Pink Martini - Tea For Two Lyrics



I'm discontented with homes that I've rented
So I have invented my own.
Darling, this place is lovely oasis
Where life's weary taste is unknown

Far from the crowded city
Where flowers pretty caress the stream
Cozy to hide in, to live side by side in,
Don't let it apart in my dream

Picture me upon your knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me alone

Nobody near us to see us or hear us
No friends or relations
On weekend vacations
We won't have it known
That we own a telephone, dear

Day will break and I'll wake
And start to bake a sugar cake
For you to take for all the boys to see

We will raise a family
A boy for you
And a girl for me
Can't you see how happy we would be

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me alone

Nobody near us to see us or hear us
No friends or relations
On weekend vacations
We won't have it known
That we own a telephone, dear

Day will break, you'll wake
And start to bake a sugar cake
For you to take for all the boys to see

We will raise a family
A boy for you
And a girl for me
Can't you see how happy we would be

  21. john czaja

    do you mean to tell me one of these singers is NOT Billie Holiday?

    Aikaterini Argyroudi

    I searched it..It's a HE, first of all! :O His name is Little Jimmy Scott, and due to a rare disease, his voice is extremely high!

  22. Reylari

    Love this, keep remembering the good times! O:)*

  23. KikiMimiSenmon

    I want to talk while drinking tea until a day shows with my partner who is wonderful!
    Thanks for uplorded nice song!

  24. Paun Marcel

    FRUMOS...

  25. Jennifer Muse

    Ok, the other singer is a "he", the singer Jimmy Scott, who has an unusually high voice for a man (it's the result of a syndrome; you can read about him on the internet).

  26. Jennifer Muse

    She doesn't sound like Storm to me...

  27. Lucia Gamper

    Her voice is like chocolate-smoothie..

  28. cristicbz

    Not a martini? Of a pink variety?

  29. Frank Washburn

    they did a song with Jimmy Scott. The group is fantastic.........

  30. lowgromb

    Pink Martini is just a fantastic band. I'm looking forward to the next concert.

  31. Holly Kelsey

    Is it Storm Large?

    liviusss

    No, it's China Forbes, their first singer.

  32. Missblob1

    Pink martini is a group/band

  33. Aditya Pradipta

    Waaaaaaait, is this Jimmy Scott?

  34. winki07

    Indeed.. but who is the second voice? It starts with China

  35. Ernesto Ing

    i just love it

  36. Aditya Pradipta

    I find the elderly lady version's phrasing similar to Billie Holiday's. Awesome.

  37. Alexandre Beullier

    Or a cup of tea with someone else :)

  38. Konstantinos Karakostis

    pink martini has become her for me now, like many other things

  39. happyhav

    Jimmy Scott has to be sharing the vocals, right? Sounds just like him.

  40. Spunky Kitty

    The perfect song for an episode of 'Mad Men'

  41. Nader620

    When I hear this song I think of a 40+ year old single woman sitting at the bar, still looking for a man, still dreaming that everything will be turn out alright. I think it's a sad song and meant to sound like a desperate situation.

  42. Ramona6

    Unsnapping garter, rolling down nylons, sipping auxerois in my pink slip...

  43. ronald andrade

    la segunda voz es de Jimmy scott... gran voz

  58. VideoHatch

    The highest quality audio I've heard on you tube

  59. Andrew

    @Otterboy411
    I not 100% but I think the name of the artist is Avtandil Makharoblidze. He's from Georgia ( the country, not the state). I'm fairly certain it's by him; certainly his style.

  60. linguini

    @Otterboy411 from their albumcover

  61. William Beaufort

    Pink Martini Features Chin Forbes on vocals. This track features a very special guest vocalist, Little Jimmy Scott, a jazz vocalist with a very long history of special performances. Saw him in Tompkins Square Park in NYC last summer, spent most of the show in tears....of joy, of sorrow (he was in a wheelchair), of warmth and gratitude for having this man enrich my life

  62. David J. Bauman

    @linguini82 Yes, it certainly is!

  63. linguini

    @sonofwalt :) the song was sang by Pink Martini from the album Hey Eugene! released in 2007 by Heinz Records company.

    beautiful isn't it.

  64. David J. Bauman

    Description please! This is gorgeous. I need to know who, when, how, etc. :)
