No. 4 - Duet - Sam and Peggy

MIDI File

Peggy: What a lot you must have been about,
If the tales you tell are true.
Sam: Tho' with lots of girls I'm seen about,
Still not one comes up to you!
Tell me now, don't you remember
How we kissed that night in June!
Peggy: Me! why that was in September,
And what's more, the afternoon!
Both: (Whistle) There I/you go!
It can't have been the same girl! No!
Sam: You'd got on a scarlet blouse!
Peggy: That's so likely milking cows!
Both: Then it must have been another girl!
Oh!
   
Peggy: You told me you loved no other,
When you vowed that you'd be true!
Sam: I was nothing but a brother
To the other girls I knew!
Peggy: Tho' I do not wish to scold you,
Many sisters you've possess'd!
Sam: Still, the tale I always told you
Was the same I told the rest.
Both: (Whistle) There I/you go!
It can't have been the same tale! No!
Sam: I never would deceive you.
Peggy: I never would believe you.
Sam: No more did all the other girls!
Both: Oh!
   
Peggy: Surely you have not forgotten
How you wrote and said you found
That your bank account was rotten
And I sent you up a pound!
Sam: You suggest you sent me money!
Things I know were looking black,
Still, it never came — that's funny!
Peggy: Yes it did, you paid me back!
Both: (Whistle) There I/you go!
It can't have been the same boy! No!
Peggy: Why of course you know you did;
Sam: Me send back a golden quid!
Both: It must have been another chap!
Oh!
