Teabag Sucker Lyrics

OK. Who want’s what?
Normali-tea, Banali-tea, Mediocri-tea... I’ll have Novel-tea
Make mine Superiori-tea!
Hey you! Teabag sucker
don’t you know the black tea plucker
works all day to pay his way by plucking tea for you and me.
That’s right, TEA teabag sucker... sucker sucker!
TEA brother plucker ... plucker plucker!
I said, You think tea is British, yeah yeah that’s true.
Iraqis and Sri Lankans, they think that too.
And by the way if you’re Yank, and it’s tea that you drank, then you sank it,
you can thank it for your country’s liber-TEA teabag sucker!
Liber-TEA brother plucker! Some for me?
That’s right, TEA teabag sucker...
TEA brother plucker ...
The Chinese had it first, Japanese then got the thirst.
The Portuguese, prayed on their knees ‘til Chinese coffers burst.
Then the Dutch got in the act, but the Brits secured a pact
causing grief through o-pi-um calami-TEA
TEA-time. How sublime. Just ignore its links with crime.
Smuggling drugs and pantomime are no concern of yours or mine.
It’s someone-else’s immorali-TEA teabag sucker... (x2)
TEA brother plucker
Liber-TEA. Liberty brother plucker! Some for me?...
In India they grew the tea for English Lords and Ladies free.
Then Ceylon was brought on board and English Breakfast tea was poured
in young Australia way down under.
And it isn’t any wonder that the tea plant made its way into Java and Malay,
into Persia, Papua, Panama, Bombay.
Now grown in Argentina, Kenya, Zambia, Peru, Madagascar, Taiwan and Georgia TOO.
Grown for YOU teabag sucker
Thanking YOU brother plucker
WHO? YOU brother plucker YOU!
Some think chai is most appealing, some will only drink Darjeeling
others like tea fresh and green, or ancient pu’er is their scene…
But the message that we’re making, is there’s TEA there for your taking
in an endless choice of great varie-TEA teabag sucker
Have some TEA, mother plucker from a pot, nice and hot
or with ice is also nice…
And  just remember all you teabag suckers
the green and black tea pluckers
working all day to make their way by plucking TAY for you O.K.?
TAY from the saucer suckers, TAY saucer suckers!
TAY brother plucker pluckers TAY!
… I say!
Nice and hot!
Tea! Tea!
