No. 20 - Duet - Omee-Omi and Spangle

MIDI File

Omee-Omi: In a wood lived Brother Rabbit,
of a most flirtatious habit.
He would wag his ears at ev'ry Bunny that he'd meet.
No one in the world of fashion
Thought him capable of passion,
Till one day he up and took a little wife so sweet.
Spangle: On the wedding day his sister
Met the happy bride, and kissed her,
But like ev'ry sister she was doubtful of the match.
Omee-Omi: For she whispered to her brother,
"She'd have married any other,
She is not entitled to the season's only catch."
Spangle: Brother Rabbit simply said:
"She's the one I want to wed,
And to all who ask me why,
I can only make reply:
She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know,
Her smile is more beguiling
And her voice is soft and low.
No other may discover why I dote upon her so;
She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know.
Both: She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know,
Her smile is more beguiling
And her voice is soft and low.
No other may discover why I dote upon her so;
She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know."
   
Spangle: Brother Rabbit doubtless knew some
Friends, who came with faces gruesome,
Saying to him: "Well, old man, it seems a great mistake,
For this most designing Bunny
Simply took you for your money.
We are sorry you have made this matrimonial break."
Omee-Omi: I suppose that each relation
Showed a certain hesitation
When it came to throwing rice and wishing longest life.
Spangle: And when I like Brother Rabbit
Seek your hand and quickly grab it,
All my friends will wonder why I chose you for my wife.
To those skeptics I will say:
"She has won my heart away;
And if you would ask me why,
I can only make reply:
She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know,
Her smile is more beguiling
And her voice is soft and low.
No other may discover why I dote upon her so;
She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know.
Both: She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know,
Her smile is more beguiling
And her voice is soft and low.
No other may discover why I dote upon her so;
She's just a little diff'rent from the others that I know."
