The Story Behind TEA WITH STEVIE (Nicks)

June 25, 2010

So I was watching a recent video of Stevie Nicks sing DREAMS and boom it hit me.

Rumours!

In 1977, that album blew me away and Stevie Nicks knocked me out, so I wrote this song to tell the story”

LYRICS

Tea with Stevie

Thinking bout my better days
On the edge of seventeen phase
All alone in my bed at night
Dreams go round in my head I might

Spread the Rumours around
that I was gettin’ outta town
with my turntable on
just hidin’ out with my favorite song

One day in another world
Someday with another girl
But tonite its’ only me
I wanna drink tea with Stevie

Stop dragging my heart around
Let’s make love in the underground
Thunder happens in the rain
Still hear ya sayin’ you’d never break the chain

All the Rumours around
I was fallin’ at the speed of sound
with my headphones on
rain washes me and my favorite song

One day in another world
Someday with another girl
But tonite its’ only me
I wanna drink tea with Stevie

Crystal visions make ya sayin’
Players love ya when ya playin’

Got my leather where’s your lace?
Stand back or get me outta this place
A wild heart makes lovin’ fun
When a Gypsy’s got nowhere to run

All the Rumours around
I was missing at the lost and found
So turn your radio on
and look for me in my favorite song

One day in another world
Someday with another girl
But tonite its’ only me
I wanna drink tea with Stevie

One day someday
I will go my own way
Women come and they will go
But tonite on the lonely show

I wanna drink tea with Stevie
I wanna drink tea with Stevie
Did you see her on TV?
I wanna drink tea with Stevie

Oh oh oh oh take it easy
I wanna drink tea with you
