Many countries have ceremonies of teas
There’s Japan, China and the Vietnamese.
But Aussies have a ceremony too
Our own unique way of making a brew.

First you get a billy tin
Fill it with water and toss some tea in.
Then you place a twig on top
So the taste of smoke won’t spoil the lot.

Boil the billy on an open fire
Then take it off with some fencing wire
Swing the billy around your head
And the leaves on top will sink instead.

Pour the tea and that is that.
Just sit on a log and have a chat.
