No. 8 - Trio - "When once I get hold of a good-looking He."

MIDI File

Lady Virginia: When once I get hold of a good-looking He,
With a balance at Coutts' sufficient for me;
Or an Indian Prince who has stayed with the Queen,
And whose diamonds are really the biggest I've seen--
Now matter how much or how little I know of him,
Take it for granted I never let go of him!
Sir Lewis: Never oh, never,
Dr. Brierly: She never, no never,
All: no, never lets go of him!
   
Sir Lewis: When once I get hold of some popular case,
A divorce that involves any Duke in disgrace,
Or a "Card-Sharping Scandal," or "Serious charge,"
Putting seats on the Bench at a premium large —
Now matter how much or how little I know of it,
Take it for granted I never let go of it!
Lady Virginia: Never oh, never,
Dr. Brierly: She never, no never,
All: no, never lets go of him!
   
Dr. Brierly: When once I get hold of a patient who'll pay
And who likes me to visit him three times a day,
Or a wealthy dyspeptic in need of my care,
Or a liver that's owned by a millionaire —
Now matter how much or how little I know of him,
Take it for granted I never let go of him!
Lady Virginia: Never oh, never,
Sir Lewis: He never, no never,
All: no, never lets go of him!
   
Lady Virginia: When once I get hold of an artist in dress,
Who can make me look twenty or possibly less,
Or a hairdresser skilled in the tricks of his trade,
Who produces the newest Parisian shade--
Now matter how much or how little I know of him,
Take it for granted I never let go of him!
Sir Lewis: Never oh, never,
Dr. Brierly: She never, no never,
All: no, never lets go of him!
