Nat King Cole - When I Take My Sugar To Tea Lyrics

I'm just a little Jackie Horner
Since I met my sugar cane
That gang of mine has been revealin'
That they're feelin' sore
I left the lamp light on the corner
For the moon in lover's lane
I'm doing things I never did before

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

Ev'ry 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 can be
'Cause I never take her where the gang goes
When I take my sugar to tea

  6. GuitarGuy

    Nat played pop stuff live like this bc otherwise people would talk in the audience if the band got too jazzy/instrumental.


    Some once asked Fats,”What is Swing?”
    Well here it is!

  12. Jerry Johnson

    Nat King Cole...'nuff said.

  13. james manolides

    the same goes for ray charles, one of the great jazz pianists. a talent not overlooked by ertegun,  (atlantic) but once he went to abc it was all over.

  14. Ben Robertson

    When Nat turned pop crooner, it was the pop world's gain and the jazz world's great loss. He was one of the great jazz pianists of all time and highly influential on the likes of Oscar Peterson and Diana Krall.

  15. Mary Kelley Hoppe
