No. 10 - Act II Opening Chorus - "The Mannequin Ball."

MIDI File

Chorus: Oh, the Mannequin, Mannequin,
Mannequin, Mannequin Ball!
Of all the cheery shows
To which half London goes,
We should certainly, certainly, certainly, certainly call
The very best of all
The Mannequin Ball!
Oh, the Mannequin, Mannequin,
Mannequin, Mannequin Ball!
It's just the thing, no doubt,
The nuts will talk about!
You'll feel awfully, awfully, awfully, awfully small,
If you cannot recall
The Mannequin Ball! The Ball!
Ah! ah! ah! so won't you come along,
Won't you come along
Where the fun is going strong?
Hi! hi! hi! hi! just get a move on you,
For we're going on the rag the whole night through!
Ah! ah! ah! so won't you come along,
Won't you come along
Where the fun is going strong?
Hi! hi! hi! hi! just get a move on you,
For we're going on the rag the whole night through!
And the floor we'll gaily tread
Till the moon and the stars have done shining overhead,
When the sky's growing pale,
Then a taxi we will hail,
And we'll all go home to bed.
And the floor we'll gaily tread
Till the moon and the stars have done shining overhead,
When the sky's growing pale,
Then a taxi we will hail,
And we'll all go home to bed.
Oh, the Mannequin, Mannequin,
Mannequin, Mannequin Ball!
Of all the cheery shows
To which half London goes,
We should certainly, certainly, certainly, certainly call
The very best of all
The Mannequin Ball!
Oh, the Mannequin, Mannequin,
Mannequin, Mannequin Ball!
It's just the thing, no doubt,
The nuts will talk about!
You'll feel awfully, awfully, awfully, awfully small,
If you cannot recall
The Mannequin Ball! The Ball!
