No. 21 - Duet - Hughie and Timothy - "You come and stay with me"

MIDI File

Hughie: If you'll come down to my place,
To stay at my country house,
Each day it's my habit
To pot at a rabbit,
And then we can go for grouse!
Timothy: You'd best come down to my place,
I haven't been grousing much--
But my rabbits are dears,
Two lovely lop-ears,
You can shoot them both in the hutch!
  If you come and stay with me,
Come for a week or two!
Hughie: You're awfully kind,
I really don't mind,
Just now I've nothing to do!
Timothy: We're ten miles off the trains,
And fifty from the sea.
Next year we're going to lay our drains —
Hughie: No, you come and stay with me!
   
Hughie: We'll have a dance at my place,
I think you can have a bed;
You never will know me,
I'm doing Salome,
And then you can play the head!
Timothy: Suppose you come to my place,
And go to the Curate's tea;
You will hear me recite
"Kissing Curfew's Cup Night,"
And we two will sing a glee!
Hughie: If you come and stay with me,
Come for a week or two!
Timothy: You're awfully kind,
I really don't mind,
Just now I've nothing to do!
Hughie: I've concerts ev'ry night,
A ball from ten to three,
And then wind up with a pillow fight —
Timothy: No, you come and stay with me!
   
Timothy: You ought to come to my place,
And you will have fun enough —
I've got a good tip, let's
Have Aunt and the triplets,
So join us at blind man's buff!
Hughie: I wish you'd come to my place,
And call on Miss Heviswelle —
We will go to her place,
For she knows you by face,
But she wants to know you well!
Timothy: If you come and stay with me,
Come for a week or two!
Hughie: You're awfully kind,
I really don't mind,
Just now I've nothing to do!
Timothy: Our girls are merry folks,
They laugh the whole day through;
They'd even giggle at all your jokes —
Hughie: Then I'll come and stay with you!
