One Lump or Two?

 

When I was a little girl

And not feeling very well

Mummy used to make weak tea

I still remember the sweet smell

"This will help your tummy

And those pains up in your head"

I'll go make the tea

 While you climb up into bed.

It used to taste so yummy

Warm and soothing down my throat

I used to tell the kids at school

Of my sweet weak tea and gloat.

 

As I got a little older

I could not stand that tea

The sweetness was too sickly

Tea was not my cup of tea

 

I had a taste of coffee

It was bitter

 Dark

And strong

 

When I reached my working years

It was for coffee

I would long

We'd all sit in the staff room

Drinking coffee

It was great

Sipping on our caffeine hit

That would keep us all awake

 

So now

When people ask me

Which is the drink for you?

I think back to my weak tea days

And say

Its coffee

 White with two.
