[Verse 1]
E
Granny's always ravin' and rantin',
                             A
And she's always puffin' and pantin',
          E
And she's always screaming and shouting,
          A      B          E
And she's always brewing up tea.

[Verse 2]
Grandpappy's never late for his dinner,
'Cause he loves his leg of beef,
And he washes it down with a brandy,
And a fresh made cup of tea.

[Pre-Chorus]
E                A   B   A   E   B 
           E
Have a cuppa te-eee-eee-eee-eea, have a cuppa tea,
E                A   B   A   E   B 
           E
Have a cuppa te-eee-eee-eee-eea, have a cuppa tea.

[Verse 3]
If you feel a bit under the weather,
If you feel a little bit peeved,
Take Granny's stand-by potion,
For any old cough or wheeze.

[Verse 4]
It's a cure for hepatitis,
It's a cure for chronic insomnia,
It's a cure for tonsillitis,
And for water on the knee.

[Pre-Chorus]
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea.

[Chorus]
      E           E           E    B     E
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea,
      E           E           E    B     E
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea.

[Bridge]
E                                       A            E
Tea in the morning, tea in the evening, tea at suppertime,
        A                     E
You get tea when its raining, tea when its snowing,
             A        B
Tea when the weathers fine,
        E
You get tea as a mid-day stimulant,
        A             B         E
You get tea with your afternoon tea,
    A                 E
Whatever your ailment or disease,
    A            B            E
For Christ sake, have a cuppa tea.

[Chorus]
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea!

[Verse 5]
Whatever the situation,
Whatever the race or creed,
Tea knows no segregation,
No class nor pedigree.

[Verse 6]
It knows no motivations,
No sect or organization,
It knows no one religion,
No political belief.

[Pre-Chorus] (x2)
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea,
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea.

[Chorus]
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, Oh for Christ sake, have a cuppa tea!
