One More Cup of Tea


Oh, one more cup of tea and then I'll do some work
Just one more wander to the kitchen
Then I'll settle down and work

But no... there's no motivation in me at all
No, there's no reason to be here
Just waiting for the weekend now

I used to love to work
To work hard and learn
Impress the bosses, raise my salary
Make a difference, make some money

But no... there's no motivation in me at all
No, there's no reason to bother anymore
This is just time that's bided

I don't want to be here
I don't want to work
I just want to go out and drink myself to death
Where there are people who could conceivably love me
But I go out, and drink myself close to death
And there are no people who could conceivably love me

So just one more cup of tea and then I'll do some work
Just one more wander round the office
And then I swear I'll do some work

But no... there's no drive in me to work
No, there's no reason to want to try
This is just time that isn't mine

Just waiting for the weekend now
This is just time that's bided
This is just time that isn't mine...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
