No. 7 - Song - Downham - "I haven't a moment to spare."

MIDI File

Downham: I'm sure I shall always remember the day
When I took up this Wargrave affair.
For ever since then I have been on the go,
I have look'd for him high and I've look'd for him low,
I have travell'd all over the world to and fro,
And I've not had a moment to spare,
For I dare not declare
That the heir isn't there!
And if people should murmur "Oh! do take a chair!"
I can never sit down for they don't seem aware
I havn't a moment to spare,
I havn't a moment to spare.
All day I must hustle,
And keep on the bustle,
I havn't a moment to spare!

A number of wrinkles I've certainly got,
And I've lost a good deal of my hair,
But when the occasion is really so grave,
Like an average mortal I cannot behave,
So I hardly allow myself time for a shave
For I havn't a moment to spare.
I don't care what I wear
Though I dare say you stare.
For how can I be dapper and quite debonair
When all over the place in a hurry I tear,
With never a moment to spare,
With never a moment to spare.
And if I'm kept waiting
It's so irritating,
I havn't a moment to spare!
