No. 7 - Song - The Queen and Chorus - "Naughty, just for once."

MIDI File

Queen: A Queen may rule a loyal land,
And wear a crown of gold,
And no one seems to understand
She does just what she's told.
But oh! if I could have my way,
What changes would be seen!
I'd love to be, for one short day,
A merry mad-cap Queen!
Chorus: She'd love to be, for one short day,
A merry mad-cap Queen!
Queen: Oh! do let me be naughty,
Just for once!
Ladies: Just for once!
Queen: Naughty, naughty, just for once!
Don't be so prim and haughty,
Just for once!
Chorus: Just for once!
Queen: Haughty, haughty, just for once!
I'll start with my tutor,
And see what he would think
Of mice in his book-shelves,
And beetles in his ink.
Oh! I should like to be naughty,
Just for once!
Chorus: Just for once!
Queen: Naughty, naughty, just for once!
   
Queen: I often wish that I'd been born
A happy little child
Whose frock is nearly always torn,
Who runs about half wild;
Then once a year, perhaps I'd stay
A weekend at the sea,
And that's a longer holiday
Than ever comes to me.
Chorus: Then once a year, perhaps she'd stay
A weekend at the sea!
Queen: Oh! do let me be naughty,
Just for once!
Ladies: Just for once!
Queen: Naughty, naughty, just for once!
Don't be so prim and haughty,
Just for once!
Chorus: Just for once!
Queen: Naughty, naughty, just for once!
I'd go down to Margate,
And paddle in the sea,
With shrimps for my breakfast,
And winkles for my tea!
Oh! I should like to be naughty,
Just for once!
Chorus: Just for once!
Queen: Naughty, naughty, just for once!
