Tea at Fortnum & Masons


Let me put my cards on the table-

But this is not a card table!

No, I had that sort of hunch-

Is it one for things like Lunch?

Depends upon your social standing, Mr. Skinner

This table could be for Luncheon or Dinner

Oh, my social standing has never been thinner-

Then, though its luncheon we’ll call it dinner.

But it’s way past Noon!

It will be high – tea very soon-

Well, now, I dare say, Mr.Skinner, your manners will do for me-

Would you like a cup of Earl Grey tea?
