    	Hi,
    		I have been asked where to find the music 'Everything 
    Stops for Tea'.
    	I suppose there must be a website with the tune listed.  For 
    those who have never heard it, it is a bright sort of song in the Noel 
    Coward mold from that sort of period but I couldn't quote a year.   I 
    believe it is just as viable a tune as many 'Strathspeys' we have to 
    dance to.
    	I can't even remember many of the lines but one that sticks is
    
    "With the bailiffs at the door
    When the clock strikes four
    Everything stops for tea"
