I take a pill every day
To make me think in an acceptable way
I wash it down with a cup of tea
My tiny ritual’s important to me

I live 7 minutes away from town
Sometimes the proximity gets me down
The implication that I’m a lazy guy
If I’d rather sit here and watch things go by

I need my cup of tea
It’s important to me
If I don’t get my cup of tea
I don’t think you’ll like what you see

I like my sandwiches a certain way round
If I eat them sideways I can’t keep them down
And though it looks like my life’s filled with difficulty
My system works just fine for me.
