MIDI File

Carbonnet: I'm glad that Paris pleases you,
Maud: It charms me altogether!
Carbonnet: I hope you're charmed with Frenchmen too!
Maud: We're having lovely weather.
Carbonnet: Oh, yes, delightful weather!
Maud: You paint some pretty models here —
Carbonnet: My chances much too few are.
Maud: Nice-looking girls they all appear —
Carbonnet: But not as nice as you are!
Both: But not as nice as you/we are!
Can this be love, oh, can it be?
Peut-etre non, peut-etre oui!
I wonder what he/she thinks of me,
And how I really strike him/her?
Hélas, mon couer est agité!
We never met before today,
But oh! I am compelled to say
I like him/her! yes, I like him/her!
   
Carbonnet: Your best of friends I want to be,
Maud: You show no hesitancy.
Carbonnet: An English girl's the girl for me.
Maud: A Frenchman is my fancy.
Carbonnet: You mean that I'm your fancy?
Maud: I did not go as far as that.
Carbonnet: It really doesn't matter.
Maud: But oh! My heart goes pit-a-pat!
Carbonnet: And mine goes pitter patter,
Both: And mine goes pitter patter!
Can this be love, oh, can it be?
Peut-etre non, peut-etre oui!
I wonder what he/she thinks of me,
And how I really strike him/her?
Hélas, mon couer est agité!
We never met before today,
But oh! I am compelled to say
I like him/her! I like him/her!
