The Lyrics

You wonder how many types of tea could be green
You know there's many but less than seventeen
But when you raise your arm
It threatens you with harm
And you could tell the sea is alarmed
'Cause we spilled the tea, yeah tea, spillin'

Swilled some bitter tea
'Specially buy the condescending kind baby
Sip some bitter tea
See a lot a people who dance with glee

You smiled when he got tough and counted the names
Lots of chattering jest
But they're all the same
A place they all call home and none of them alone

And the fantasy lives on
Keep brewin' tea, yeah tea
Delusions livin' on
Swillin’ that tea, yeah tea, sippin'
Brew some bitter tea
You got a lot of time, have a juicebox, baby
Make mine bitter tea
So come and take your time and watch it steam

A place where they can roam and they call it their home
And we'll be lookin' on
And playin' that game of song
Brew some tea, sippin'

Have some bitter tea
And put another rhyme in the teapot baby
We love bitter tea
So come and get in line and dance for tea

(Repeat until whenever)
