No. 17 - Song - Molly - The toy monkey

MIDI File

Molly: Poor little maiden, who loves a bit of fun,
Learns her propensity to rue!
Just look at me! What a pretty thing I've done!
Here's a delightful how-de-do!
A precious pickle I'm in!
Foolish little Molly,
Punish'd for your folly.
A wooden monkey climbin'
Isn't on a stick like you!
Click! Click!
I'm a monkey on a stick!
Any one with me can play,
And my antics he'll enjoy,
Till he finds a newer toy,
When he'll wish me a polite good day!
Chorus: Click! Click!
I'm a monkey on a stick!
Any one with me can play,
And my antics he'll enjoy,
Till he finds a newer toy,
When he'll wish me a polite good day!
   
Molly: Nobody doubts that this horrid Japanese
Wives — orientally — has got!
One, two, or three, or as many as you please--
I won't be added to the lot!
He thinks I can't resist him;
Rolling in his riches,
Fancies he bewitches,
But round my thumb I'll twist him,
Whether he's aware or not!
Click! Click!
He's a monkey on a stick!
Bound to let me have my way!
So I'll keep him all alive
Till my English friends arrive,
When I'll wish him a polite good day!
Chorus: Click! Click!
He's a monkey on a stick!
Bound to let me have my way!
So I'll keep him all alive
Till my English friends arrive,
When I'll wish him a polite good day!
