The Magnetic Fields The Dolls’ Tea Party Lyrics

[Verse 1: Shirley Simms]
At the dolls' tea party, we fritter away
The long afternoon of a warmer summer day
With extended pinkies and pink cloisonné
Cups and saucers and pots and a Liberty tray

[Chorus]
That's why we take our tea
At the dolls' tea party

[Verse 2]
At the dolls' tea party we twitter along
We prattle and tattle on who's done whom wrong
On who's in, who's out, and who's best at mah-jongg
Oh, and where to buy fabulous things for a song

[Chorus]
That's why we take our tea
At the dolls' tea party

[Bridge]
But the cakes!
Ah, the cakes are why everyone's there
They're not dietetic in any way
Dare to try one and you'll have a few pounds to spare
Try another one
What do you care?

[Verse 3]
At the dolls', we're all in our glittering best
There will be a test on who's best and worst dressed
But we won't have it said we're fashion obsessed
We're just prettier ladies than most of the rest

[Chorus]
That's why we take our tea
At the dolls' tea party
