Sitting at a local park, gazing at a tree;
feeding pigeons bagel crumbs - sipping on some tea.

The scent of orange pekoe simmers in the air.
A butterfly came flocking near and asked if I would share.

" I cannot share my orange pekoe, for if I shared with you,
the squirrels and the bumble-bees would ask me for some too.

If I could share my pekoe tea with everyone who ask,
it would be a problem see - a complicated task.

All the cats would flock to me and forget to run from dogs.
And all the coons would eventually forget to prey on frogs.

Republicans and Democrats would finally agree - one thing
they have in common is my Lypton pekoe tea.

This world would come together - Muslims and the Jews.
Nike and Addidas would forget te sell their shoes.

Calvein Klein would be in line talking to Hilfigure.
This line wouldn't get any smaller see,
it would only get much bigger. "
