MIDI File

Chorus: Open windows, open doors,
Sprinkle tea-leaves on the floors,
Cover chairs with dainty chintz,
Curtains hang of creamy tints;
Paint and polish, scour and clean,
Where the fire was stand a screen,
Dimity upon the stair,
Flowers, flowers, ev'rywhere.
Ladies: Apple-blossoms, sprig of may,
Lilac and laburnam gay,
Hyacinth, and don't forget
Humble Mistress Mignonette,
Gilly-flow'r and marguerite,
Buttercup and meadow-sweet,
These the presents she will bring,
That is why we welcome Spring.

Clerks: Have you brought my luncheon, little Midinette?
All the morning we have fasted.
Girls: Since your patience has so bravely lasted,
Can't it last a little longer yet?
Clerks: What have you to tempt us?
Lettuces and bread,
Sandwiches of some saucisson,
Girls: Here's a slice with such a nice big piece on,
Clerks: Thanks!
Girls: Now come and see the monkeys fed!
Please don't eat so fast!
Your manners are the worst!
Always take the piece that's nearest.
Clerks: Don't stand talking, get a corkscrew, dearest!
We are struggling with a thing called thirst!
Girls: We would like to wander underneath the trees,
When you've done your luncheon-party!
Clerks: Here's your health, my Midinette!
Drink hearty!
Girls: Thanks!
Clerks: We're ready for desert now, please!
