No. 2 - Song - "Gay Bohemiah" - Carbonnet and Chorus

MIDI File

Carbonnet: Oh come and peep
When the world's asleep
At Gay Bohemiah
Chorus: At Gay Bohemiah
Carbonnet: And much you'll see
That you'll ask of me
Mais qu'estce que c'est que ca
Chorus: Mais qu'estce que c'est que ca
Carbonnet: For lots of things we do, you know
Are not precisely "comme il faut"
But that you'll find is often so
In Gay Bohemiah
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah
For Gay Bohemiah
To some extent, no doubt, it's true
We're not particular what we do
No, not particular what we do
In Gay Bohemiah
Chorus: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah
For Gay Bohemiah.
To some extent, no doubt, it's true
We're not particular what we do
No, not particular what we do
All: In Gay Bohemiah.
   
Carbonnet: The wild delights
Of the days and nights
In Gay Bohemiah
Chorus: In Gay Bohemiah
Carbonnet: Would suit the chaste
And luxurious taste
Of a Sultan or a Shah
Chorus: Of a Sultan or a Shah
Carbonnet: And this opinion still is rife
You're bound to lead a shocking life
Or bolt with someone else's wife
In Gay Bohemiah
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah
For Gay Bohemiah
When every kind of life you've tried
You'll find a lot of the shady side
Yes, find a lot of the shady side
In Gay Bohemiah
Chorus: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah
For Gay Bohemiah.
To some extent, no doubt, it's true
We're not particular what we do
No, not particular what we do
All: In Gay Bohemiah.
   
Carbonnet: No sneers we cast
On a doubtful past
In Gay Bohemiah
Chorus: In Gay Bohemiah
Carbonnet: Nor mind a bit
If you should commit
Some indiscreet faux pas
Chorus: Some indiscreet faux pas
Carbonnet: For though our ways are far more free
Than those of High Societee
We're just what we pretend to be
In Gay Bohemiah
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah
For Gay Bohemiah
Of course, it's only fair to add
If we're not so good, we're not so bad
If we're not so good, we're not so bad
In Gay Bohemiah.
Chorus: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah
For Gay Bohemiah
To some extent, no doubt, it's true
We're not particular what we do
No, not particular what we do
All: In Gay Bohemiah.
