Then I have a cup of tea

I take my pills then check e-mails
She sometimes files my fingernails
On basic things we both agree
Then I have a cup of tea

She helps me chose what I should wear
Puts on my shoes and combs my hair
Bandages my damaged knee
Then I have a cup of tea

I'm powdered, perfumed and arranged. 
Disguising just how much I‘ve changed
She comes here to take care of me 
Then I have a cup of tea

Being showered, dried and dressed
Leaves me feeling dispossessed
Say goodbye to autonomy
Then I have a cup of tea
