Tea With The Queen Lyrics

Worked hard all my life
To get where I am today
Lived a little, learned a lot
Now I’ve got something I want to say
Was told lies: education will help you
Climb to the top of the ladder
The only thing I ever learned
Take your time on things that matter
Buy a car, find a job
Something to fund your fantasies
Find a wife and settle down
Be happy to the best of your abilities
Buy a house, make a home
Have children, play happy families
But what happens if it all falls down?
Who’s there to pick up the pieces?

Take stock of what you’ve got
Take stock of what you’ve got
Cos you’ll never have tea with the queen
No you’ll never have tea with the queen

Look at those more worse off than you
Lend a hand, make someone smile
Take your time and give to charity
That’s how it feels to be worthwhile
Live beyond the mediocrity
Modern life seems to bring
Take your time and look around you
Open your heart, let it sing

Take stock of what you’ve got
Take stock of what you’ve got
Cos you’ll never have tea with the queen
No you’ll never have tea with the queen
Now I know you know what I mean
Cos you’ll never have tea with the queen
