Paul McCartney - English Tea Lyrics

Would you care to sit with me
For a cup of English tea
Very twee
Very me
Any sunny morning

What a pleasure it would be
Chatting so delightfully
Nanny bakes
Fairy cakes
Every Sunday morning

Miles and miles of English garden
Stretching past the willow tree
Lines of hollyhocks and roses
Listen most attentively

Do you know the game croquet
Peradventure we might play
Very gay
Hip hooray
Any sunny morning

Miles and miles of English garden
Stretching past the willow tree
Lines of hollyhocks and roses
Listen most attentively

As a rule the church bells chime
When it's almost suppertime
Nanny bakes fairy cakes
On a Sunday morning

    How many masterpieces have written Paul in less than 3 minutes .
    This is the best album of that year .

  10. Fernando Molina

    What a fine picture!!!

  11. daaaw

    I keep seeing people list this as one of Paul’s worst songs... Yeah, it’s dumb, but that melody is fucking amazing.

  12. Albert Braam


  13. Juancho Núñez

    Listening to this while enjoying a nice cuppa of Earl Grey.

  14. ddjdd wfgggb

    honey pie part 2

    Sounds like it could have fit on the White album.

    Michael M.

    Right before or after Piggies.


    Reminds me a bit like a for no one of revolver

    Jude Connelly

    Always thought that too - he can still pull out Beatle Paul when the moons align. Queeny Eye straight of of Magical Mystery Tour - well, until the breakdown. Prime McCartney.

  16. King Adrock

    2 a girl I used 2 know

  17. Jason Lee

    The Beatles make me proud to be British....


    The Beatles make me proud that the world produced a beautiful, freakish anomaly in music which provided us so many almost magical songs to listen to.

    Emilio Zagardy

    You should we The WORLD are grateful them !!!!

  18. Jason Lee

    Paul is still a genius.   Hope he lives forever....

    Martina Linked to we

    I just spent some time in England, and Liverpool. I loved the time I spent in Liverpool, and only wish Paul could have been there so I could meet him. His music is legendary and unbelievable. I cherish my stop at "Penny Lane" while on a Beatles bus tour in Liverpool. Long live Paul McCartney.

  19. Conan Inflable

    te importaría sentarte conmigo para tomar unos matecitos, un domingo de estos, a la mañana? :P

    Diego Muñoz

    Conan Inflable pero yo también tengo que poder bailar

    Sapo Barranquero

    Franco Diaz

    Conan Inflable Excelente traducción jaja.

  20. Aftermath

    This song makes me remember that Paul McCartney the Beatle is still among us.

  21. eslermanu47

    It takes a genius to write a song like this. so simple but just try and write one like it.

  22. Boko

    Very elegant. i could get used to this

  23. James Dunn

    Continues in the tradition of Paul's music hall music. "She Gave Me The Answer" being one example.

    idan willenchik

    You Gave Me the Answer.

  24. nschulz4537

    sharing cups and cakes with me and cakes with meeeeeee

    once is never enough....go on play again.

  30. impishenglish

    Paul, i love you!

  31. irving bfhhf

    happy birthday, sir paul mccartney

  32. Luc Baudouin

    Intro inspired by "La ballade de Johnny Jane" (Gainsbourg)?

    Strath Man

    The brief melodic figure at about 0:14-0:20 is similar to a phrase in La Ballade, but not the same, and the feeling of it is different. It could conceivably be an echo, but it seems unlikely to me. I don't think it's a distinctive enough phrase to claim direct descent anyway. More likely just the usual 'convergent evolution' that throws up similar phrases over and over.

  33. Isaiah Rocha


  34. Viviana Emily Cosimetti02

    Paul?? you and me...English tea!!!!

  35. Holdington

    A bit Cups and Cakes by Spinal Tap about this :)

    The jam to go on the scones, when they're sitting in an English garden waiting for the Sun, drinking English tea, you mean ?

  40. Colin Santee

  41. wen B

    I fell obsessed with "My Valentine", the song was stuck in my head, and also "English Tea"

  42. wen B

    Oh Paul, the songs you write, never bore me (not even close).Don't ever be doubtful about your music, because its beautiful, and you my friend, its like you have the magic touch, when it comes to music.But that magic, comes naturally from you.Rock on.

  43. Dani 8a

    forever replay

  44. Erik Kla

    "For no one"
