No. 17 - Song - Dudley and Chorus - "Any old night."

MIDI File

Dudley: Why people rave about wonderful nights
Is one thing I never could see;
I've play'd the game and I've seen all the sights,
So you can take it from me;
Any old night is a wonderful night
If you're there with a wonderful girl,
Whether you stroll in romantic moonlight
Or in a ballroom you whirl.
I've seen the glad nights, the mad nights,
the dry nights, the wet,
But there are some nights I never forget.
Any old night is a wonderful night
If you're there with a wonderful girl.
Chorus: Any old night is a wonderful night
If you're there with a wonderful girl,
Whether you stroll in romantic moonlight
Or in a ballroom you whirl.
I've seen the glad nights, the mad nights,
the dry nights, the wet,
But there are some nights I never forget.
Any old night is a wonderful night
If you're there with a wonderful girl.
   
Dudley: When people talk of some wonderful place,
A place they say no one should miss,
Why should I care? Round the world let them race;
My own opinion is this:
Any old place is a wonderful place
If you're there with a wonderful girl,
Climate has nothing to do with the case,
Any old flag may unfurl.
It may be Venice or Brixton,
or Putney, or Rome,
Palace or flat, you don't want to go home.
Any old place is a wonderful place
If you're there with a wonderful girl.
Chorus: Any old place is a wonderful place
If you're there with a wonderful girl,
Climate has nothing to do with the case,
Any old flag may unfurl.
It may be Venice or Brixton,
or Putney, or Rome,
Palace or flat, you don't want to go home.
Any old place is a wonderful place
If you're there with a wonderful girl.
