"Afternoon Tea" is the 10th song on the album "Something Else by The Kinks". The album saw poor
sales but great reception and reviews. In 2003, the album was ranked #288 on Rolling Stone magazine's list
of the 500 greatest albums of all time. So here are the chords, enjoy!

(This song is in the key of E, if you wanna solo over it.)

[Verse 1]
A        C#m                           Bm        Dm
Tea time won't be the same without my Donna
A        C#m                       Bm      Dm
At night I lie awake and dream of Donna
C#                 F#m
I think about that small café
C#                      F#m
That's where we used to meet each day
C#                  F#m    F#                       
And then we used to sit a while
       D           G    F#m
And drink our afternoon tea

[Chorus]
C#m        B         A
I'll take afternoon tea (afternoon tea)
C#m     B           A
If you take it with me (afternoon tea)
A                        E
You take as long as you like
          B
'cause I like you, girl

C#m     B         A
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
            B
Because you ease my mind


[Bridge] (Same Chords as chorus)
C#m   B        A
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
C#m   B        A
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
A                   E

[Verse 2]
A           C#m                          Bm       Dm     
Tea time still ain't the same without my Donna
A           C#m                   Bm       Dm
At night I lie awake and dream of Donna
C#               F#m
I went to our cafe one day
C#                   F#m
They said that Donna walked away
C#                       F#m        F#
You'd think at least she might have stayed
     D            G   F#m
To drink her afternoon tea

[Chorus]
C#m       B          A
I'll take afternoon tea (afternoon tea)
C#m     B           A
If you take it with me (afternoon tea)
A                        E
You take as long as you like
           B
'cause I like you, girl

C#m      B        A
I take afternoon tea (afternoon tea)
C#m     B        A
Every day of the week (afternoon tea)
A                        E
Please come along if you like
            B
Because I like you, girl

[Bridge]
C#m      B      A
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
C#m   B        A
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
A                   E
