"Afternoon Tea" by The Kinks (c.1967)

The Kinks must have been serious tea drinkers! I had already featured their "Have a Cuppa Tea" on my blog, and recently discovered another tea song by them:

Afternoon Tea by The Kinks

Tea time won't be the
same without my Donna
At night I lie awake and dream of Donna
I think
about that small cafe
That's where we used to meet each day
And then we
used to sit a while
And drink our afternoon tea

I'll take afternoon
tea (afternoon tea)
If you take it with me (afternoon tea)
You take as
long as you like
'Cause I like you, girl

I take sugar with tea
(afternoon tea)
You take milk if you please (afternoon tea)
Like you
talking to me
Because you ease my mind

Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon
tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)

Tea time still ain't the same
without my Donna
At night I lie awake and dream of Donna
I went to our
cafe one day
They said that Donna walked away
You'd think at least she
might have stayed
To drink her afternoon tea

I'll take afternoon tea
(afternoon tea)
If you take it with me (afternoon tea)
You take as long
as you like
'Cause I like you, girl

I take afternoon tea (afternoon
tea)
Every day of the week (afternoon tea)
Please come along if you like
Because I like you, girl

Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
