from the start.
(Teeeeaaaaaa!) We dressed ourselves like indians,
And snuck aboard their ships just after dark.

Why are those Redcoats here?
Opressing us, with levies that aren't fair?
(Hey!) Taxation is all wrong.
(Hey!) We're better off alone.

(Teeeeaaaaaa!) They devalued all our morals.
Denied us of a voice inside thier courts.
(Teeeeaaaaaa!) They laughed while we were trying,
To claim our independence from The Crown.

Why are those Redcoats here?
Opressing us, with levies that aren't fair?
(Hey!) Taxation is all wrong.
(Hey!) We're better off alone.

And now we know just why they,
Taxed it by the pound. (By the pound)
We need our Tea to sip on,
Cause we won't touch coffee grounds. (Won't touch the grounds)
Cause we love Tea! (Love Tea!)
Need Tea! (Need Tea!)
Want Tea! (Want Tea!)
Yeah! (Yeah!) Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah!-Yeah!-Yeah!-Yeah!-Teeeeaaaaaa!

Why are those Redcoats here?
Opressing us, with levies that aren't fair?
(Hey!) Taxation is all wrong.
(Hey!) We're better off alone.

(Teeeeaaaaaa!) Why are those Redcoats here?
(Teeeeaaaaaa!) They should be out of here!
(Teeeeaaaaaa!) Why are those Redcoats here?
(Teeeeaaaaaa!) They should be out of here!

I'm bumping this one back up. I don't think it was given a fair shot.
