NICE CUP OF TEA, A From the London Musical "Home And Beauty" (1937) (Music: Henry Sullivan / Lyrics: A.P. Herbert) Binnie Hale (London Production) - 1937 Gracie Fields - 1937 Joe Loss & His Orch. (vocal: Chick Henderson) - 1937 As recorded by Gracie Fields: I like a nice cup of tea in the morning, For to start the day, you see! And at half past eleven, Well my idea of heaven Is a nice cup of tea! I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner, And a nice cup of tea with my tea, And when it's time for bed, There's a lot to be said For a nice cup of tea! Some folks put much reliance On politics and science; There's only one hero for me! Its praise we should be roaring, The man who thought of pouring The first boiling water onto tea! I like a nice cup of tea in the morning, For to start the day, you see! And at half past eleven, Well my idea of heaven Is a nice cup of tea! I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner, And a nice cup of tea with my tea, And when it's time for bed, There's a lot to be said For a nice cup of tea! I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner, And a nice cup of tea with my tea, And when it's getting late, Almost anything can wait For a nice cup of tea! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2013) ******************** As recorded by BINNIE HALE: Some folks put much reliance On politics and science There's only one hero for me His praise we should be roaring The man who thought of pouring The first boiling water onto tea I like a nice cup o' tea in the morning For to start the day, you see And at 'alf past eleven Well my idea of 'eaven is a nice cup o' tea I like a nice cup o' tea with me dinner And a nice cup o' tea with me tea And when it's time for bed There's a lot to be said for a nice cup o' tea You can talk about your science And your airships in the sky I can do without the wireless And you'll never see me fly The public benefactor Of the universe for me Is the genius that thought of Pouring water onto tea I like a nice cup o' tea in the morning For to start the day, you see And when I set the breakfast things Well, my idea of sin is a fourth or a fifth cup o' tea I like a nice cup o' tea with me dinner And a nice cup o' tea with me tea And when it's time for bed There's a lot to be said for a nice cup o' tea They say it's not nutritious But still it is delicious And that's all that matters to me It turns your meat to leather But let's all die together The one drink in Paradise is tea I like a nice cup o' tea in the morning For to start the day, you see And at 'alf past eleven Well my idea of 'eaven is a nice cup o' tea I like a nice cup o' tea with me dinner And a nice cup o' tea with me tea And when it's time for bed As I think I may 'ave said, I'd like a nice cup o' tea You can talk about your liberties They talk of women's rights I don't want to make no speeches 'Cause the one that does is fired And anyone can 'ave me toast And chuck it in the sea But golly, there'd be trouble If they tried to touch me tea I like a nice cup o' tea with me dinner And a nice cup o' tea with me tea And when it's getting late Almost anything can wait for a nice cup o' tea (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2013)
