I wake up with the sunrise
Rise and shine is but a lie
Lie down again before I even see
See cakes freshly baked for me,

He’s tender but I’m thinking
King you aren’t inviting me
Means I would never, ever brew
Brew ourselves a tea for two.

Such a precious toy
Boy, you’ll be my foil
Hang on, hold on, wait on
Til I decide whether,
To pretend I’m not
I’ll share my teapot
On a Sunday morning
With a stranger hanging
‘Round my property.

I wake up with the sunrise
Rise and shine is but a lie
Lie my bed is my oven middle name
Name and shame me,
please, please me.

You take me for your new queen
Queen cakes are beyond your means,
means that I’ll never ever, ever brew ourselves a tea for two

Such a precious toy
Boy you’ll be my foil
Hang on, hold on, wait on Til I decide whether
To pretend I’m not
I’ll share my teapot
On a Sunday morning
With a stranger hanging ‘round my property

No sugar, no coffee, no ice-tea, no tv, no icecream,
just a tea,
Stir your milk up and sit down, please. X 7


(refrain : Such a precious toy, Boy you’ll be my foil, On a Sunday morning)
((refrain : Just a circus toy, Boy you’ll be my foil, on a Sunday morning))
(((refrain : I wake up in the morning)))

    General CommentShe is singing about an affair or one night stand. She sings that the she wakes up with the sunrise and that rise and shine is a lie. That means that there is no feeling, only a desire to leave and not have to lie about feeling any "shine" in this situation. She'll certainly never make tea for this person - that would require too much interaction. In fact, she'd be more likely to make tea for a stranger - partly because she make the boundaries very clear in that situation.
