Genie: When Wagner had the lamp,
He came one day to me,
"Oh, I am in an awful fix
And can't get out," said he,
"For in my latest work
I cannot end Act II;
Of ten Finales none will suit,
I don't know what to do."
All: He is the nicest man I ever work'd for,
I'm/He's telling you the truth
so do not doubt me/him;
He was clever, I/he'll admit,
And talented a bit,
But he couldn't do a blessed thing without me/him.
   
Genie: When Forrest had the lamp,
He ruled the local stage,
I really show'd him how to act
And made him all the rage.
You'd ne'er have heard of Ned
If me he'd never met;
A lot of things I taught to him
The rest are doing yet.
All: He was the nicest man I ever work'd for,
I'm/He's telling you the truth
so do not doubt me/him;
He was clever, I/he'll admit,
And talented a bit,
But he couldn't do a blessed thing without me/him.
