Tea For Two

Album: No, No, Nanette (1924)
  • 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? Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
