There was a little girl, who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was good, she was very, very good
But when she was bad, she was homicidal!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Rusty steel syringe… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

One day that little girl may find a filthy metal spike
And drive it right in the middle of your forehead
For she and her friends, this is very, very good
But for you the game is over — this is revolution!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Amputation saw… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

We’ve got the tools, we’ve got the time
To punish a most worthy crime against humanity
Somewhere it’s always time for tea
We’ve been trained by the very best
We think you just might be impressed
Eradicate the enemy
Somewhere it’s always time for…
Revenge is a dish that is best served…NOW!

I am that little girl, I have that little curl
Right in the middle of my forehead
And when I am good, I am very, very good
But when I am bad, I am fucking gorgeous!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Electroshock Machine… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

We’ve got the tools, we’ve got the time
To punish a most worthy crime against humanity
Somewhere it’s always time for tea
We’ve been trained by the very best
We think you just might be impressed
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate
Eradicate
Eradicate
Eradicate
Revenge is a dish that is best served…NOW!

    My InterpretationAs mentioned in my 'Fight Like a Girl' comment, "Time For Tea" continues with the building of the morale for Emilie and the girls in the Asylum.

    This song also gives some minor back story to Emilie and her psychotic behaviors, about how she doesn't seem insane at all, but actually comes off as a cute little girl, but has psychotic episodes that prove otherwise.

    (I'll make further references throughout the album)

    My OpinionI don't really want to go into the song, because I already commented on the storyline on my "Fight Like A Girl" post, but I'm just going to add here that my favourite part of that song was that it used my favourite nursery rhyme "There was a little girl that had a little curl..."
