No. 6 - Trio - Victoria, Henry, and Pedro - "Round the Corner."

MIDI File

Henry: You're looking very sweet,
Can't we arrange to meet
Somewhere by and by?
[Victoria:] It's rather hard to say
If I can slip away — 
Still, I'll have a try.
Pedro: Surely there must be lots and lots
Of quiet spots you know.
Victoria: But all the other men, you see,
Might follow me also.
All: Wherever can we go?
Henry: Meet me round the corner,
Round the corner when
There's no one looking.
Victoria: I'll wait round the corner
Where the other man can't follow me.
Pedro: Just like Jacky Horner,
We must try and find a cosy corner,
All: Well, round the corner,
Where the other fellows round the other corner
Can't see!
   
Henry: There's just a word or two
I want to say to you
When we're quite alone.
Victoria: Ah, yes! You are perhaps
One of those nervous chaps — 
Not the first I've known.
Pedro: I want to gaze into your eyes,
It's hardly wise just here.
Victoria: I see you want a quiet chat — 
We'll manage that, my dear!
All: When no one else is near!
Henry: Meet me round the corner,
Round the corner when
There's no one looking.
Victoria: I'll wait round the corner
Where the other man can't follow me
Pedro: Just like Jacky Horner,
We must try and find a cosy corner,
All: Well, round the corner,
Where the other fellows round the other corner
Can't see!
