lyrics

Have you ever wondered why I turn away or just try to ignore you?
Have you ever wondered why you feel the need to try to cause me pain?

It’s good and it’s nice and it’s kind
To refrain

Did your mother never tell you not to rant and rave and stamp and storm through?
Did your father never tell you not to break a heart and run away?

You lie and you cheat and betray
And you pay

And oh, they should have told you
That it’s not nice
And it’s not kind
It’s not polite

So I hold the door
And I bow and let you walk through
Tea is all laid out
Dainties on a silver tray

The peaches are lovely this year
So they say

Little finger out
As I sip and watch and wonder
At the way you slouch
And the way you slurp your tea

By teatime tomorrow it won’t
Bother me

And oh, they should have told you
That it’s not nice
And it’s not kind
It’s not polite

Watch the minute hand
As it crawls around the clock face
In the hotel room
Where she sits and sighs and waits

Did nobody tell you it’s rude
To be late?

And oh, they should have told you
That it’s not done
It just won’t do
It’s not polite
