Description
This is a tune about a chap, who when he gets off of work, heads home immediately, for he just has to have his Tea and Scones, and nothing else will do.

I wrote this as a follow-up to my successful tune,
" Cryin in Me Guinness ", where I sang for the first time. This was after the encouraging words from other MacJammers when they commented on my scatted tune " Ba-Doop ", particularly Ed Hannifin.

This tune would not have been possible without the helpful suggestion of Dick Langford that I cut it down from the original 5 minutes & Anne Cozean's eagerness to get things the way I wanted them...(yes sir, no sir, shorty-pie), along with her sound level critiques.

Much thanks also to Thor for his quickness in getting me his rhythm acoustic guitar part and to Norm for lending his fire.

Lyrics
Tea and Scones

I want me tea and me scones
I need them when I get home
I need them everyday
Or someones gonna pay
I need me tea and scones
I need me tea and scones

A bit of butter with the batter
Making hay with Earl Gray
Accepting nothing else
I need them in me house
Got-ta got-ta got-ta got-ta
I Need me tea and scones
I Need me tea and scones

Scones, scones scones
Got to have me them scones
With my Earl Gray, tea-tea, yeah
I'm beggin on my knees now
Scones, scones scones
Got to have me them scones
With my Earl Gray, tea-tea, yeah
I'm beggin on my knees now

Though it's origins claimed by both
On me scones I want it most
Be it Cornwall or from Devon
On me scones it'll make it heaven
On it's cracks with bumpy seams
I'm talkin lots of clotted cream
I'm just not any kind of guy
who'll take a piece of apple pie
I Needs me tea and scones
I Needs me tea and scones

With the scones I need that tea
Seems most natural to me
Everyday you'll hear me say
It's got to be the earl gray
Don't want oolong or the chai
The kind of teas that I won't buy
To have with tea and scones
The scones I eat when I'm home
I need me tea and scones

Need me tea and scones
Got to have them now
I say with furrowed brow
Now, now now
That's how it's got to be
Having scones with me tea
So important yes to me
I need me tea and scones.

I'd just panic eating bannock
In me throat oats make me choke
Golden toast with fancy Jam
It just don't fit within me plans
It's not the crux of the matter
That the scones may make me fatter
I want me tea and scones
I need them when I get home
I need me tea and scones

For this snack hungry man
They're just a part of God's plan
It so important yes to me
I have them scones with me tea
That's how it's got to be
I need me tea and scones
scones, scones, scones scones---

Scones, scones scones
got to have me them scones
with my Earl Gray, tea-tea, yeah
I'm beggin on my knees now
Scones, scones scones
got to have me them scones
with my Earl Gray, tea-tea, yeah
I'm beggin on my knees now

I want me tea and me scones
I need them when I get home
I need them everyday
Or someones gonna pay
I need me tea and scones
Scones scones scones scones
Scones scones scones scones
Scones scones scones scones

Sc-OH-nes?
love the backups and that lead guitar is nuts.
a good laugh and reminds me I've got to try that lemonade scones recipe i saw the other day. that, to a scones connoisseur such as yourself, may be a travesty but it sounded pretty tasty to me.

Thanks Tea Party Pal, and for giving a listen. Hope my fake accent and poor pronunciation of "scones" won't hinder my being knighted some day at the scones hall of fame. When I did a search on Macjams for any mention of scones, your name definitely came up so I had to invite you to the party.

Dury
Didn't know much about Mr. Dury or his music, so I had to check the many youtube videos of his work online. They had a 3 pt documentary on there and I have become a fan. Quite an interesting background, he has: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Dury

What a line-up
Great piece here, rich as clotted cream... and for that, I'll overlook your dismissal of Oolong :-) Love the guitar work, Norman and Thoddi are great here. And of course, "Sisters" and "awesome" are synonymous. Damien, you make me smirk, chewy-fun lyrics, bouncy-fun singing, and wonderfully arranged music. And this *is* metaphorical, right?
ttfn,
Drakonis

thanks Mr. Dragon
Glad you came by for a sip of the Earl. While I was working on this tune, it was suggested by my artistic brother that I get someone to do a funny, Monty Pythonesque film, having a short, chubby little man with a striped shirt, red vest and knickers, jumping off a double decker bus and running home to barge in his front door to get his scones. Your a film maker right? We need some props for this one.
Thanks Drak for listening.

Ed Hannifin said 2991 days ago (June 13th, 2009)
Totally Ian Drury...
...although Anne's contributions add in a touch of Dan Hicks...

Man, where were you last year when I was asking all the Brit MacJammers about Devonshire cream tea? The things I had to do to find clotted cream...

I think this is a hit, Damien... although it needs a crazy little sax break, doesn't it? I bet there's a producer out there who'd tweak this and get it radio play in a heartbeat...

damiengh said 2990 days ago (June 14th, 2009)
whoa
Thanks for the kind words Ed.

You were an integral part in the direction of this project. For it was you that encouraged me a while back to keep singing and you also made some great suggestions for instrumentation that got me moving in a forward direction.

Thoddi's guitar glistened, and I was thinking of you when I included him in the project.

Love the tea, and those scones are to die for mate.

The music and entertainment weren't half bad either, as a matter of fact it was bloody wonderful . Great collab all around, love the lyrics and vox, the Sisters harmonies, Thoddi's Acoustic and Norman's shredding fit it to a, dare I sat it, yes I do, TEA

Scones Junkie
Ed wrote pretty much what I was about to write about similarities to Ian Drury and Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks.

This is a quirky, entertaining tune, Damien. Nice contributions all around.

BTW... have you tried scones with Guinness? ;)

kevmikwa said 2989 days ago (June 15th, 2009)
Fun!
I was a regular Dr. Demento listener back in the day. I enjoy songs like this one, and knowing that it was made by a gang of all-star MacJammers only enhanced the experience. Love the accent and got a chuckle at some passages (even though I prefer my tea iced, sweetened and "lemoned").

I must admit to being a bit of a snob about drum loops (probably not a big surprise to those who know me). When drums either start or stop, I usually like to have a little fill, a buildup or something (even just a crash cymbal on the downbeat). I realize that loop-users are a bit handcuffed most of the time, as there is rarely an adequate selection of intros, outros and fills. Thankfully, an unchanging beat with few dynamic changes actually kind of lends itself to this style of music - might not have worked on a different song.

I could have seen some sax in there somewhere too ...

This is brilliant to be sure but the main thing I get out of the groove you've all laid down is that this was just a terrifically fun project to work on. It really comes through in the final product, and whilst I could elaborate on all of the wonderful nuances in the mix I think in the end it is simply brilliant and had me bopping along with a grin.

Kudos all round!

Scones
I miss them so much... My aunt used to prepare them every day. Pleasure of the gods (with dulce de leche in my case). Can't find them here in the states. I'll have to learn how to prepare them I guess.

Oh, well... let's go to the real thing: SISTERS, you sound GREAT! Wonderful harmonies. Love the humor in the song.
I agree with the comment about sax: perhaps a pumpy brass section at the end. I'm almost sure you can make a very realistic wind section with some soft instruments and your sax.

And keep singing!!! Love it.

Fresh-Baked Scones
This was so much fun to listen to. Every element of this song just sounds flawless to me--the arrangement, the lead vocals, the background vocals. It's a really great song because it's funny and lighthearted, but not so much so that you don't take it seriously or couldn't dance to it, if that makes sense. I love tea & scones, BTW, and am delighted that someone took the time to write a great song about them!

Great stuff
Like the inclusion of "earl grey"! Some English peeps say "sc-owns" and some say "sc-awns". They're strange folk. Loved this - really made me smile! Thanks for making my day. Right - I'm off for a cuppa.

Who'd have thought
Love the lyrics - you don't hear a line like "Making hay with Earl Grey" in many rock songs! Love the backing guitar playing - very clean and precise - and the shredding guitar is lively. Vocals excellent, including the harmonies, (love the tightness of the fast sections "I'm beggin' on my knees now"). Much enjoyed - glad I finally caught up with it!

Java Jive
Don't know why this reminds me of "The Java Jive." Probably that very smooth vocal harmony that backs up so many phrases in this almost-rap-like little story. Adding to the comments (above), I think it's that backup choir that gives such an appealing feeling to this track, that and the pots and pans you've got going on here and there in the background. This is a really inventive number that you perform beautifully. Whew. I am out of breath listening.
Nice.
