TEATIME

    Now to the banquet we press;
    Now for the eggs and the ham;
    Now for the mustard and cress,
    Now for the strawberry jam!

    Now for the tea of our host,
    Now for the rollicking bun,
    Now for the muffin and toast,
    And now for the gay Sally Lunn!

    Now for the muffin and toast,
    And now for the gay Sally Lunn!

    The eggs and the ham, and the strawberry jam!
    The rollicking bun, and the gay Sally Lunn!

    The eggs and the ham, and the strawberry jam!
    The rollicking bun, and the gay Sally Lunn!

    The eggs and the ham, and the strawberry jam!
    The rollicking bun,
    The rollicking bun, and the gay Sally Lunn!
    And the strawberry jam!
    Jam, — Bun,
    Jam, — Bun,
    Oh, the strawberry, strawberry jam,
    Bun ,— Jam,
    Bun ,— Jam,
    Oh, the rollicking, rollicking bun!
     

from ‘The Sorcerer’ (1877)
William Schwenck Gilbert (1836-1911)
