Tea For Two

Melody - Vincent Youmans, 1924; Seq. by Don Ferguson

Irving Caesar, 1924

I'm discontented with homes that are rented
So I have invented my own;
Darling this place is a lover's oasis,
Where life's weary chase is unknown.
Far from the cry of the city
Where flowers pretty caress the streams
Cozy to hide in, to live side by side in,
Don't let it abide in my dreams.
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, dear,
That we own a telephone, dear,
Day will break and you'll awake
And start to bake a sugar cake
For me to take for all the boys to see.
We will raise a family,
A boy for you, a girl for me,
Oh can't you see how happy we would be?
