No. 29 - Extra Duet - Millicent and Meebles

MIDI File

Millicent: Horatio, do you remember?
Meebles: My dearest, how could I forget?
Millicent: In Springtime we roamed through the meadows,
Meebles: My boots got uncommonly wet!
Millicent: The lambkins were frisking all round us,
The birds carolled early and late.
Meebles: The thingummys peeped from the what-nots,
And the gay umpy-doodleum called to its mate!
Both: O, that we two were Maying,
As in the days of yore;
Millicent: Roaming the dim, shady copses,
Meebles: Dodging the gnats and the wopses.
Both: Over the hills together,
Happily we would stray,
Meebles: ...we would stray.
Millicent: While the lark was a-hovering over its nest,
And the wind came a-whispering out of the west,
Meebles: And I wished I'd been wearing a much thicker vest.
Both: In the merry, merry, merry month of May!
   
Millicent: And when the long day full of rapture
Meebles: Was drawing at last to its close,
Millicent: Then homeward we strolled in the twilight,
Meebles: While cock-chafers buzzed round my nose.
Millicent: All Nature was sinking to slumber,
But naught of the hour did we reck,
Meebles: A nanny-goat kissed me good evening,
And an Alderney cow came and sobbed down my neck.
Both: O, that we two were Maying,
As in the days of yore;
Millicent: Taking such long, lovely rambles,
Meebles:  Catching our toes in the brambles.
Both: Over the hills together,
Happily we would stray,
Meebles: ...we would stray.
Millicent: While the nightingale warbled a soft lullaby,
And the stars one by one twinkled out in the sky.
Meebles: And we sat on a gate where the paint wasn't dry.
Both: In the merry, merry, merry month of May!
In the merry, merry, merry month of May!
