Tea & Sympathy / お茶と同情

作曲Janis Ian
I don't want to ride
the milk train anymore
I'll go to bed at nine
and waken with the dawn
and lunch at half past noon
Dinner prompt at five
The comfort of a few old friends
long past their prime

Pass the tea and sympathy
for the good old days long gone
We'll drink a toast to those
who most believe in what they've won
It's a long, long time 'til morning
plays wasted on the dawn
and I'll not write another line
for my true love is gone

When the guests have done
I'll tidy up the rooms
I'll turn the covers down
and gazing at the moon
will pray to go quite mad
and live in long ago
when you and I were one
So very long ago

Pass the tea and sympathy
for the good old days long gone
We'll drink a toast to those
who most believe in what they've won
It's a long, long time 'til morning
plays wasted on the dawn
and I'll not write another line
for my true love is gone

When I have no dreams
to give you any more
I'll light a blazing fire
and wait within the door
and throw my life away
"I wonder why" they all will say
And now I lay me down to sleep
forever and a day

Pass the tea and sympathy
for the good old days are dead
We'll drink a toast to those who best
survived the life they've led
It's a long, long time 'til morning
so build the fires high
And now I lay me down to sleep
forever by your side
