No. 18 - Song - Marjorie - "She's Acting."

MIDI File

Marjorie: An actress smiles and an actress sighs,
An actress hopes and fears or cries,
But ev'ry thought and look
Is defined in her book.
What then if she should be sad as night,
'Tis not the mood of her heart.
What if her way be supremely bright,
It's only her part.
Don't trust her smiles,
Don't trust her wiles,
You men must not be too exacting.
Don't trust her sighs,
Don't trust those eyes,
She's only an actress, she's acting.
Don't trust her smiles,
Don't trust her wiles,
You men must not be too exacting.
Don't trust her sighs,
Don't trust those eyes,
She's only an actress, she's acting.
she's acting.
   
  An actress sups and an actress dines,
And sometimes takes most expensive wines;
But that you must not mind,
After all, she is kind.
She'll hear your troubles and then some day
She'll kiss your tears away.
Perhaps in the future she'll make you feel
That her kisses are real.
If from her smile,
Just for a while,
You think that her heart you're attracting,
Question her eyes,
And love replies,
But she's only an actress, she's acting.
If from her smile,
Just for a while,
You think that her heart you're attracting,
Question her eyes,
And love replies,
But she's only an actress, she's acting.
she's acting.
   
  But when the curtain at night rings down,
If brings her freedom to smile or frown;
Her self she may reveal,
Her thoughts need not conceal,
Then if she greets you with tender tone,
You will gladly own,
Now that she lays aside her part,
You have found her heart,
Then when you sigh at saying "Good-bye,"
The moment of parting protracting,
Love growing wise has opened your eyes,
She's an actress, but now is not acting.
Then when you sigh at saying "Good-bye,"
The moment of parting protracting,
Love growing wise has opened your eyes,
She's an actress, but now is not acting,
not acting.
