Paul McCartney English Tea Lyrics

Last updated: 03/12/2012 11:00:00 AM

(Paul McCartney)

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

(solo)

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 supper time
Nanny bakes fairy cakes
On a Sunday morning

Thanks to Judas Iscariot for submitting English Tea Lyrics.

ENGLISH GARDEN is a very sweet song that reminds you something like FOR NO ONE of THE BEATLES but with a happier msg.
I am a guitar player and a singer and now I am including it into my own repertoire.
5 stars!!!

awesome | Reviewer: bookworm | 3/1/10

I heard this song yesterday on PBS and couldn't get it out of my head. I kept using the word peradventure in as many of sentences as possible. :) It sounds a really nice. It has a light, peaceful, happy kind of tune. I love the Beatles.

Great song | Reviewer: The Beatles Fan | 2/20/07

Masterpiece | Reviewer: Lex | 11/29/05

This is such a fun and light hearted song. It makes me smile to hear it. The orchestral melody in the background and the whimsical flute and popping piano make the listner feel a child like happiess. I can almost see the flowers and taste the cakes and tea. Its beautiful!
