MIDI File

Chorus: Here they come! Oh look and see!
Great big English sailor men!
Englishman he likes our tea,
Comes to taste it now and then.
Girls: Great big sailors walk like this —
Fight with any man they please,
Men: Marry little English miss,
Flirt with pretty Japanese.
All: Here they come! Oh look and see!
Great big English sailor men!
Englishman he likes our tea,
Comes to taste it now and then.
Comes to taste it now and then, yes, now and then.
Fairfax: Though you've seen a good deal in your walks about,
Here's the prettiest place of the lot!
It's the teahouse that ev'ryone talks about,
A delightfully curious spot.
Cunningham: Are your stories a myth and a mockery,
Of the excellent tea that they bring,
Of the quaint little pieces of crockery,
And the gay little geisha who sing?
Officers: Oh! we're heard of the frolic and fun
Of those dear little Japanese elves,
So we thought the best thing to be done
Was to come here and see for ourselves
Chorus: Oh! they've heard of the frolic and fun
Of those dear little Japanese elves,
So they thought the best thing to be done
Was to come here and see for themselves.
Though your ways are queer and funny,
Japs are very glad you've come.
Englishman has lots of money,
Englishman will spare us some,
Pretty geisha will amuse,
Dance or song she won't refuse.
Great big English sailors, please,
Try our teapot Japanese,
Sailors, please, oh try our teapot Japanese.
