Walter Martin – Charles Rennie Mackintosh lyrics
[Verse 1]
Charles Rennie Mackintosh
Let’s have another cuppa tea before you wander off
Into the cold old Glasgow streets
Where the rain don’t never stop

[Verse 2]
Charles Rennie Mackintosh
As the teapot steeps, I admire every line
And all the high back chairs go “squeak”
And the old tea kettles whine

I find myself at home, my friend
In a land that isn’t mine
And oh, you’re a wise old man, I know
And oh, 'cause when you built that Glasgow School of Art
You built it out of stone

[Verse 3]
Charles Rennie Mackintosh
You know I’d love to stay all week and drink all these teapots dry
But the tea ain’t cheap in this room that you designed
I wonder what they’re asking for a little shepherd’s pie

[Verse 4]
So Charles Rennie Mackintosh
Now the world has turned, your old town has changed a lot
And if you walked Buchanan Street, I’m sure you’d find it odd
Mrs. Cranston sold the building and they changed the whole facade
