No. 18 - Song - Pedro - "Pink and White"

MIDI File

Pedro: If from your window you just take a peep,
On a warm sunny day,
All seems so bright, sort of pink and white,
Pale pink blossom, white sprig of May;
Pale pink and white,
You are such a delightful colour!
Pink and white,
Rv'rything pink and white,
A beautiful girl,
And a wonderful moonlight night;
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!
Pink and white,
Ev'rything pink and white,
A beautiful girl,
And a wonderful moonlight night;
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!

If you're inclined to be gloomy and glum,
And you think things look blue,
Love, I feel sure, is the only cure;
That soon alters all things for you,
Making them fade into one sort of shade
For lovers.
Pink and white,
Ev'rything pink and white,
A Midsummer rose,
And a neck that is slim and slight,
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!
Pink and white,
Ev'rything pink and white,
A Midsummer rose,
And a neck that is slim and slight,
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!

P'raps at a ball with your partner you sit
In a nice cosy spot;
Just she and you, only room for two,
While you talk of—  no matter what;
You may catch sight
Of some nice pink and white beside you.
Pink and white,
Ev'rything pink and white!
An ankle divine,
And a frill in the soft lamp-light,
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!
Pink and white,
Ev'rything pink and white!
An ankle divine,
And a frill in the soft lamp-light,
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!

Then later on you may beg for a dance
While the band plays once more;
So off you go to a waltz that's slow,
You seem floating over the floor;
She's such a dear,
And her head's very near your shoulder.
Pink and white,
Ev'rything pink and white!
A sweet pair of lips,
And a glove round her waist held tight.
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!
Pink and white,
Ev'rything pink and white!
A sweet pair of lips,
And a glove round her waist held tight.
Ev'rything in the world is quite all right
When the world is a wonderful,
Beautiful pink and white!
