No. 33 - Laughing Song - Adèle - "What would women do?"

MIDI File

Adele: Oh, what would women do, ha, ha!
If men were all like you, ha, ha!
Such masters of the pretty ways
That lovers find so sweet.
Your burning words, of course, ha, ha!
Would carry them by force, ha, ha!
No eye but yours a glance displays
With passion so replete.
Then spare our young affections,
And use your charms with care,
With girls in all directions
Don't act the gay Lothair.
Ha! ha! ha! ha! You?
Ha! ha! ha! ha! Ha! ha! ha! ha!
Don't act the gay Lothair!
Oh my dear, much I fear
You will one day go too far,
Careful be, Ha, ha, ha, ha!
Mon ami, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Smiling so, do you know
Quite how dangerous you are?
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
   
  You really must not be, ha, ha!
So very fond of me, ha, ha!
Such pleasure in my company
It isn't right to take!
I think you've turned my head, ha, ha!
With all the things you've said, ha, ha!
And if you prove untrue to me,
I'm sure my heart will break!
Your ardent adoration,
Your fascinating ways
Make just the combination
A woman's wits to daze.
Ha! ha! ha! ha! You?
Ha! ha! ha! ha! Ha! ha! ha! ha!
A woman's wits to daze!
Oh my dear, much I fear
You will one day go too far,
Careful be, Ha, ha, ha, ha!
Mon ami, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Smiling so, do you know
Quite how dangerous you are?
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Ha, ha, ha, ha!
