Captain Cuppa

Captain Cuppa cried while sailing the sea

"It’s high tide me hearties and high time for tea"

Then he ordered his thirsty, tea-bellied crew

To help him make the mighty brew


They replaced the sea's salt with sugar

The seaweed with tea leaves

And for milk they cracked open every coconut

From every island's coconut trees


Then the captain he harpooned the sun

And when the sea boiled the brew was done

Stirred together in a whirling whirl pool

And a sea breeze helped to make it cool


It was too big to fit in any mug

For the sea weighs many a ton

So they took a swim and drank it in

And soon the sea was gone!
