  • Tea is the most popular beverage in Britain, and Americans drink coffee, so naturally this standard about Blighty's national drink was penned by...two Americans.

    "Tea For Two" was written for the comedy musical No, No, Nanette by composer Vincent Youmans and lyricist Irving Caesar. Unleashed on the world in 1924, it has been widely recorded including by Doris Day in the 1950 production Tea For Two. >>
