1 There's no-thing much ni-cer than  a bil-ly of tea


2 I'll   stick to  my   darl-ing   old bil-ly of tea
3 And straight away sling my old black bil-ly pot
4 Then haste   to    tuck in - to  my  bil-ly of tea
5 A billy for each holds a com - for - ta - ble feed
6 I wait till it's read - y   -   the  bil-ly of tea
