overture: tea for two lyrics – tea for two

music: vincent youmans
lyrics: irving caesar + otto harbach
book: otto harbach + frank mandel
film: 1950

picture you upon my knee
just tea for two
and two for tea
just me for you
and you for me alone
n*body 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 wake,
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
and a girl for me
oh, can’t you see how happy we would be…
