No. 16 - Song - Felix and Chorus - "Très Bien, Monsieur."

MIDI File

Felix: If the mysteries you're eager to unravel,
Of the world and all the doings of the day,
It is quite unnecessary far to travel,
Ask a waiter in a popular café.
Though he isn't always truthful, no, far from it,
There is wisdom in the stories he relates;
Though the mountain won't come always to Mahomet,
Yet ev'rything will come to him who waits.
Bon soir Monsieur, Bon soir Madame,
et bon soir Mademoiselle,
I take your hat, I take your coat,
I take your wet "ombrelle,"
Some soup for one, some fish for two,
"Vin ordinaire" for three,
And don't forget the omelette,
Très bien monsieur, si, si.
Chorus: Bon soir Monsieur, Bon soir Madame,
et bon soir Mademoiselle,
I take your hat, I take your coat,
I take your wet "ombrelle,"
Some soup for one, some fish for two,
"Vin ordinaire" for three,
And don't forget the omelette,
Très bien monsieur, si, si.
   
Felix: Now I never really knew what "à la carte" meant
Until sev'ral years a waiter I had been,
To a private and particular apartment,
Where some wonders through the keyhole I have seen.
If you only exercise the right discretion,
Choose the proper time to carry in the plates,
You will soon make rapid strides in your profession,
For ev'rything will come to him who waits.
Bon soir Monsieur, Bon soir Madame,
et bon soir Mademoiselle,
I take your hat, I take your coat,
I take your wet "ombrelle,"
Some soup for one, some fish for two,
"Vin ordinaire" for three,
And don't forget the omelette,
Très bien monsieur, si, si.
Chorus: Bon soir Monsieur, Bon soir Madame,
et bon soir Mademoiselle,
I take your hat, I take your coat,
I take your wet "ombrelle,"
Some soup for one, some fish for two,
"Vin ordinaire" for three,
And don't forget the omelette,
Très bien monsieur, si, si.
