MIDI File

Marie: I have met a man.
Girls: You have met a man.
Marie: I will draw him as I saw him,
That is if I can!
Girls: You're the smartest lady artist,
We're sure that you can!
Marie: He has got a nose,
Girls: So we should suppose,
Marie: Eyes with lashes.
Dots and dashes have to stand for those.
Alexis: She is fetching
When she's sketching,
What a lovely pose!
Colour like a rose!
What a lovely pose!
Marie: That's a vignette
Of the man that I met,
It's a face I shall never forget!
Though I haven't quite
Got the eye-brows right,
It's a bit of clever black and white.
   
Marie: He has lips like this,
Girls: Are they nice to kiss?
Marie: Don't be horrid!
But his forehead
Is something like this!
Girls: To discover such a lover
Would be simply bliss!
Marie: That's his curly hair,
Girls: All those twiddles there.
Marie: I have black'd it,
But, in fact, it is extremely fair.
Alexis: Should it strike me
As too like me,
I must have a care,
Yes, I will beware,
I must have a care!
Marie: That's a vignette
Of the man that I met,
It's a face I shall never forget!
If my name now I write
That will make it quite
Worth a hundred guineas black and white.
Girls: That's a vignette
Of the man she has met,
It's a face...
Marie: It's a face I shall never forget!
Girls: If your name now you write
That will make it quite
Worth a hundred guineas...
Alexis: Worth a hundred guineas
All: Black and white,
Black and white.
