No. 22 - Duet - Stephanie and Laski, with Chorus - "Change Partners."

MIDI File

Laski: If we marry ever as I trust,
Stephanie: You're so very clever that we must.
Laski: Say you will love me still,
Never flirt with any other!
Stephanie: If a very pretty man I see,
Laski: It would be a pity that should be.
Stephanie: Then my dear, do not fear!
I'll regard him as a brother!
Chorus: She'll regard him as a brother!
Both: Life's a dance, let me (so you) take one!
Men advance, why not (must you) take one?
What can hurt if I/you flirt
When I'm true still to you?
Chorus: Change partners, change partners,
Life is but a ball;
You can reach a hand to each,
You can throw a smile to all!
Change partners, change partners,
Till the ball is past,
But you/I have had the first dance,
And he/she shall have the last!
And he/she shall have the last!
   
Stephanie: When we're on our married honeymoon,
Laski: That trip will be carried out quite soon.
Stephanie: You must mind I don't find
You have seen a girl and kiss'd her!
Laski: If of any little girl I'm fond,
Stephanie: Is your love a brittle worthless bond!
Laski: Then my sweet, I entreat
You'll regard her as a sister!
Chorus: Please regard her as a sister!
Both: Life's a dance, so you (let me) take one!
Girls advance, must you (why not) take one?
What can hurt if you/I flirt
When I'm true still to you?
Chorus: Change partners, change partners,
Life is but a ball;
You can reach a hand to each,
You can blow a kiss to all!
Change partners, change partners,
Till the ball is past,
But you/I have had the first dance,
And he/she shall have the last!
And he/she shall have the last!
