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)

C#m      B           A
You take milk if you please (afternoon tea)

A                   E
Like you talking to me

E           B
Because you ease my mind


C#m   B        A

Second verse same as the first


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)

Date: April 8, 2005 From: Sam Siegel The chords over the "Donna" in the verse (where you have B, Bm) should be Bm, Dm. So, opening verse chords are - A, C#m, Bm, Dm.
