Foxtrot From a Play

by W. H. Auden (1907-1973)


The soldier loves his rifle,
The scholar loves his books,
The farmer loves his horses,
The film star loves her looks.
There’s love the whole world over
Wherever you may be;
Some lose their rest for gay Mae West,
But you’re my cup of tea.

Some talk of Alexander
And some of Fred Astaire,
Some like their heroes hairy
Some like them debonair,
Some prefer a curate
And some an A.D.C.,
Some like a tough to treat’em rough,
But you’re my cup of tea.

Some are mad on Airedales
And some on Pekinese,
On tabby cats or parrots
Or guinea pigs or geese.
There are patients in asylums
Who think that they’re a tree;
I had an aunt who loved a plant,
But you’re my cup of tea.

Some have sagging waistlines
And some a bulbous nose
And some a floating kidney
And some have hammer toes,
Some have tennis elbow
And some have housemaid’s knee,
And some I know have got B.O.,
But you’re my cup of tea.

The blackbird loves the earthworm,
The adder loves the sun,
The polar bear an iceberg,
The elephant a bun,
The trout enjoys the river,
The whale enjoys the sea,
And dogs love most an old lamp-post,
But you’re my cup of tea.

Many moons ago, in a shroom and cider -charged jam session in a cottage somewhere in Wales, this masterpiece was recorded. (600k)

That's first on my list of stuff to do next time I'm viewing the world through Hoffman's eyes, play some music. I tried during my first trip but I couldn't deal with the guitar strings warping in and around my fingers, it was all too confusing.

It's "Tea Lady", and ironically the vocalist (we left a SM58 hanging from the ceiling just in case) was the best tea maker I've ever known. She was paying mere lip service to Al (Alison) who had provided the essentials on that particular occasion. I am a sexist. I believe that the top billion tea makers in the world are all women. I believe Gilli Smyth made and makes the best cup of tea in lapsed Christendom. There, I've said it.

To revive this dead thread momentarily, I've switched over from the Evil Bean to the Isthisthe Leaf.
Much as I love the taste of coffee, in all its myriad forms, it does my stomach in. And I'd gotten so spoiled by fancy lattes and gourmet roasts that I could no longer brew my own, I was giving all my hard earned dough to Starbucks.
I've successfully weaned myself onto Twinings Breakfast Tea and Earl Grey, a bit too subtle at first but now I'm appreciating it, i'm a new man.
