Tea for Three

Verse 1

I just called you, I really do like you

But you have someone you’re quite keen on

You say she’s a, very fine lady

While you’re not sure I’m, your cup of tea

I can be so funny, and also so romantic

How can I persuade you, to take a chance with me?

We could be so happy; you must believe me

Call me, mail me, please invite me to tea

 

Chorus

So, it’s time for tea, and today its tea for three        

An invitation, not to be missed

You welcome us both, with a big smile and a kiss

What type of blend, would you care for?

Ginseng Oolong, Lapsang Souchong

Very tasty, a touch of Pekoe                         

So, it’s time for tea, and today its tea for three

An invitation, not to be missed

 

Verse 2

Let’ s take a trip, only for us 2

I’ll read you Shelley, it’ll be heaven

Forget her now, you just don’t need her

Now I’m quite sure I’m, your cup of tea

Once you get to know me, you’ll see I am the best choice

Maybe an acquired taste, like certain special teas

We could be so happy; you must believe me

Call me, mail me, please invite me to tea

Chorus

So, it’s time for tea, and today its tea for three        

An invitation, not to be missed

You welcome us both, with a big smile and a kiss

What type of blend, would you care for?

Ginseng Oolong, Lapsang Souchong

Very tasty, a touch of Pekoe             

So, it’s time for tea, and today its tea for three

An invitation, not to be missed
