No. 20 - Duet - Sam and Peggy

MIDI File

Sam & Peggy: Mary and Jane were two little girls,
With babyish caps and innocent curls,
Now Mary and Jane were each of them twins,
And that's where the point of this story begins.
Mary and Jane were two sweet little things,
of the two it was perfectly plain
Peggy: That Mary, of course, was the prettier by far
Sam: But I ask! have you ever seen Jane?
   
Both: Mary and Jane were rather alike,
But Mary was striking and Jane you could strike,
They were both of them twins as I think I have told;
That's why they were each of them eighteen years old.
Mary and Jane were two sweet little things,
of the two it was perfectly plain
Peggy: That Mary's complexion was more pink and fresh,
Sam: It was fresh ev'ry morning on Jane.
   
Both: Mary and Jane both tried to look ten,
They talked baby talk when they met with young men,
They wore muslin frocks, and their hair was in plaits,
But 'twas awkward when small boys behind them cried "Rats!"
Mary and Jane were two sweet little things,
of the two it was perfectly plain
Peggy: That Mary, of course, had by far the best waist,
Sam: You could play hide-and-seek behind Jane.
