Granny's always ravin' and rantin'
And she's always puffin and pantin'
And she's always screamin' and shoutin'
And she's always brewin' up tea

Grand pappy's never late for his dinner
'Cause he loves his leg of beef
And he washes it down with a brandy
And a fresh made cup of tea

Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea

If you feel a bit under the weather
If you feel a little bit peeved
Take granny's standby potion
For any old cough or wheeze

It's a cure for hepatitis
It's a cure for chronic insomnia
It's a cure for tonsillitis
And for water on the knee

Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea

Tea in the morning, tea in the evening, tea at suppertime
You get tea when it's raining, tea when it's snowing
Tea when the weathers fine
You get tea as a mid-day stimulant

You get tea with your afternoon tea
For any old ailment or disease
For Christ sake have a cuppa tea

Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea

Whatever the situation, whatever the race or creed
Tea knows no segregation, no class nor pedigree
It knows no motivations, no sector organization
It knows no one religion nor political belief

Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, rosie lea
