No. 12 - Act II Opening Chorus

MIDI File

Sing-Song girls: June is a love-song,
Sweet is the measure,
Time for idle leisure,
Time for jest and pleasure.
June is a love-song,
Sweet is the measure,
Worry is barred from this land of morning calm.
In the leaves we read a message,
Ev'ry bloom contains a rhyme;
On the breeze there comes the echo
Of the distant temple's chime.
Here where shadows soft are weaving,
Here where perfume fills the air,
Here where voices blend in sweetest measure,
We are free from guile or care.
Here where gentle flow'rs are blooming,
Here where girls are young and fair,
Here where all in youth and sunshine,
We are free from guile or care.
Wistaria, Wistaria,
June is a love-song,
Sweet is the measure,
Time for idle leisure,
Time for jest and pleasure.
June is a love-song,
Sweet is the measure,
Free from guile and care.
Hunni-Bun: Yes, free,
Sing-Song girls: Free from guile and care.
Hunni-Bun: ...are we,
Sing-Song girls: Free from guile and care are we,
Free from guile and care are we.
