No. 9 - Song - Mary and Chorus

MIDI File

Mary: We are good little girls, very worldly and wise,
And we can teach you just a few things;
And don't be surprised if we open your eyes,
For I dare say we know one or two things,
So when we come down to the sea for a swim,
We can take care to let people know it;
And if a girl's figure is dainty and trim,
Why, it's almost unkind not to show it,
Chorus: Not to show it!
Mary: We're all good girls,
Very lively little girls,
And lucky is the man who can call us wife;
But I fear we shall be naughty
Till we're getting on for forty —
We are goody little girls,
Goody, goody little girls,
But we like a bit of life!
Chorus: We're all good girls,
Very lively little girls,
And lucky is the man who can call us wife;
But I fear we shall be naughty
Till we're getting on for forty —
We are goody little girls,
Mary: Goody, goody little girls,
Chorus: But we like a bit of life!
   
Mary: When we go out to dine we take no chaperone,
But do not raise eyebrows enquiring;
The fact is we've got no mammas of our own,
And we're too good to go in for hiring;
We get on quite fast with our host so polite,
Meet him half-way perhaps just one more step;
We flatter him so, that he thinks it's all right,
But he finds himself left on the doorstep!
Chorus: On the doorstep!
Mary: We're all good girls,
Hungry, thirsty little girls;
It's fizz for us, but cheap claret for his wife;
And his best silk hat is kicked in,
And is filled with benedictine —
We are goody little girls,
Goody, goody little girls,
But we like a bit of life!
Chorus: We're all good girls,
Hungry, thirsty little girls;
It's fizz for us, but cheap claret for his wife;
And his best silk hat is kicked in,
And is filled with benedictine —
We are goody little girls,
Mary: Goody, goody little girls,
Chorus: But we like a bit of life!
   
Mary: Now an earl with a yacht sometimes takes us on board,
(But do not conclude we are shady),
And strolling on shore down at Cowes with my lord,
We stumble plump into my lady!
She looks us up thus,
And she looks us down so,
The earl tries to stammer and stutter;
The countess is not the sort we care to know,
So, being good girls, we just cut her!
Chorus: We just cut her!
Mary: For all good girls,
If they're clever little girls,
When walking with the man
should not see the wife;
For she's apt to give some trouble
If she thinks she sees her double.
We are goody little girls,
Goody, goody little girls,
But we know a bit of life!
Chorus: For all good girls,
If they're clever little girls,
When walking with the man
should not see the wife;
For she's apt to give some trouble
If she thinks she sees her double.
We are goody little girls,
Mary: Goody, goody little girls,
Chorus: But we know a bit of life!
