Sit down, stand up
Stand up, sit down
Come and sit right next to me
Would you like a cup of tea?

You stand, I sit
I sit, you stand
You are standing on your feet
While I’m sitting in my seat

You can sit or you can stand
It is up to you my friend
But if you want to see me smile
Stay here for a while

You can sit or you can stand
It is up to you my friend
But if you want to see me smile
Stay here for a while

Sit down, stand up
Stand up, sit down
Come and sit right next to me
Would you like a cup of tea?

You stand, I sit
I sit, you stand
You are standing on your feet
While I’m sitting in my seat

You can sit or you can stand
It is up to you my friend
But if you want to see me smile
Stay here for a while

You can sit or you can stand
It is up to you my friend
But if you want to see me smile
Stay here for a while

Sit down, stand up
Stand up, sit down
Come and sit right next to me
Would you like a cup of tea?

You stand, I sit
I sit, you stand
You are standing on your feet
While I’m sitting in my seat

You can sit or you can stand
It is up to you my friend
But if you want to see me smile
Stay here for a while

You can sit or you can stand
It is up to you my friend
But if you want to see me smile
Stay here for a while...
