No. 2 - Song - Moozoo-May and Chorus

MIDI File

Moozoo-May: The rose of June can feel no sorrow,
It never droops or says "Ah me,"
It never sees a sad tomorrow,
But greets each day with rapture free.
Why should a girl so young and charming
Be less confiding than the rose?
For me this life holds naught alarming,
Each morning will new joys disclose.
Chorus: She's like the rose that blooms in June.
Moozoo-May: I'm like the rose that blooms in June.
Chorus: She gives no thought to afternoon.
Moozoo-May: I give no thought to afternoon.
Like a rosebud red I can hang my head,
I can sway and pose like the drooping rose.
But I'm not a flow'r of a passing hour,
I'm a happy little singing girl,
I'm a jolly, pleasure bringing girl.
For I'm a dainty little Moozoo-May,
Clever little Moozoo-May,
When the shamosen I'm playing,
Come the men from far and near.
Most bewitching Moozoo-May,
Quite entrancing Moozoo-May,
Fascinating, captivating, little Moozoo-May.
Chorus: Dainty little Moozoo-May,
Clever little Moozoo-May,
When the shamosen she's playing,
Come the men from far and near.
Most bewitching Moozoo-May,
Quite entrancing Moozoo-May,
Fascinating, captivating, little Moozoo-May.
   
Moozoo-May: The rose of June is not retiring,
It wears a manner most serene,
And smiles on other buds aspiring
To be as lovely as their queen.
Why should a girl of matchless beauty
Her many charming traits disown?
If she excels it is her duty
To lift her head and bloom alone.
Chorus: She's like the rose in this respect.
Moozoo-May: I'm like the rose in this respect.
Chorus: A fragrant thing without defect.
Moozoo-May: A fragrant thing without defect.
Like a rosebud red I can hang my head,
I can sway and pose like the drooping rose.
But I'm not a flow'r of a passing hour,
I'm a happy little singing girl,
I'm a jolly, pleasure bringing girl.
For I'm a dainty little Moozoo-May,
Clever little Moozoo-May,
When the shamosen I'm playing,
Come the men from far and near.
Most bewitching Moozoo-May,
Quite entrancing Moozoo-May,
Fascinating, captivating, little Moozoo-May.
Chorus: Dainty little Moozoo-May,
Clever little Moozoo-May,
When the shamosen she's playing,
Come the men from far and near.
Most bewitching Moozoo-May,
Quite entrancing Moozoo-May,
Fascinating, captivating, little Moozoo-May.
