No. 8 - Song - Gerard - "It's a beautiful day to-day."

MIDI File

Gerald: It's a funny thought, how often in my life
I've had breakfast all alone.
In an hour or so I have to take a wife;
What is more, the wife's my own.
Marriages, you know, were never in my line--
I shall have to go to mine.
Well, thank Heav'n the weather's fine!
Take life as you find it;
I have lost and I must pay;
But I don't mind it,
It's a beautiful day today,
It's a wonderful day today!
   
  It's the guv'nor's fault —
I couldn't stick his jaw,
Lost my temper more or less,
I said I'd propose to any girl I saw.
Well, I did-- the girl said, Yes!
Pretty rough on her and twice as bad for me,
I suppose it's got to be,
Is this coffee now, or tea?
Take life as you find it;
That tea tastes more like hay,
But I don't mind it,
It's a beautiful day today,
It's a marvellous day today!
   
  Friends are sure to say
that I have been a fool,
That is what I'm always told,
They may save their breath
to keep their bacon cool;
I've been letting some get cold.
Well, that breakfast is the worst I ever ate,
I will have a cigarette,
All the exercise I'll get.
Take life as you find it;
That's all there is to say,
But I don't mind it,
It's a beautiful day today,
Yes, I don't think it's rained once today!
