Artiestinformatie

Land   Nederland

Nederlandse band als afsplitsing van Tee-Set: Hans van Eijck (zang, orgel), Ray Fenwick (zang, gitaar), Rob “Polle” Eduard (zang, gitaar, bas) en Martin Hage (drums).



Na hun debuutalbum National Disaster (1968) keert Van Eijck weer terug bij Tee-Set. Engelsman Fenwick gaat in dat jaar terug naar zijn geboorteland om Steve Winwood in de Spencer Davis Group op te volgen. Zijn vervanger is Ferry Lever, afkomstig uit Les Baroques.



In 1968 wordt Hage vervangen door Pierre van der Linden (later in Focus) en vervolgens door Ilja Gort. Onder de naam De Martino’s worden enkele smartlappen opgenomen.



In 1969 treedt de Duitse toetsenist Uly Grün (voorheen in Boots) tot de groep toe. After Tea gaat in 1971 uit elkaar, maar in 1975 nemen Eduard, Lever en Gort nog onder de naam After Tea de single Mexico [VIP VP-7490] op.


Songtekst

I'll take you to a place
With mountains edged with lace
A place where we can find
Jellybeans and wine
We will drink from golden cups
So very old
We can dance to time
Chant verses that don't rhyme

Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
You and me
Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
After tea

If thou will devour
One may eat a flower
On toast, a bean filled bun
Held up before the sun
The bishop and the baker
The candlestick maker
Danced around in line
Danced around in time

Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
You and me
Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
After tea

You may ride a horse
Made of wood of course
The wooden horse of Troy
In comparison a toy
The rabbits and the goldfish
A very tasty cold dish
Eaten up today
Eaten right away

Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
You and me
Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
After tea

Time for you and me
Time for you and tea
Time for you and me (Time for ...)
Time for you and tea (You and ...)
Time for you and me (Me)
Time for you and tea
Time for you and me (Time for ...)
Time for you and tea (You and ...)
Time for you and me (Me)
Time for you and tea

Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
You and me
Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
After tea

Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
You and me
Watch now carefully
Follow me
We will be there
After tea
