I wish I was a tea-bag

Does anyone knoe the amusing poem "I wish I was a tea-bag?" Unfortunately I've lost it and, besides wanting it for myself, I want to include it in a birthday card.

Thank you

I'd like to be a Teabag

l'd like to be a teabag,
And stay at home all day -
And talk to other teabags
In a teabag sort of way . . .

l'd love to be a teabag;
And lie in a little box -
And never have to wash my face
Or change my dirty socks . . .

l'd like to be a teabag,
An Earl Grey one perhaps,
And doze all day and lie around
With Earl Grey kind of chaps.

l wouldn't have to do a thing,
No homework, jobs or chores -
Comfy in my caddy
Of teabags and their snores.

l wouldn't have to do exams
l needn't tidy rooms,
Or sweep the floor or feed the cat
Or wash up all the spoons.

l wouldn't have to do a thing,
A life of bliss - you see . . .
Except that once in all my life
I`d make a cup of tea!

I'd Like to be a Teabag from I'd Like to be a Teabag and other Poems
BBC Books

( I thought it was by Pam Ayres ... )

I must admit, it's a nice change from 'I'm a little teapot.'
