MIDI File

Millicent: I am feeling quite a wreck,
Diana: Well you are a trifle torn!
Millicent: All my hair is down my neck.
Diana: That is how it's often worn!
Millicent: Am I looking very old,
Forty-five or even more?
Diana: Well, if I had not been told,
I should guess you forty-four!
Millicent: Thank you, dear, you are kind!
Diana: Never fear, don't you mind!
Though you've had a nasty shake-up,
You just want a bit of make-up!
Diana: Just a little black round the eyes,
Millicent: Just a little black round the eyes,
Diana: Just a little red on the lips,
Millicent: Just a little red on the lips,
Diana: When that is done,
Millicent: When that is done,
Diana: You're like the sun.
Millicent: You're like the sun.
Diana: After a partial eclipse!
Millicent: An eclipse quite visible at Greenwich.
Diana: Oh! it will be such a surprise
Millicent: Oh! it will be such a surprise
Diana: When you are as fresh as a rose;
Millicent: as a rose;
Diana: Looking prettier and prouder
Millicent: With a little touch of powder,
Both: Just a tiny touch of powder on your nose!
   
Diana: I am like a rag today;
Millicent: Yes, you're rather weird and wild;
Diana: And what will my lover say?
Millicent: Better not inquire, my child!
Diana: He will tell me I am still
Just as blooming as a pink;
Millicent: As a gentleman he will,
But I know what he will thnk!
Diana: Really, don't be a cat!
Millicent: No, we won't speak of that!
Have a rest, and when you wake up,
You just need a bit of make-up!
Diana: Just a little black round the eyes,
Millicent: Just a little black round the eyes,
Diana: Just a little red on the lips,
Millicent: Just a little red on the lips,
Diana: When that is done,
Millicent: When that is done,
Diana: You're like the sun
Millicent: You're like the sun.
Diana: After a partial eclipse!
Millicent: an eclipse quite visible at Greenwich.
Diana: Oh! it will be such a surprise
Millicent: Oh! it will be such a surprise
Diana: When you are as fresh as a rose;
Millicent: as a rose;
Diana: Looking prettier and prouder
Millicent: With a little touch of powder
Both: Just a tiny touch of powder on your nose!
