MIDI File

Marjorie: When we were children, going
Through meadows after mowing,
Geoffrey: We used to play among the hay,
Big armfuls fiercely throwing!
Marjorie: But soon our war was ended,
And on the hay extended,
Geoffrey: In peace we'd make a feast of cake,
That cake was simply splendid!
Little girl!
Marjorie: Little boy!
Both: We would have such fun, in the summer sun!
Nobody stupid to check the joy
Marjorie: of one little girl, and one little boy!
One little, one little
Both: girl, and boy!
   
Marjorie: When all the woods were ringing,
With birds of springtime singing,
Geoffrey: We'd take a board and length of cord
And gaily go a-swinging!
Marjorie: Then to and fro, unsteady,
Our swing would twist and eddy;
Geoffrey: And if it broke, 'twas but a joke —
Marjorie: The grass was always ready!
Geoffrey: Little girl!
Marjorie: Little boy!
Both: We would swing so high that we seemed to fly!
Life was a game, and the world a toy,
Marjorie: For one little girl, and one little boy,
One little, one little
Both: girl, and boy!
   
Marjorie: How all the lanes remind me
Of happy days behind me.
Geoffrey: Our dearest freak was hide and seek,
Marjorie: I hid and you would find me.
Geoffrey: I heard you faintly calling,
And then a silence falling —
Marjorie: You pass'd me by beneath your eye,
With blindness quite appalling!
Geoffrey: Little girl!
Marjorie: Little boy!
Both: But you don't forget how we always met!
We were not distant or cold, or coy,
Marjorie: As one little girl, and one little boy,
One little, one little
Both: girl, and boy!
