Mark Agustin Shares a “Cup of Tea (Lovely Lovely)”

Raspy voiced Mark Agustin has a new song out, “Cup of Tea (Lovely Lovely)”, that is not from his recent Pride & Shame project. The track uses an unorthodox voice-over sample that gets a bit repetitive by the end of the song, and places it over his signature anthem-style production. Can’t say I’m in love with the track, maybe it’ll grow on me. We’ll see how the music video fares once it drops, which is reportedly in the works.

(Chorus)
Can I have a cup of tea please? (3x)
Yeah .. It’s so lovely lovely
Can I have a cup of tea please? (3x)
Yeah .. It’s so lovely lovely

(Verse1)
I think about how we started this all
Computer mics, recorders, karaokes and all
They tried to break us down tellin us we won’t make it
But I put truth in the music so I ain’t gotta fake it
You put your faith upon me the first time you listened
So when I’m rocking the shades you don’t question my vision
See the way that I’m living is nothing flashy
Instilled my values simple yet classy
Don’t get lost in the material bliss
And miss something that’s real
Cause at the end of the day how do you really feel?
… don’t build walls, build bridges
My best friend told live love life chase riches

(Chorus)
Can I have a cup of tea please? (3x)
Yeah .. It’s so lovely lovely
Can I have a cup of tea please? (3x)
Yeah .. It’s so lovely lovely

(Verse2)
Can I get a cup of tea please
See life is too short so I don’t often sleep
And when I’m awfully weak I write my pain on the paper
If I touch ones soul it might be enough to save her
Reasons why I never gave up, my Papa tells me save up
He’s working extra hard really just to save us
My parents never understood why I do this
No money or fame why do I still do this
It keeps me sane it keeps me alive
It gives me hope to hold on, the will to survive
And I’ma keep giving ’em more
When I die this is what they gon’ remember me for

(Chorus)
Can I have a cup of tea please? (3x)
Yeah .. It’s so lovely lovely
Can I have a cup of tea please? (3x)
Yeah .. It’s so lovely lovely
