I’m looking forward to feeling
something warm, something quiet.
Time’s been rough on me, old buddy,
I haven’t got a smile in me just yet.
Give me something that eases my mind,
something that takes the voices out.
Give me something smooth to
forget what my day’s been about.
Let me dwell here for a moment longer,
even though I know I cannot stay.
Give me hope and love and cheer,
old friend, give me a kiss on my way.
And when I leave, don’t miss me just yet,
I’ll be back tomorrow, I’ll drink with you again.
You give me this smile, my friend, you make my day,
You’re my cup of tea, amid the Bombay rain.
