Give me a cup of cuppa before
I scupper your ship-shape little boat
upon the bilge-blue pirate sea,
you who I adore, or did before
you refused me my cup of cuppatee.
Serve rum to the crew, they know
no better; give juice to the butler
when he hands you my letter;
but for me, oh my love, let it be
a steaming hot cup of cuppatee.
To be continued, maybe,
After I've had a cup of tea.
