He sits in the corner never looking up Hand twitches by the side of an old tea cup He looks all alone but there’s a beast below And he’s coming up for another show All that he wanted was a nice cup of tea But the world turned against him, didn’t hear his plea The milk was sour the water warm, the sugar bowl was dry It could have been so simple but now they’re all gonna die He’s a coffee shop psycho The bistro butcherer The caffeine cut throat The mess hall murderer But if you see him coming Looking for a brew Don’t mess with his oolong Or he will mess with you COFFEE SHOP PSYCHO

Take me away oh, any place but here Want to be a traveller, I want to buccaneer I’ll disappear over night, I’ll creep into the dark Dance through until morning comes, where you will steal my heart No strings to keep me here, nowhere to call my own It’s now all crystal clear, time to tread the path unknown I’ll disappear over night, I’ll creep into the dark Dance through until morning comes, where you will steal my heart I’m the traveller, not a passenger I’m the traveller, not a passenger I’m the traveller, not a passenger I’m the traveller, not a passenger

You all heard the tale of that Cinderella chick Well I’ll tell you something that the stories missed Our main lady wasn’t so meek and shy She was pretty shady, and liked to drink and drive That girl had one funky pumpkin Liked to race in her funky pumpkin Got chased in her funky pumpkin And hightailed it into the night Prince Charming left behind as she felt wind whippin' in her hair Glass slipper never mind, not when she’s in the driving chair No wicked Step Mother when Cinder’s behind the wheel Just burning rubber and tired screaming at her heels

No Sugar 03:03
When you hear exotic sounds, does it make you move around Do you tap your feet, or start to dance Did this happen suddenly, is it taking over me Why not take this chance Cause I, no I don’t need no sugar, no Cause the music, is sweet enough
5.
Mischief 03:04
You can hold on, till the end of time We dance in the fire, we never get tired, we don’t go slow Our chariot awaits, and where it takes us no-body knows
6.
Said are you ready Are you ready to twist Now put your hands up If you want to enlist This time it’s for real, not like the last So come on, on your feet Charging to the Balkan Blast Now come on soldiers Keep your heads up high Just take a hold of Your hearts and stand by We’re ready to march now We’ll go in fast Already on our feet Charging to the Balkan Blast The Balkan Blast Get…. Get…. Ready

Pants Party 03:37
If you are very shy Come and join us, come and join us, come and drop by Or if you can’t wait on stand-by Got it all here, seen it all here, come and drop by It’s about time… Fellas got their speedos on, looking just like Donkey Kong Oh won’t you sing along, at the pants party Ladies don your brassieres, G-strings, stockings, we don’t care Any kind of underwear at the pants party It’s not about who is who, Or what you’re wearing, no one’s caring, shake your caboose We’re all here to let lose, So jump on board, you’ll never get bored, there’s no excuse
8.
Goulash 04:19
When the music is dropping and filling up your mind There’s no time for stopping, it’s time to unwind When the world starts to shake and shimmer in your eyes No there’s no time to waste, it’s time to claim your prize Come get hypnotised, come get hypnotised Time to join the riff-raff, it’s time to join the rabble Let the spell take over, with it’s razzle-dazzle The mob is taking control, there’s no time for bed There’s magic in the music, you can sleep when you’re dead Let your feet gravitate, as you move across the floor No this party can’t wait, it’s time to declare war Oh, oh, let the beat take you higher, shakes you to your soul Yes tonight will inspire to enter the unknown Come get in the zone, come get in the zone
9.
Seven Seas 05:04
Once a wise man, said to me Don’t you worry, one day you’ll be free Then he took my hand and led me to the sea Now I live my life, guided by the breeze Some say mad Some say easy But I say floating Never queasy Keep the dance right Come and tease me And we’ll go all night Until we’re free Come all you sailors And all you ravers You trail blazers Come and dance with me We’ll jump on this ship Before it leaves quick You’ll learn some new tricks as we Sail the seven seas, the seven seas
10.
Lockdown 04:24
Welcome to the guard house, please enjoy your stay Because there ain’t no way out, so come and join the fray This is our fortress, oh our very own retreat Feel free to confess but you won’t escape the beat We’re on lockdown Don’t panic now, we’re in control You’ll soon come around, to living in the dark Cause when the lights do come on That’s when, we party hard Oh this, is our fortress, oh our very own retreat Feel free to undress but you can’t escape the heat

about

Tea Your Mind is the explosive debut album by Mr Tea and the Minions. Their full power blend of Balkan Gypsy music with a huge variety of styles - and stirred together with strong flavours of their personalities, really creates a truly unique sound! Kicking off with a bang with opening track 'Coffee Shop Psycho' and barely relenting until the raucous 'Lockdown' 10 tracks later, Tea Your Mind really depicts the exciting, hugely energetic and colourful wonders of the Minions' live show and allows you to experience it anytime, anywhere! Whether dancing around in your bedroom, or in need of an energy boost whilst on the way to work, why not bring some more Mr Tea and the Minions into your life!
