'The Tables Are Laid at a Blandford Tea Palace'
The tables are laid at a Blandford tea palace'
To honor a monarch like A A Milne's Alice
Meet sweet Dorset ladies who are ninety years young
And others whose lives have barely begun... at this palace
Tea's being served at this elegant palace
'They've portraits of royalty too', whispers Alice
'I'd love to be photographed what do you think?
Then framed and hung against deep fushia pink' ... in this palace
The Signals are marching down to this palace
We bet there's a Christopher, Robin and Alice
For Beatons has food for the military
And options that even include gluten-free! ... at its palace
Everyone cheer and raise your glass chalice
Wish The Queen many more years in her palace!
Then lashings of tea and jam, cake and scones
Celebrate those who've reached ninety milestones... at this palace...
at this palace... at this palace...
