No. 15 - Sextet - "An English Gentleman"

MIDI File

Hughie: Though something has upset us,
And rage within me glows,
Please gentlemen, don't let us
Come to blows,
All: Come to blows!
Eynsford: I think in what you said, you
Were really right, perhaps;
Remember that we're educated chaps.
All: Cated chaps!
Remember that we're educated chaps!
Timothy: I feel that all suspicion
Of anger we should hide,
For men in our position
It's much more dignified, Dignified!
Others: Dignified!
Timothy: Dignified!
Others: Dignified!
All: Don't forget that you're a gentleman,
No matter what rude people say.
If your wrath gets stirred
By a vulgar word,
Simply turn your head away.
Just be calm and cool and dignified,
And keep your temper if you can;
Please bear in mind,
Always remember
You're an English gentleman!
Slithers: Though common people, may be,
For squabbles feel inclined,
Let ev'ry word we say be Most refined.
All: Most refined!
Toplady: Then soon a happy smile will
Replace a gloomy frown,
Our temper in a while will simmer down,
All: Simmer down!
Our temper in a while will simmer down!
Hughie: Yes, what's the good of raving
And using idle threats?
It only seems behaving
Like angry Suffragettes, Suffragettes!
Others: Suffragettes!
Hughie: Suffragettes!
Others: Suffragettes!
All: Don't forget that you're a gentleman,
No matter what rude people say.
If your wrath gets stirred
By a vulgar word,
Simply turn your head away.
Just be calm and cool and dignified,
And keep your temper if you can;
Please bear in mind,
Always remember
You're an English gentleman!
Don't forget that you're a gentleman,
No matter what rude people say.
If your wrath gets stirred
By a vulgar word,
Simply turn your head away.
Just be calm and cool and dignified,
And keep your temper if you can;
Please bear in mind,
Always remember
You're an English gentleman!
