No. 23 - Song - Fantana and Geisha - "In my Riksha of Bamboo"

MIDI File

Fantana: If you want to follow me
Thro' the land of Japan so fair to see,
I will take my sunshade,
(It can more than one shade;)
And beneath a sky of blue,
By your side I will ride along with you
In my riksha of bamboo.
Geisha: Is there room for two
In your jinriksha of bamboo?
Fantana: If you will ride with me
In my little riksha of bamboo,
Then ev'ry morning we will go
Where the buds of the lotus lilies blow,
Geisha: Where fragrant cherry blossoms grow.
Fantana: So come along with me in my jinrikisha.
Beneath the bowers of the wild wistaria.
Geisha: In your riksha.
Fantana: And we'll go over the hills and far away
Where nobody works except at play.
Geisha: There life is ever gay
Fantana: ...the live long day.
Far from ev'ry thing but play
We will drift away.
So come along with me in my jinrikisha.
Beneath the bowers of the wild wistaria.
Geisha: In your riksha.
Fantana: And we'll go o'er the hills and far away
Where no one works except at play,
So come with me in my jinrikisha.
