No. 7 - Scene and Chorus - "The At Home!"

MIDI File

Chorus: Oh, it's so pleasant that you and we
Can meet at present for talk and tea!
So lucky this is, the cat's away,
And mice and misses and men can play;
We're all upsetting the College rule
And quite forgetting that this is school;
So freely brothers and sisters mix
With all the others from four to six!
Girls: Four to six!
Men: Four to six!
All: Four to six!
Sisters: I'm so glad that you have managed to be here,
Brother dear!
Men: I am really very proud to be invited!
Sisters: You will let me introduce you to my chum,
Now you've come!
Men: I am sure I shall be awfully delighted!
Other girls: I have often heard your sister talk of you!
Sisters: Yes, I do!
Men: Then I fear that her description doesn't flatter!
Other girls: Oh! perhaps it wouldn't do for me to say!
Sisters: Yes, you may!
Men: Well, so long as we are here, it doesn't matter!
All: Oh, it's so pleasant that you and we
Can meet at present for talk and tea!
So lucky this is, the cat's away,
And mice and misses and men can play;
We're all upsetting the College rule
And quite forgetting that this is school;
So freely brothers and sisters mix
With all the others from four to six!
Girls: Four to six!
Men: Four to six!
All: Four to six!
