No. 21 - Song - Baroness and Chorus - "The very first time."

MIDI File

Baroness: I wanted to obtain advice
From a lawyer at his leisure;
We thought it would be very nice
To mingle law and pleasure.
And so we came and dined, in fact,
And got on fast and faster,
Till I discover'd I was track'd
By my married lord and master!
What consequences it may bring,
This very risky sort of thing!
It's the very first time
I've done this sort of thing!
Chorus: This sort of thing!
Baroness: I've lunch'd with one or more,
But never dined before;
And though I know it's not a crime
To have one's little fling,
Yet still it is the very first time
I've done this sort of thing!
Chorus: It's the very first time
she's done this sort of thing!
Baroness: This sort of thing!
Chorus: She's lunch'd with one or more,
But never dined before;
And though we know it's not a crime
To have one's little fling,
Yet still it is the very first time
She's done this sort of thing!
   
Baroness: I thought my lawyer would behave
In a proper legal fashion,
But he began to sigh and rave
With wild romantic passion!
He said although he did not know
For all his life he'd miss'd me,
He put his arms around me, so
And before I knew, he kiss'd me!
It made him happy as a king,
This very risky sort of thing!
It's the very first time
I've done this sort of thing!
Chorus: This sort of thing!
Baroness: I thought it was a dream,
And didn't dare to scream.
Of course I've read in prose and rhyme
How lovers kiss and cling,
But still it is the very first time
I've done this sort of thing!
Chorus: It's the very first time
she's done this sort of thing!
Baroness: This sort of thing!
Chorus: She thought it was a dream,
And didn't dare to scream.
Of course we've read in prose and rhyme
How lovers kiss and cling,
But still it is the very first time
She's done this sort of thing!
   
Baroness: It isn't wise to go to law
When the lawyers bill and coo so.
If my petition I withdraw,
My husband too will do so;
Our happy home I will not wreck
By snapping and by snarling,
But throw my arms about his neck
With a cry of "Hubby darling!"
That ought to have him on a string,
This most uncommon sort of thing!
It's the very first time
I'll do this sort of thing!
Chorus: This sort of thing!
Baroness: I'll be a model wife
For his remaining life,
As merry as a wedding chime
I'll wear the wedding ring,
And this shall be the very last time
I'll do this sort of thing!
Chorus: It's the very first time
she's done this sort of thing!
Baroness: This sort of thing!
Chorus: She'll be a model wife
For his remaining life,
As merry as a wedding chime
She'll wear the wedding ring,
And this shall be the very last time
She'll do this sort of thing!
