My, my, my it’s a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Where a man can still be free (or a woman if you are one)
I like swimming in the sea.

My my my it’s a beautiful world
I like drinking Irish tea
With a little bit of lapsang souchong
I like making my own tea.

My my my it’s a beautiful world
I like driving in my car
Roll the top down sometimes I travel quite far
Drive to the ocean stare up at the stars
I like driving in my car

All around is anger, automatic guns
It’s death in large numbers, no respect for women or our little ones
I tried talking to Jesus but He just put me on hold
Said He’d been swamped by calls this week
And He couldn’t shake His cold

And still this emptiness persists
Perhaps this is as good as it gets
When you’ve given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes
Now I leave the party early at least with no regrets
I watch the sun as it comes up I watch it as it sets
Yeah this is as good as it gets.

My my my it’s a beautiful world
I like sleeping with Marie
She is one sexy girl full of mystery
She says she doesn’t love me but she likes my company
For now that’s good enough for me

My favorite tea time song actually mentions tea!

Cake Bake Betty- 64 Little White Things

“Come and get me out of this town; oh now
come and save me.
Come and rescue me from this giant hotel full of bones and babies.

Take a look at yourself,
a look that will sell.
Call your aunt about the tea she abandoned.
Yeah, well she placed him in a can in canned ’em.

It’s the same as any day now
except your teeth are falling out and you’re going upstairs.
Yeah, you’re going upstairs.
It’s an upstairs harmony
and when you get there you can write a song to keep you company.

There are good things;
there are good things to eat
and tonight we’re eating meat-
goody! goody! goody!
There’s a couple of things
I should tell you about
that the f*****rs wouldn’t sell
‘cause they’re too cheap to tell.
It’s the men who feed on human beings
and they dawdle about
with their bellies hanging out.
You can wash your fingers,
but they never leave.
You can bite your tongue,
but it turns them on.
And when you’re ready to go
they’ll pinch at your sides
and they’ll make you recite
brilliant songs about the symphony.

I hate this
and I hate their trees
and their yards that they wrap with and their plastics and greens
and their white houses
and god d**n white teeth
and the chemical stress on the hair that they squeeze
I hate their sex
and the brats that they breed
and the air that they breathe
and they hated me,
and they hated me,
and they hated me,
and they hated me,
and they hated me…

Well then they ate me
and then they ate me
and they thought I was tasty,
thought I was tasty,
thought I was tasty.
