Anyone For Tennis
Cream Lyrics

Twice upon a time in the valley of tear
The auctioneer is bidding for a box of fading years
And the elephants are dancing on the graves of squealing mice.
Anyone for tennis, wouldn't that be nice?

And the ice creams are all melting on the streets of bloody beer
While beggars stain the pavement with fluorescent Christmas cheer
And the Bentley driving guru is putting up his price.
Anyone for tennis, wouldn't that be nice?
And the prophets in the boutiques give out messages of hope
With jingle bells and fairy tales and blind colliding scopes
And you can tell they're all the same underneath the pretty lies.
Anyone for tennis, wouldn't that be nice?

The yellow Buddhist monk is burning brightly at the zoo
You can bring a bowl of rice and a glass of water too
And fate is setting up the chessboard while death rolls out the dice.
Anyone for tennis, wouldn't the be nice?

I'm surprised Jack didn't hit Ginger with that tennis racket when he had the chance.

Paul Fuller

He probably did .

Robert Sloan

Ginger would have stabbed him.

A very underated Cream song and Eric's voice is great in this tune.

Sick side Worldwide

I second the motion

Aaron Goldstein

I didn't realize Jack Bruce was so much shorter than Ginger Baker & Eric Clapton. He must have been a foot shorter than Baker. But he had a big, big voice.

Akkora kamui

@Jaicoxki are you sure? he looks a lot shorter in this, but in most pictures he doesn’t look much shorter than eric who i think is 5’9 or 5’10. could just be a perspective

Erin Smith

His voice was astonishing.


Ana Di he’s 6’1”
That 6’4” stat is garbage

Cook moore

And Steve Marriott
