No. 14 - Duet - Hunni-Bun and Tee-To

MIDI File

Hunni-Bun: When I settle with my hubby
In our little home,
He must not be wild and clubby,
He must never roam.
Tee-To: For a change you will be pleading
If he spends his time in reading,
Some excitement you'll be needing,
If he stays at home.
Hunni-Bun: But if I've an invitation
To some gay affair,
He must show an inclination
To escort me there.
Tee-To: If he comes home feeling dreary,
Says your friends all make him weary,
Won't go out with little deary,
What a happy pair!
Both: To each there's some objection,
No man is quite perfection,
For some are slow, and others go
A pace that's very fast.
Hunni-Bun: So take them as you find them.
Tee-To: If they have faults, don't mind them.
Both: Just let him have his own sweet way,
And your honeymoon will last.
   
Hunni-Bun: I have always had a notion
That the man for me
Should exhibit a devotion
Boundless as the sea.
Tee-To: Students of the subject tell us
Loving men are always jealous,
Modern, up-to-date Othellos,
Foolish as can be.
Hunni-Bun: If to others he's attentive,
I will never care;
Constant love shall be preventive,
Watching ev'ry snare.
Tee-To: But when widow amatory
Leads him to conservatory,
Then you'll tell a diff'rent story,
What a happy pair!
Both: To each there's some objection,
No man is quite perfection,
For some delight to flirt each night
With widows that are fast.
Hunni-Bun: So take them as you find them.
Tee-To: If they have faults, don't mind them.
Both: Just let him have his own sweet way,
And your honeymoon will last.
