No. 3 - Song - Militza - "Not a little bit like you."

MIDI File

Militza: The man I really ought to have lov'd,
Is a high-bred hall-marked hero;
No common clod, but a Grecian god,
With a Roman nose like Nero!
And an eye whose stare will raise the hair
Of the man he's introduced to,
And a pair of fine moustaches
turning up in little dashes
As a certain Emperor's used to!
Well, that doesn't sound like you, dear,
Not a little bit like you;
For your pair of eyes are a common size,
Of a fishy, wishy-washy blue!
And you can't look down your nose and frown,
As the man I want could do;
He will have a nose that he can look down,
Not a stubby little snub, like you!
   
  The man I really ought to have lov'd
Should be six feet high, or over,
With a grip of steel and an iron heel
Like a proud piratic rover!
With shoulders trim and a figure slim,
So slim that you needn't force it.
If you ever cared to bet him
it was possible to get him
In a twenty-four inch corset!
Well, that doesn't sound like you, dear,
Not a little bit like you;
For you keep your chest right down your vest
And your waist is big enough for two!
For if I marry you, my friend,
I should have to tie your shoe,
And I want a man who can sometimes bend,
Not a tubby little scrub like you!
