TEA AND SYMPATHY (Janis Ian) Janis Ian I don't want to ride The milk train anymore I'll go to bed at nine And waken with the dawn Have lunch at half passed noon Dinner prompt at five The comfort of a few old friends Long passed their prime. Pass the tea and sympathy For the good ol' days long gone Let's drink a toast to those who most Believe in what they want It's a long, long time 'til mornin' Lays wasted on the dawn I'll not write another line For my true love is gone. When the guest have done I'll tidy up the room I'll turn the covers down And gazing at the moon I'll pray to go quite mad And live in long ago Where you and I were once So very long ago. Pass the tea and sympathy For the good ole'days long gone Let's drink a toast To those who most Believe in what they want It's a long, long time 'til morning Lays wasted on the dawn I'll not write another line For my true love is gone. When I have no dreams To give you anymore I'll lite a blazing fire And wait within the door And throw my life away "I wonder why?", they all will say Now I lay me down to sleep Forever and a day. Pass the tea and sympathy For the good ol' days are dead Let's drink a toast to those who best surrvived the life they've led It's a long, long time 'til mornin' So build your fires high Now I lay me down to sleep Forever by your side.
