MIDI File

Rosalie: When I was a child about so high,
And feeding the ducks and chickens!
Chorus: The chickens! The chickens!
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Rosalie: If ever I get to town, said I,
You'll see that I'll play the dickens!
Chorus: The dickens! The dickens!
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Rosalie: I'll know a lot of nice young men,
And I'll be dressed like a lady then!
Oh! tol de rol de rol!
Said I to my old doll,
I'll come back soon on an afternoon
With a nice new parasol!
Chorus: Oh! tol de rol de rol!
Said she to her old doll,
She'd come back soon on an afternoon
With a nice new parasol!
   
Boniface: When I have been slaving at my desk
At wearisome legal cases!
Chorus: At cases! At cases!
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Boniface: I long for a lane that's picturesque
And fitted for fond embraces!
Chorus: Embraces! Embraces!
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Boniface: I've brought my girl to a rural scene,
But still a barrier comes between!
Oh! tol de rol de rol!
In lanes where lovers loll,
It does get so in the way, you know,
Does that awkward parasol!
Chorus: Oh! tol de rol de rol!
In lanes where lovers loll,
It does get so in the way, you know,
Does that awkward parasol!
