Jane Monheit – Tea For Two lyrics

I'm discontented with homes that are rented
And so I've 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 breeze
Lovely to hide in, to live side by side in
Don't let it abide in my dreams

Picture me, upon your knee
Just tea for two and two for tea
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 that we own a telephone
Day will break and you will wake
And I will bake a sugarcake
For you to take for all the boys to see

We will raise a family
A boy for you, a girl for me
Can't you see how happy we will be
