No. 22 - Valse Chantée - "Music and Laughter"

MIDI File

Adele: Music and laughter
Float on the air;
Tears may come after
Why should we care?
Folly holds revel
Let us today
Stoop to his level
Careless and gay!
Merriment hailing
Monarch of all,
Grief unavailing
Who would recall?
Lovers trip lightly
Whispering low;
Eyes sparkle brightly,
Cheeks are aglow!
Ah!
Chorus: Music and laughter
Float on the air;
All: Tears may come after
Why should we care?
Chorus: Folly holds revel
Let us today
Stoop to his level
Careless and gay!
   
Rudolph: This valse our last will be,
And since regret were vain
That I with you and you with me
May never dance again,
Oh, let our thoughts tonight
Live only in the past,
And let us dance with footsteps light
The valse that is our last.
Chorus: How enchanting this!
With a charming girl
In a dreamy skirt
To float and whirl!
And what perfect bliss
When in happy pairs
We can slyly flirt
Upon the stairs.
Adele & Rudolph:
  Oh, let our thoughts tonight
Live only in the past,
And let us dance with footsteps light
The valse that is our last.
Chorus: Music and laughter
Float on the air;
Tears may come after
Why should we care?
Folly holds revel
Let us today
Stoop to his level
Careless and gay!
Turning, twirling,
Flying o'er the ground
Wheeling, whirling
Giddily around;
Swaying, swirling
Dreamily we go
Valsing to and fro!
While music and laughter
Float on the air;
Tears may come after
Why should we care?
Tears may come after
Why should we care
Why, why should we care.
