A little ukulele song I wrote about the wonders of a cup of tea.


You're in over your head
Your concentration is dead
This deadline's got you stressing like mad
Just take a deep breath
You'll get out of this mess
I won't lie and tell you it's not so bad
But I can say

A cup of tea makes your problems seem smaller
A cup of tea makes the cold seem warmer
Gives you strength to try it all again
You can do it
With tea and a friend

It's been raining all day
Clouds just won't go away
Umbrellas don't help when there's such a gale
You arrive in a huff
I see that you've had enough
I sit you down before you start to wail
Put the kettle on
