Profits from the sale of this track will go 'Faith To Faithless', a campaign supported by The British Humanist Association. Faith To Faithless is a community project to provide support for so-called 'apostates' and all those who face exclusion, rejection, abuse, and isolation after deciding to leave behind a religion.
Somewhere out in Space between the Earth and Planet Mars,
Elliptically orbiting the Sun, amid the stars,
Oh, so small! Mighty Hubble can’t reveal it,
Floats a tiny china teapot.
I can’t prove it… but I feel it.
Should you try to tell me kindly that my teapot isn’t there,
That my crockery’s apocryphal, prove me wrong I dare.
I believe in Teapot ’cause it’s written in a book,
By this brainy bloke call Bertie.
If you want to, you can take a look.
(You can look, if you want to.)
Only fools have faith in him, that’s what people say,
But I love my little teapot and I worship him each day.
And I believe this miracle: far beyond the moon,
Floats the Trinity of Teapot, Cup and Saucer,
And a Spoon.
(All hail, Almighty Spoon!)
Yes, somewhere out in Space between the Earth and Planet Mars,
Elliptically orbiting the Sun amid the stars,
Oh so small! Mighty Hubble cannot show it,
Floats a tiny china tea set.
I can’t prove it… I just know it.
(He just knows it!)
I just know it.
(Like I said, he just knows it!)
My tiny china teapot, far too small to see,
A beverage for everyone, tea for you and me.
My tiny china teapot, far too small to find,
A beverage for everyone, tea for all mankind!
Tea for all mankind!
Tea! For all mankind.
Praise ye my porcelain!
