Cup of Tea
Lyrics and Music by Marilyn Rucker Norrod
I had nothing but a fear of you.
All my best friends said "steer clear, dear!"
You were known for being
Prone to overheating
When life dropped the other shoe.
Then I learned you had a broken heart.
Someone left you bleak and bitter.
Left you at your wedding
That must have been upsetting
I could give you a fresh start.
Give it a try!
Why not let that floozy go?
Just forget her
I won't let her
Be more than just a stepping stone to me.
Our love could be almost maintenance free
(Not implying that I'm easy)
Let's just dance together
Then we'll know just whether
I could be your cup of tea.
