Bring us in Hot Tea

Bring us in no rum, for that's a drink for sailors
But bring us in hot tea, for that will never fail us.
So bring us in hot tea, hot tea, and bring us in hot
tea
That's what the blessed ladies make, so bring us in
hot tea.

Bring us in no cider, for that will send us reeling
But bring us in hot tea, Earl Gray, Ceylon or
Darjeeling.

Bring us in no white wine, for that don't cure no hot
thirst
But bring us in hot tea, and be sure to warm the pot
first.

Bring us in no snaps, for they are made with brandy
But bring us in hot tea, and a strainer would be
handy.

Bring us in no gin, for that was mother's ruin
But bring us in hot tea, and put a lump or two in.

Bring us in no home brew, we're not inclined to risk
it
But bring us in hot tea, oh, and all right, just one
biscuit.

We'll drink no beer at Christmas, the good book tells
the tale
But bring us in hot tea, for the angels said, "no
ale."
