La LA La LA
I heard the milky whistling across the street
See the posty dancing in front of me
You went away illogic came to stay
My cup of tea doesn't taste the same when she's with me
If you have a reason write it on a postcard
Stick it in a box but you deliver me
it's not that I don't trust it it's just a cup of tea
I think she smashed around I think it's LSD
