No. 25 - Extra Sextet - "Take Your Pretty Partner."

MIDI File

Marjorie: When rushing round the whirl
Of parties in Society,
To flirt with any girl
Is not an impropriety.
Grasmere: You smile at her, she laughs at you,
You make a little joke or two;
It may be old, it may be new,
There's nothing like variety.
Nan: But when you're going to a ball,
There's one you think of first of all.
Rajah: And you feel that the world has become more gay,
When your little pet partner comes your way!
Men: Take your pretty partner at the ball,
Girls: Take your partner!
Men: Take your pretty partner at the ball.
Girls: Take your partner!
All: She who dances best of all,
She whose charms will never pall,
Is your own pet partner for the ball.
   
Marjorie: Perhaps her chaperone
May show some contrariety,
As frequently is known
In very good Society!
Nan: You take the chaperone to sup,
And charitably keep it up,
With iced champagne and claret cup,
There's nothing like variety!
Sophie: Your partner longs for cool and calm,
You find them both behind a palm.
Rajah: And you're utterly lost for an hour or two,
With your little pet partner there with you!
Men: Kiss your pretty partner at the ball.
Girls: Kiss your partner!
Men: Kiss your pretty partner at the ball.
Girls: Kiss your partner!
All: Then upon your knees you fall,
Vow you love her best of all,
And you've won your partner at the ball.
Girls: Who's your pretty partner at the ball?
Men: You're my partner!
Girls: Who's your pretty partner at the ball?
Men: You're my partner!
All: I should love to have the chance,
All through life with you to dance,
For I like my partner at the ball.
