when i take my sugar to tea lyrics – nat king cole

when i take my sugar to tea,
all the boys are jealous of me,
’cause i never take her where the gang goes,
when i take my sugar to tea.

i’m a rowdy dowdy, that’s me,
she’s a high hat baby, that’s she,
so i never take her where the gang goes,
when i take my sugar to tea.

every sunday afternoon,
we forget about our cares,
rubbing elbows at the ritz,
with those millionaires.

when i take my sugar to tea,
i’m as ritzy as i can be,
’cause i never take her where the gang goes,
when i take my sugar to tea.

(musical interlude)

every sunday afternoon,
we forget about those cares,
rubbing elbows at the ritz,
with those zillionaires.

when i take my sugar to tea,
i’m as ritzy as i can be,
’cause i never take her where the gang goes,
when i take, take my sugar to tea.
