No. 7 - Darby and Joan Duet - Hawkins and Jessie

MIDI File

Jessie: You be my Darby and I'll be your Joan,
We'll settle down in a home all alone.
You can't do anything I cannot do.
I cannot live without you.
Hawkins: I'll be your Darby and you'll be my Joan,
What's yours is mine and what's mine is my own.
You must tell all of your secrets to me,
I will tell nothing to thee.
Both: Just like Darby and Joan,
Two lives, never alone.
Together we'll glide side by side,
Same groom at a hundred,
Same sixteen year bride.
Not with fads of our own,
Always picking a bone.
But with your permission,
a second edition of Darby and Joan.
Chorus: Just like Darby and Joan,
Two lives, never alone.
Together we'll glide side by side,
Same groom at a hundred,
Same sixteen year bride.
Not with fads of our own,
Always picking a bone.
But with your permission,
a second edition of Darby and Joan.
   
Jessie: Though you may think me an ugly old ape,
Still I am proud of my kangaroo shape;
You won't believe it, but it's all my own,
And only cost half a bone.
Hawkins: Though I am somewhat rheumatic and gray,
I can sit up and turn night into day;
And with a magic surprising to see,
I can turn gin into me.
Both: Just like Darby and Joan,
Two lives, never alone.
Together we'll glide side by side,
Same groom at a hundred,
Same sixteen year bride.
Not with fads of our own,
Always picking a bone.
But with your permission,
a second edition of Darby and Joan.
Chorus: Just like Darby and Joan,
Two lives, never alone.
Together we'll glide side by side,
Same groom at a hundred,
Same sixteen year bride.
Not with fads of our own,
Always picking a bone.
But with your permission,
a second edition of Darby and Joan.
