No. 16 - Waltz Song - June and Chorus - "The Early Morning."

MIDI File

June: It's long after twelve,
Time that the moon went home to bed.
No hurry for us,
Wait till the sky turns rosy red.
We're here to enjoy ourselves,
There's not the slightest doubt,
Let's stop till the dicky-birds wake
And the sun comes out.
To be so lively this time o' morning
A lot of simple folk might shock;
Altho' the daylight may give us warning,
Pay no attention to the clock.
One, two, three, four —  let it strike.
We'll leave when we like.
It's long after twelve,
Time that the moon went home to bed.
No hurry for us,
Wait till the sky turns rosy red.
We're here to enjoy ourselves,
There's not the slightest doubt,
Let's stop till the dicky-birds wake
And the sun comes out!
Chorus: It's long after twelve,
Time that the moon went home to bed.
No hurry for us,
Wait till the sky turns rosy red.
We're here to enjoy ourselves,
There's not the slightest doubt,
Let's stop till the dicky-birds wake
And the sun comes out!
