No. 5 - Song - Marie and Girls - "The Man I Marry."

MIDI File

Marie: Oh, the man that I wed
Must be nice and well-bred,
Thirty, say, or a day or two older.
He must be of a height
That is perfectly right
When I rest on his breast
Or his shoulder!
Then I do not much care
If his hair should be fair,
Or as black as the back of a raven,
But I won't have him if
His moustache is too stiff
Or his cheek isn't sleek, isn't sleek
When it's shaven!
Square and strong or light and slim,
Tom or Dick or Harry!
The man that makes me look at him
Is the man I mean to marry.
Girls: Square and strong or quick and slim,
Tom or Dick or Harry!
Marie: The man that makes me look at him
Is the man I mean to marry.
   
Marie: Now he may be the sort
That is keen upon sport
And will ride at my side taking ditches!
Or a chief of finance
Staking all on a chance,
In a dash for a crash or for riches!
Or the stage he may fill
Or enrapture and thrill
All the throng with a song like Apollo,
But whatever he's done,
I shall know he's the one,
When I see it is he, it is he
I must follow!
He will come and we shall meet,
And I may not tarry!
The man that takes me off my feet
Is the man I have to marry.
Girls: He will come and you shall meet,
And you may not tarry!
The man, the man that takes you off your feet
Is the man you have to marry, to marry.
